Comedian Wayne Federman presents a short piano lesson demonstrating the three fundamentals of playing in the style of Chico Marx.
I am obviously not as proficient as the amazing Chico but you get the idea. Again, this is just the basics: Shooting, Flicking, and Gliding (remember use only the NAIL of the middle finger).
I will examine some other tricks and techniques (left hand smash, ragtime, intros, etc.) in my next tutorial, How To Play Piano Chico Marx Style Part 2. Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lx_Q3G...
Special thanks to the very talented pianist/actor Peter Slutsker (he played Chico on Broadway) who taught me the "glide."
