Hi Hugh,

I would not be able to play using those videos.

I do not play anything by ear as I spent 10 years as a child having weekly lessons on classical piano music. I can still sight read most popular music and being able to read the bass clef also helped me in my bass playing career. I have always been jealous of the good ear player who could play lots of music with never a printed note in sight. My ageing brain did not allow me to memorise anything so NO music was never an option. Some of the best world’s musicians never read a note in their life so they must have had an exceptional ear.

Regards,

Ron

Hello, MY OPINION ONLY! Playing by "ear" or as I put it By Guesswork means that the piece being played is a re-composition of the original. The player, listening to ME playing, will play All my mistakes and then add their own errors. It may sound good at the time but that's an opinion. Regards, Den.
