Rock and Roll Keyboard Lessons Playing Rock Keyboards in a Band

In this clip, we're going to be talking aboutplaying in a group and what that really means. The main thing that playing in a group meansversus playing solo by yourself, is just listening to everybody else, everything else flows downfrom that. The timing of how you're playing and how you're playing along with everyoneelse; and just simplifying, you know, changing your part to make sure that you know, it fitswith what everyone else is playing. Those are the two most important parts but thoseare both, involve listening. So let's take the piece, the little part that I just recentlyplayed and look at how that might change based on playing in a group. In this piece, beforeI was playing all the different parts that

are necessary to make it sound full as a solokeyboard piece. So if you listen, you hear the bass line playing and the top melodicrift kind of hand playing.One of the things that you can do to start off is just listen to make sure that that'snot getting in the way of anybody else. If the bass player is going dodododododo,then you don't have to necessarily play it in full chords. If the drummer is playinga beat that is a little bit different from datdodatdododatdo, then you can adjustyour part to that. Or maybe the bass player goes up high like to a certain point in thesong where you want to change that so instead of you playing down here, maybe you move itup an octave or so just to make sure that

it fits with what everything, you know everythingthat's going on in the song. One of the big differences between people who typically playpiano solo and people that play in a band context is the whole idea of playing by ear.The, you know, everything that you learn when you're playing by yourself, you know, withmusic is helpful but a lot of times you really have to go back past that music and you know,what's the idea that you're trying to get across with that music rather than just playingthe notes on the page, you know, really saying why does this melody change here and why doesit get louder and softer. The dynamics and just the movement of the piece and all themelody and everything that goes in there.

You really have to start thinking about thatmore than just playing it so you're reacting to what everyone else is doing. And when everybodyis reacting at the same time in a band, that's when the magic really happens.
