  15. Looking forward to the Piano with Jonny courses

  16. I believe I was wrong when I said I had found the answer to my question.  I apologize to all.

    It remains one the most puzzling question of all times to me.  I'll say no more about the subject.

  17. I’m so excited to have a chance @58 to be able to learn to play the piano in a way that I will be able to achieve my goals.

  18. I think I have just found the answer to my question and confusion.  "Where did the Flats comes from?", was my question.  The answer can be found in Quick Tip, "How to Improvise Piano With th Dorian Scale.

    C-Dorian as used in this case is simply the first note of the scale you are looking at.  Actually, "C" is the SECOND NOTE OF THE (Bb Major Scale and would be called the Dorian scale starting with the second note of the Major Scale.  Or, in this case.  Note "C''.  The diatonic structure of Bb Major requires 1/2 tones between notes 3-4, and 7-8 just like any other Major Scale.  Thus it produces note b4 and b8, or Eb and Bb.  Now if we start on the second note, we get C - D - Eb - F - G - A - Bb.  That is the Dorian Scale of Bb Major.  Now I'm getting somewhere.  Thanks Peter, you've been helpful.

      Yes is is.  I had just finished flying it when this picture was taken.  I don't know how to make it smaller, but its interesting,

      Lucky man. I recognized the slide-back canopy. I spent seven years in the Canadian air force—not a pilot—just ground crew working on F-101 Voodoos.

      It was interesting that you noticed.  The story on that day of the photo was, I had just returned from a local flight after paying tribute to my Father's birthday who was a B-29 pilot over the Pacific Theater in WWII.  After doing a couple barrel-rolls to either side of an imanginary B-29, flown by my Father who would have been 90 years old on that day.  Wishing him a Happy Birthday, I returned to base.  This picture remains an important one for me.  BTW, we call those canopys "Wind-Breakers" on the Voodos.

  19. Hi Maeva,

    I am doing the Bossa Nova challenge, also.

    It is so much fun.  I just started yesterday, so I am quite far behind for the month of August but I’ll try to catch up.

    I have only played classical piano until now, so I am having to learn to “play around” and relax my playing.

      Hi Gail,

      Thanks for your message ! Yes, the bossa challenge is fun ! PWJ is a really great place to learn new styles. And don't worry about starting the monthly challenge later - I often keep working on monthly challenges one or two months later 🙂

      Looking forward to your posts.

      I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who doesn’t really “finish “ a challenge at the end of the month.  I’ll try to take video this evening of weeks 1 and 2.
