Hi, I'm a piano nub, and I used to play piano when I was 6 years old, up to 8 years old.. then I convinced my mom to stop torturing me lol. 8 years later, I told her I want to learn again, and now I'm starting to learn again.. So basically, I know about half of the first movement of Moonlight sonata, the intro for Canon in D.. and 2 measures short of Castle Cornelia from Final Fantasy 1..

My Piano teacher said I should focus on the technical stuff first, as to build my "toolbox".. So I'm trying those long overdue triads and scales..

My C major scale sounds like that of an M16, (burst fire lol) because of the tucking.. If I play it slowly though, it's more consistent.

and those simple triads are nightmare since I keep getting it wrong.. because I keep pressing a B instead of a C.. Actually, I got the right hand all right, and the left hand sorta in the mud.

Taming the piano is pretty hard lol, in video games, you get a save point where if you die, you continue from where you died. On the piano, if you make a mistake, it ruins the mood, the emotion and it's game over. It's more precise too, in Street Fighter IV, the fireball motion is very lenient.. you can wiggle your joystic and press a punch button and you get a fireball. A scale? Not so much.

So anyways, my practice routine.. C major scale and triads.. just keep doing them till I go autopilot?
