Here is a short keyboard piece that I've titled "Butterflies." I created it about six months ago. The last time I was screwing around with the keyboard.
The title has significance in at least to ways. First, I was experimenting with an approximation of the left-hand technique referred to as "Butterfly Stride." I saw Dr. John do it on one of his instructional videos. Second, I think it sounds like how I feel when sharing in person or online. I get nervous and queasy. I get "butterflies."
I have never taken a piano lesson. We never had a piano around growing up. I don't have access to one now.I have only experimented now and then with an electronic keyboard and Garageband.
Oh, did spend a short amount of time with the lessons that come with the app. Very short. Mostly I just apply my sparse knowledge of music theory gained ages ago from the Mel Bay guitar books. I'll talk more about this later. It's stuff like knowing a major chord uses the first, third, and fifth tones of any scale. And how many steps are between each. But mostly I just know. My brain does, and it tells my hands what to do.
It's completely strange how I can do this. I can't explain it. I just do it. I sit down for a few hours, get obsessed, get into flow, and things start happening. Time seems to expand, my brain tells me what key to hit, I see it, and I can hardly go wrong. Weird, huh.
Hope you enjoy.
