Hey... I'd like your opinion on my performance on this style, I'm seeking job as pianist in Restaurants or Hotels but no luck so far, they have musicians already, still, there are more places I can go to offer my services.. There is not much Jazz in Mexico, there are tons of so-called musicians with keyboards playing a melody along midi background, sometimes the piano is there but they prefer to carry their heavy stuff (bad sign). My performance in these videos is already good enough for my city, but you people from other places, specially American guys, even New York guys, I bet you know pianist play way better than this, so I'd like you to tell me how could I improve this, all I want is $300 pesos (like $25 dollars) per hour, I'll be happy with that. I come from Classical world, I have taken these piece from fakebooks, no complete score, I try to make the best arrangement I can, is always kinda improvised, not 100% defined, each time sounds a bit different, I also can introduce sections in the middle and make the piece longer etc... I'm not yet in full control of this style, you can notice at the end, the last note, my finger...I'm a bit nervous :D (also I was cold) YC Shoutbox sound, chord progression at the end :D, it is not officially called The YCSB ending. I think I got nervous at the end too, kinda lost track of harmony, (I can't blame temperature on that) so what do you think ?, just replace in your head the casio sound with a real piano, my room with a much better ambient. (Note, Digital pianos resonance is way weaker than real pianos, it automatically forces me to add more notes, to avoid emptiness, I usually play less stuff on a real piano.)
