30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 26 - A song that you can play on an instrument


When we first got our piano, it was just like Christmas for me, no pun intended. I can be obsessive with my new things, and wow!, my piano and I became fast friends.

As soon as I taught myself to play, I set aside all my piano how-to books and started with my 'fake' music. I knew 'fake' music well from playing my guitar, so I was having all kinds of fun! 

If you don't know about 'fake' music, it's essentially cheating. It gives you the melody only, with chord suggestions. You can play the chords however you want. 

But my mom brought home a little Christmas book of songs she thought I might like. NOT fake music.

Anyway, 'O, Holy Night' was in there, taking up I don't know how many pages, and it's such a beautiful song - and VERY difficult to play properly.

So I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced...you get the idea, right? LOLOL...

I'm proud to say I that can play O, Holy Night, properly, on the piano.
