    Piano

    Hey guys,

    Does anybody have any ideas on piano practicing... I was kinda trying to get back into it (it started when I tried to play the "Sonata Quasi una Fantasia" <Moonlight> by Bethoven and it sounded like crap) but I really don't know where to start... I have been trying to practice scales and arpeggios (painfully slow...) anything else?

    Any help will be greatly apreciated.

    Regards,

    I'm interested too!

    One thing I've worked on is chord structures and rhythm playing on piano. Work on 12-bar blues progressions and translate your guitar ideas onto the piano.

    I had a question one time and came across this website for vocal stuff.

    For a breathing, all you have to do is focus on expanding your stomach (well thats what it looks like, but it is really the diapghram expanding i think). Take deep breaths. You can put a book on your stomach and watch it go up and down as well. This is actually extremely relaxing. But the one thing you want to avoid is bringing your chest up when you breath.
