In the majority of cases, I am always getting it wrong, the key that is.

I am lucky to have inherited my Dad’s natural ear for music, but that doesn’t mean I’m pitch perfect. I can hear a song and provided it has a decent distinguishable melody (not like a lot of today’s ‘musical garbage’) I can pick out the basics, and then make up the rest.
This gift did not hold me in good stead with my sister who was having piano lessons and could not get to grips with some pieces she was trying to master. I heard Beethoven’s Fur Elise once and picked it out (not the intricate fiddly bits) as soon as I got to a piano keyboard to try.

It is also the only piece I am aware of that I play in the correct key,  A minor, as everything else I play is usually in F#. However, I don’t play it as fast as this.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
