I Survived My Second Performance

I slept, I eat, I breathe, I sweat...Magic. I even dreamt about it one night. A song I was not familiar with. And, finally its ready, but still, not without wrong stroke of keys or embarassing mistakes. (You can imagine me wincing, everytime it happens)And a very much simplified version. Oh well... Next song request will be from a list of my 'known' songs, if not give me 365 days to master...hahaha!

Have a listen... but if you want to hear the real thing, you can find Barry Manilow 'live' posted in my earlier entry, Could it Be Magic.

You are too kind. But thanks for appreciating my effort. :) After a few takes with lotsa mistakes, I said, take it or leave it'..hahaha.. But I also see this as a personal challenge. Its a beautiful song and I'm beginning to really like it and will still continue practising this piece.

Wow, me in an entry opener? What about ya? Must be piano. I'll check it out soon!

Hi Dato

Ya, smoother but still needs knockings for making mistakes. Need more drillings...haha

Salam again ydiana,

It just occured to me, how about a simpler song? 'And I Love You So', by Perry Como, and the link is

I learned to play the song by ear and believe I still can play it. So, it should not be a problem to you :)
