Day Twenty-Six – A Song I Can Play:
Like most first-generation Filipino-Americans that spent the majority of their formative years in the late 70’s and early 80’s, I took years and years of piano lessons. Yet even after all those years of lessons, I still can’t read notes quick enough; nor can I count out the correct melody so readily. Unless, of course I already knew how a particular song was supposed to sound.
Yeah, I seam to have an “ear” for music, but not necessarily the talent to actually play music … at least not in the caliber I would need to in order to be that famous musician I had always dreamed of becoming in high school.
During one of the years I was playing a lot on the piano, I was able to figure out how to play the music to Yaz’s “Only You.”
Now ask me if I know how to play the entire song now? Uhm … the answer would be “Nope.”
Which is really too bad, because I would love to start playing the piano again.
What is with this 30-day song challenge?
What was yesterday‘s song?
