Radiohead — No Surprises

Things practiced: looking out the window

Tools used: Canon Rebel T3i running Magic Lantern (video), Yamaha P120 electronic piano + Zoom H4n audio recorder (sound)

Piano: Beethoven sonata no. 14 in C# minor (Moonlight), mvt. 3: Presto agitato

Thing practiced: piano

Tool used: a piano

I used to play the piano (somewhat haphazardly) as a kid, but I abandoned all music-related activities after damaging my third-favorite finger five years ago. Recently, though, I’ve been scrabbling to grasp whatever wispy skills I can muster, so I try to play whenever I’m near a piano. Which is rarely.

Turns out, I kinda suck. But that’s what practice is for, right?
