In The End, Piano cover. (Music for Sunday night #67)

Tonight I want to show you my piano work. In a previous post I told you I was working in a cover of one song by Linkin Park. It was "In The End", and I said I'd upload a video when I'd be ready. Well, the moment has came.

Here is my modest Linkin Park cover, for piano. Don't be harsh with me. I am just a beginner! Enjoy.

New PC

Last Saturday three PCs came to my hands. As usual, they needed to be fixed. The first two machines wasn't for me, the reparation was easy and soon they were working, so I gave them back to their owner. But the third computer was for my use..

It didn't have neither the necessary components to work. A week before that Saturday, my computer was almost broken and slowly, and finally that day just didn't work. So, it was about time to work.

Of course, I thought about fixing my PC and not consider the other, because, as I've said, it was very incomplete. The surprise came when I tried to run it to check the system specs. The PC had a Pentium 4, 3 Ghz, 1 Gb of  RAM and a good mother board with AGP slot.

I liked that, so I used my computer to complete the other. I needed the power supply, the reader units and the sound card. Besides an additional HD and a graphic card.

Then, I had to do the worst part. I downloaded the drivers, installed all my programs, did all the configurations, customize the Windows interface, and copy my files from my old HDs.
I've just noticed how easy is writing it, but this took me the whole Sunday and Monday, and I did all in record time.

Now I'm writing this from the mentioned PC of which I feel proud. Moreover, it's INCREDIBLY quick, even with all my apps installed. I did't hope so much speed. By the way, I can feel the heat which proceeds from the processor. It will be good in Winter.

I hope the computer works well for many years, and I also hope not to broke more DDR memories. (I'm having 6 bad DDRs on my desktop, all broken in record time, I'm surprised).

It starts with: One thing.

The other day I watched a cover of "What I have done" by Linkin Park in youtube, for piano. It sounded very good and later I thought about doing one version of other song. Moreover, I almost didn't use my piano keyboard and it was time to try something new.

I chose "In the end", by the same band, as you know, mainly because I've always loved this song and I know it perfectly.

It was the first time I wanted to do a good cover. So I accepted that this wouldn't be a one-day project. I wanted it to be as accurate as possible, so I kept at least, the same original tone.

I spent several hours working and the result was very good, although every day I add small details. By the way, I did it by ear, like the majority of covers, and futhermore it is so much quicker and more pleasant than deal with sheet music.

Now, I'm practising it every day so that I can record it some day. Because by now I can't play it without errors. Maybe in a couple of weeks you have a video posted. Or maybe still not.

The silly week

For some reason I feel obligated to write a post about the new beginning. Moreover, I have to this is a good practice for my writing exam I'll do tomorrow.

The thing is easy to describe. We've started. A few people with resignation and calmness, and other people with too much will and happiness. I think I am in a boring period of time. At this moment I have almost any doubt about what to do next. It's just walk the way quietly and all will be alright. I will continue waiting, the day will come.

Meanwhile, we'll try to get to the Saturday of this silly week safe and sound. But before leaving, I have to repeat one of the first ideas I posted on this blog's beginnings:

<You realise the time goes quickly when you look back, but if you look at the present you don't feel so.>

(Not applicable to holidays), hahaha.

Anyone wants to speak about the end of this, but now it's about time we... Me neither...
