A current project

I’ve long loved “The Masochism Tango” and lately have been working on it at the piano. It’s coming along, but my piano noodling sounds positively awful compared to Tom Leher’s.

To see and hear more of his work, take a look at the list here. My other favorite of his is this one. It’s strange to find humor in something that scared the crap out of me during a good chunk of the 1980s (I lived near not one but two primary nuclear targets).

    And you’ll upload a video of yourself playing this when you’ve mastered it, so we can watch? ;-)

    I don’t think I’d be half as entertaining to watch as Lehrer is!
