7 Here I publish the plain video to the [recording I published
8 yesterday](/posts/2010-08-04-alto-stick.html).

10 This is for documentation purposes only. Enjoyment is just a possible side
11 effect. Just look at my face in the video and you know what I mean. Music is
12 serious business.

14 I noticed just now that the chord progression follows rather closely that one
15 in Mayday's “天使”, a song I’m currently practising. I was
16 asked to play one song on a wedding this Sunday and it will likely be 天使 in
17 an unusual arrangement, blending some of the ideas that shine through the
18 improvisation with the lyrics of that song. I'm expecting to have enough time
19 on Saturday or Monday evening to record it and put it on display here.

26 I offer this video for download in several formats. Choose one from the list
27 below. When you do not want to care about codecs, [download the free VLC
28 player](http://videolan.org). If you are on Linux `mplayer` will work fine,
29 too.
