So I’m responding to a blogging “prompt” here on WordPress.com. The prompt for today is “Honk.”
Honk…Honky-tonk…Honky-tonk piano! I knew I would get to the piano sooner or later. In this case, two degrees of separation. Musically speaking, two half-steps?
Since my blog is mostly for piano players, here’s something I composed for piano a few years back, while thinking of a honky-tonk in the Old West. I didn’t actually have time to learn the piece, so I just wrote it down and then created a MIDI file from that. This video is just an audio capture of the MIDI file being played back on my PC. In other words, I did not physically perform this version. Give credit to robots when credit is due.
