During this pandemic it has been quite the challenge to play music with other people. If you have tried to play music together via zoom, you’ll know how challenging that can be because of the delay. It’s pretty much impossible to play together.
I have been using other apps, one in particular called Acapella, which allows you to collaborate with other people but only if you have an iPhone. One of my bandmates and I however, figured out a workaround.
We’ve collaborated a few times with some songs and tunes, and though it certainly doesn’t replace being live, it still is kind of fun.
While I was away on vacation, my bandmate recorded a random tune on the piano for me to collaborate. Not having my instrument while on vacation, I didn’t even watch the video until today.
After I recorded this week’s tune, I decided since I had my recording equipment out I’d check out my bandmate’s video. Wouldn’t you know, he recorded the same tune I worked on for this week. It’s kind of serendipitous, don’t you think?
Though I learned this tune a while ago, I planned to dust it off this week because it goes well with last week’s tune, Road to Eyries. Here is the tune itself, the tune played in a set, and the collaboration. I hope you enjoy.
