While practicing piano today, I realized I needed to work on more scales. My hands just felt weak (and, yes, it was a weird thing to realize), so I thought “okay, what key is this in, I need to get the scale and fingerings for it.”
And then I realized something else. A real strength behind Simply Piano (at some point, I’ll write a full-fledged review) is the way it breaks complicated songs down into components and drills you on those parts, quickly and briefly.
“What I really need,” I thought, “is music notation software, and I’ll just start making those drills for the sheet music I’m working on.”
Then, because I’m in a sharing mode right now, I thought “that’d be a cool online resource: PDFs of sheet music, but with various drills and exercises attached.” The idea ballooned in my mind. Songs that are in G (like the one I was practicing) could be tagged, and automatically also include scales and chords arpeggios…
Now, I have a whole new project that I want to develop, abandoning the many others I have in the pipes.
I won’t, but I want to.
