If you are curious about my music production process then this video is for you. We demonstrate the newly .launched Native Instruments SUPER 8 synthesizer by putting together a quick track in a synthwave style.
Whilst playing with adding my gear to kit.com I had the idea of putting together a list of my favorite music tuition books that I own and enjoy.

I like Josef’s teaching style and enthusiasm and this is an interesting and very simple technique that makes simple chords sound very much richer and more interesting. He demonstrates how playing a power chord (root and fifth) in each hand is used in a number of memorable Coldplay riffs.
I’m Jack’s biggest fan (and coincidentally) we’re actually both from the same town. Despite the title which sounds a bit dull, this is an essential watch for players of all abilities.
I use this chord voicing subconsciously all the time when comping and improvising, without actually breaking it down or realizing what I was doing.
Highly recommended watching to take playing of your major chords to the next level.
This is probably the final installment in my TOP 5 and how to play them series of videos. They were an awful lot of work to make so no plans for any more unless there is popular demand!
Hope you enjoy this episode where we feature my favorite organ riffs of all time. I wonder why you don’t hear so many organ riffs in modern pop songs?
Here is a detailed review of all of the musical intervals demonstrated on the piano keyboard. For each interval we’ll study how it is constructed, listen to the characteristics of the sound and play some songs that utilize each interval.
Follow up the video with a fun musical quiz that tests your ear training and knowledge of the intervals. I’ve created 20 questions to test how well can you hear intervals played on the piano, and if you can sing the intervals when asked. Best of luck!
Today’s lesson is a combination of a music technology tutorial of two cinematic sounding VST plugins from Native Instruments, Kinetic Toys and Thrill.
I’ll also give you some ideas about how to compose soundtracks for the horror movie genre.
You can download the audio stems for this lesson using the link below, you are free to use them however you wish, just give me a credit!
Another piano lesson in the form of a demonstration how to play 5 of my picks for the most epic electric piano riffs. I’ll show you an overhead view of the piano, plus falling note and musical notation displays.
Good luck and have fun playing these riffs!
My old man shared with me a nice article he wrote in 2002 for a Buddy Holly fan community. He asked me if it was useful for my piano teaching, and I asked him if I could share it with you here.
So here is the download. Feel free to use and share however you like.
The second video in my “Top 5” series, where I demonstrate some piano arrangements of my favorite riffs. This video features some classic piano pop songs, I’ll show you which notes to play using Synthesia and the overhead camera view.
