Well, you dudes will have to tell me what you all think. This here is a tutorial on how to play my rendition of Winter Wrap Up on the piano or keyboard.
Based on multiple requests both private and public I decided to put this together and see how it goes.
Judging on the reaction I get from this I might be making making more.
It was pretty fun to make, but this is also the song I know the best out of the ones that I have put up so far.
To re-iterate what I have said in other videos and messages I don't/can't read piano sheet music. I am doing my best however through the use of hand signals and annotations to guide your guys through this great song =)
The way I play it:
Left hand -
Most of the left hand is exceptionally repetitive, but then again, the song itself is exceptionally repetitive =P
I believe the correct term for what most of the song revolves around for me are "arpeggiated scales", though feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
75% of the song revolves around 2 chord progressions, and once you have them down you will be able to pay more attention to what is going on with the right hand without even looking at your left.
The most difficult parts by far for the left hand are Applejack's verse and the procession at the very end of the song. Each has 4-note chords and lots of them, and if you are learning this by heart like I do you might find yourself getting stuck on these for longer than the rest of the song.
Right hand -
The right hand doesn't move around that much truth-be-told. Once again, Applejack's verse might give you some trouble for a little while, but everypony else has a fairly repetitive verse.
Again, about 75-90% of the song is fairly repetitive and can be easily learned.
Oh, and get ready to use your right pinky finger a lot!
How do I recommend learning it? :
I recommend learning the chords for the left hand first and then learning one verse on the right hand at a time until you feel comfortable with it or like moving on to the next.
Start weaving the left and right hand together as soon as possible, it will help with muscle memory.
If you find yourself getting stuck on one particular part, practice it a lot right before going to bed and then play it again once or twice right when you wake up the next morning.
Don't expect to master this song in one day! It took me 3 weeks to get comfortable enough playing it all the way through to record it for the first time.
Listen to the song itself too!
If you want to get all of the little nuances right then listen very carefully to the song itself and pay attention to where the rests are and the speed at which it is going.
Credit for the original composition goes to Daniel Ingram and I'm sure it's worth mentioning the fine folks at Hasbro at well.
