Formula 1 Excitement

Recently I wrote an arrangement of Brian Tyler’s Formula 1 Theme for piano. It’s a great piece - very dramatic, always gets my blood pumping at the beginning of a race! I recorded a video of myself playing it and put it up on Youtube last weekend, in honour of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix this weekend.

Well, thanks to a little help from Reddit, the official Formula social media team noticed it and ended up posting it on their Youtube, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Cue my phone blowing up with notifications from excited fans from around the world! It’s been an exciting couple of days watching the video gain traction, with hundreds of thousands of views between all three sites.

I also gained a few hundred new subscribers on Youtube so I guess I’ll have to think carefully about what my next upload will be!

Here’s the video. Enjoy!


Ukulele Adventures

As mentioned in my last post, I got a ukulele! Hooray! It's a little baby soprano one. I already play guitar to some degree, so it hasn't been too much of a stretch to apply that knowledge to my uke. Lots of fun. I've played more ukulele in the last week and a half than I've played guitar in years.

To be more accurate, Sam gave me the ukulele since I'd been playing his tenor uke a lot. So what else could we do now that there were two of us and two ukuleles? Make a cheesy uke duet video, of course!

More adventures to come, I'm sure. Enjoy!
