Little bit of there .
This is Lesson number 13 of How to Play Blues Piano , and we are branching Out into rock and roll blues , Boogie , Rock and Roll .
They are all related , as we've often discussed and without boogie Woogie .
We never would have had rock and roll , and I want to do a little bit of rock and roll piano today if I had to put in a nutshell .
What the trick to rock and roll piano ?
Is it simply straighten out the rhythm of boogie Woogie ?
Um , we've We've covered this before .
If you come over here , left a camera , look at the left hand .
Typical boogie Woogie left hand rib .
Simple one .
I now rock and roll is get rid of Get rid of the sort of grace note and just no , I Is it difficult actually , doing it with both hands together and what I would do is avoid doing the Grace note in rock and roll , because then it kind of turns into boogie , rock and roll .
It's it's it's straight a rhythm .
It's much more .
Have a look at the right hand riff , and again , it's all I'm doing is .
I'm just playing those .
Now you can do a grey not in the right hand .
Do a grey not in the right hand , but don't do a grey note in the left hand .
I think that's that's the key .
So So you can do this , for example , going to share with you today .
But remember what I said in the previous session , getting into the habit of singing , even if you're not a great singer just playing the piano .
It's great to be a great piano player , but I think if you look at pianists like Jules Holland , Dr John , uh , they are brilliant piano players , but not great singers .
Uh , but they do sing and they do a fantastic job , and they put the piano and vocals together .
Uh , I'm not a great singer , you know .
I just croak it out , but I think often it's a psychological thing .
You know , piano players just see themselves as piano players , and they don't want to sing .
But I encourage you in this lesson to break out from that mould and on your own .
When you're practising , sing a few songs .
Often I think it's more to do with embarrassment and kind of psychological imprisonment that pianists won't sing rather than the fact that they can't .
So as long as you can sing in tune And if you're a piano player , you're you're not really tone deaf .
Have a go .
I encourage you to sing in private And , um , you know , get a few Elvis songs off so that you become a more rounded entertainer .
So that's all I want to show you today , remember , Have a look around this channel .
