Why should it take me so long to come up with a piano cover of the Game of Thrones Main Title?
In this post I will go very briefly through how I make my videos (as of June 2017). I will link to other posts that go more in depth with some of the stuff.
Below you can see my little setup consisting of a Roland RD-800 keyboard, an Avid Mbox audio-interface and a powerful computer. This is basically what you need to start making some piano recordings — and you don’t have to throw away all your money on expensive stuff like I have been stupid enough to do 😉
It’s November 2014. I’ve been posting videos for almost 18 months and yet I have less than 500 subscribers. However, I don’t want to give up. A huge blockbuster is about to hit the movies and Hans Zimmer will score it — this is my chance.
About the Spring Waltz
According to YouTube the second most popular piece composed by famous polish composer Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849) is his so-called Spring Waltz.
But… did Chopin really write a Spring Waltz?
Some day in November last year I was at my job listening to some classical music while working. YouTube’s autoplay decided what I should hear… Suddenly some melody that I never heard before appeared, it was awesome. I opened my browser to see that this was the so called Spring Waltz by Frédéric Chopin.
