Battle with Gruntilda – Banjo-Kazooie (Piano Practice, 2014-05-31)

Me attempting to play the first half of an arrangement of “Battle with Gruntilda” by Grant Kirkhope on the piano on May 31, 2014 at 8:42 PM EDT.

I made this video to document my progress on this piece and only played the first half of the piece, since I am not yet able to play parts of the last half coherently.

This piece is featured in the 1998 Nintendo 64 video game, Banjo-Kazooie, and appears near the end of the game during the final battle with the evil witch, Gruntilda.

This arrangement is by “The Deku Trombonist.”

Can’t Help Falling in Love – Elvis Presley (Piano, 2014-05-31)

Me playing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by George Weiss, Hugo Peretti, and Luigi Creatore, which is better known as an Elvis Presley song, on the piano on May 31, 2014 at 8:08 PM.

This arrangement is from 1961 or earlier. I played it without the repeat. There are mistakes at 00:16, 00:21, 00:23, 00:41, 00:54, 00:57, 01:10, and others. I will probably record another version when I improve.
