Piano Freestyle - Moody InstruMental Music bt TaurusBeats aka Taurus M. James

Back from a much needed vacation, I was inspired to do a few new songs. This is one of them.

In this video, I'm recording some "freestyle" (impromptu) piano parts for the song and listening to how I want to arrange the song later.

Why I Make Moody Instrumental Music - Testimony by TaurusBeats aka Taurus M. James

In 1997, I was following the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan, striving to be the best I could be in the Nation of Islam. One night, I prayed to God to, "Tell me what I am missing".

I was broke, bitter, angry and depressed. I wanted Him to tell me why my life was so messed up. I knew there was more to life - more to my life, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't make my life better.

The next morning, I awoke saying, "Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the Son of God!" I was sitting straight up in my bed by the third time I spoke these words.

Shook Ones Piano Freestyle by TaurusBeats

I started doing piano freestyles over popular music a few years ago as a way to train my ears and improve my ability to play by ear. This time, I'm playing along with Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Part II.

This is just something I do to have fun and work on my ear training. I am not a pianist at all and I don't know how to play piano like a pianist. I just try to make the keys play what I hear in my head.
