Rigor Mortis Intro

Assuming you’re in the key of C, here’s a catch-all intro I call the ‘Rigor Mortis Intro’ you can use.

    EXCELLENT INFO AND IDEAS. I HAVE STUDIED PIANO, CLASSICAL, POP, PLAYED IN MANY BIG BANDS, ETC. SCOTT’S METHODS, BOOKS ONE ON ONE ARE WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST. I REALLY ENJOY EVERYTHING HE DEMOS AND BOOKS HE SELLS. I HAVE MORE ENJOYMENT PLAYING HIS IDEAS, ETC, THEN WHAT I USE TO SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TRYING TO LEARN. MOST OF HIS FAKE BOOKS SONGS ARE IN THE KEY OF “C”
    , BUT IT MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO PLAY FOR BEGINNERS, BUT IT LEAVES A BEGINNER THE MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO CREATE HIS OR HER OWN IDEAS ON TOP OF SCOTT’S IDEAS, THEN GRADUALLY ON TO THE SHARPS AND FLATS. ETC. LOVE IT. ART P

    Hi Scott, I just checked this course sample. Looks like a fun way to learn & can practice
    whenever convenient for me. Now need to check if I have equipment to do.
    Thank you,

    Looks easy,.Can a 72 year old man who can only play a few major scales. learn from your lessons?

    Learning to play piano is in my bucket list. I took a few lessons 6 years ago, but was so bored with what I now know was that I was being taught a classical style of music.
    I don’t want to be a classical musician, I just want to have fun, and learn a few of my favorite songs and a few Christmas
    songs.
    Can your program help me? Thank You Tom Pecor.

      You’re pitching to me underhand Tom 🙂 For fear of sounding like I’m telling you what you want to hear, but you are EXACTLY the prime target and beneficiary of my Course and my style of teaching. You’ll soak it up like a sponge…

    This is a good tip. I also think the same idea would apply very well to ending a song. For example, if my song ends in F, I can play the F chord, then jump one octave higher to play F, Edim, Dm, C, Bb, Am, Gm, and F. Are these called triads? I still think I’m a beginner, so try not to criticize me too much. Thanks Scott. Always appreciate your suggestions. H. “Gipper” Morris

    I really enjoy finding about these find out these little, yet simple methods. In fact, I save all of your informative e-mails in a “Piano” folder on my computer so that I can refer to them at a future date.
    Thanks
