A Grand Piano - My Dream Come True

Alicia and I got our Yamaha 5'7" G2 Grand Piano yesterday!!! Can you believe it? I am so excited...I absolutely love playing the piano!

The only thing I am bummed about is that I didn't get a piano sooner! :) My hands are so rusty...songs that I could just fly through before I can't even stagger or limp through now.

Last night I played until my fingers and lower back were sore, but it was a good soreness. If anyone has some ideas of some good piano books, please let me know in a comment. I just ordered "Dan Coates Complete / Advanced Piano Solos" and "Blues Piano: Hal Leonard Keyboard Style Series". I already have a couple of Dan Coates books and really love his arrangements. I figure that his complete book probably has a lot of the same songs that I have now, but there should be some additional ones in there.
