So hard to do the right thing sometimes

So hard to do the right thing sometimes

Liner Notes: 

A blues instrumental based on feeling sad. It's a one take improvisation piano recorded on top of a GarageBand drum track. I then added a keyboard bass and some 'live' keyboard drums.'

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

this has so much great atmosphere! love those piano trills/triplets - and you really set up the blues feeling nicely! wish i played piano! (more then the few basic chords i know)

There is a smooth feel to this but it also feels kind of dirty an gritty, like something you'd here in a smokey jazz club. The melody is great, there is a somewhat sexiness to the way you are playing that I like a lot. Very nice job,

I don't listen to jazzy piano (or any jazz, or piano really) that much so I enjoyed expanding my horizons for a few minutes. I felt like it was taking me on a ride through an old city or something. I could see many parts of it as being background music for a film too.

You tap into some deep roots here, mate! I saw Ray Bryant live once and this makes me think of that performance. Superb!

I dig your playing - it's playful and soulful, and has a greasy rhythm. I'd love to hear you with a real band.
