I saw this in a Facebook group so had to repost. Wasn't aware this was a thing.

Comes on handy when the tune is in Db.

Pentatonic when the tune is in F#.
Thinking of Irving Berlin and his piano.

Am I the only one who was expecting this thread to be about an accordion cover of "Gold on the Ceiling" or something like that?

Mull of Kintyre is the classic example of a black key tune - less frantic than the example on FB, too!

You know you're out of touch if you have to look that up...reckognized the melody right away when I saw it though. Oh well :lol: .

Not sure why the strap over the white keys? What difference does it make?

That makes it a cover.

I guess it's supposed to demonstrate that he is not using the white keys. Doesn't seem awfully effective, though.

I won't be convinced that there are no white keys in this piece without seeing the score,.

I looked at a few videos of the Mull of Kintyre, they definitely had white keys in there...maybe the song was transposed to a different key?

Now the dude with the red cloth covering all the keys is just showing off...good on him!
