The Story Behind "Traded"

Traded

I'll never understand why you traded your life for mine, but I'm so grateful that you did.

Piano Improvisation

Thepiano is a "piano freestyle" (piano improvisation), unrehearsed.

This is a method that I use to teach myself how to play piano. I play by ear and I am able to construct basic chords, but I am not able to play chords and melodies at the same time...yet.

The piano freestyle forces me to come up with "melodic sentences" on-the-fly. I find that I am not thinking so much about what note to play on the keyboard. Instead, I'm thinking music "phrases" or riffs comprised of many notes. I can't fully explain how this works, but I think it's like talking. i don't think about the individual letters that make up the words i say, I think about the sentences and just say the words.

I am surprised by what I come up with using this piano freestyle method. The more I use this method, the longer the "melodic sentences" become and the fewer mistakes
