Thanks. The link you provided did not work, but I think I found the piece you are referring to here: youtube.com/watch?v=aG2HNZ0tBMk

comment How do I learn to detect chord voicing by ear?
Thanks, I have been playing piano and have gotten used to playing chords off sheet music. What I was looking for is, how I can use the instrument specifically to develop this ability.

comment Is there some symbolic meaning to breaking all the instruments during or at the end of your music video?
I could tell you the meaning, but then I'd have to kill you!

You've hit the bull's eye! +1 for inventions and also go on and learn the sinfonias. Great answer!

comment Appreciating the music of J. S. Bach
The problem with taking 2 for an answer is I am able to understand and appreciate harmonic material from other composers very much, especially, as I have mentioned, the romantic ones. There seems to be something very universal about it. This is so intense in some of the sections that I feel that I know these composers intimately, and I become one with their emotions. But with Bach, I am like 'I realise this is something grand, but I have no clue what u're trying to say.'

comment Learning blues piano from music score
Apparently, this is yet to be established in this genre partly because, as you say, it is very improvisational in nature and partly because the genre itself is much younger.

comment Learning blues piano from music score
I liked your answer, but firmly believe that my question does not ask for shopping recommendation. In Classical music, we hear of a 'standard repertoire' and that contains seminal works that define and form the path for any student's progress. You may say this is a matter of opinion, but the different opinions converge largely on the works of a few masters. My question tries to identify a counterpart for this in blues. I ask if there is a standard as against seeking a personal recommendation.

@cornbreadninja: I have a list of pieces I want to learn of Chopin, Mozart, etc and I search the net and download. But as I am new to blues, I really don't know what to look for! Thanks for your 'No money down blues' but how exactly do u play the LH of it?
