It's Funny How Things Work
One of the things this particular woman cannot multi-task in, is singing whilst playing the piano. I just can't. I start to put my fingers in the wrong spot and lose my place in the music. It just ends up a very sorry mess. Unless of course what I'm playing is sooooo basic that I can't muck it up. There ya go...Rel & Fi, if you're ever inclined to watch, now you know my little idiosyncrasy!
So this morning I was playing away quite happily (in church), kinda humming because mucking up with 200 people hearing it, really isn't what you want to be doing. We start a new song and I get this tap on my back. "Trac, he's playing the wrong key". The guitarist who did the intro forgot to move his capo and I can't transpose to save myself, let alone the fact I had no idea what key he was playing in! You know what? I got to sing instead of play. A rare thing when it's my turn to play!
