Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino

How Often Should You Tune your Piano? It is a popular idea that you need to tune your piano twice in the year. That has become the standard that is required to have a piano playing well. Most piano tutorial or any form of online piano lesson that you might have taken will probably have told you that you need to tune your piano two times every year. However it is now generally believed that a piano needs to be tuned four times in the year that is once during each of the four seasons. Now tuning a piano quarterly might seem like a daunting task but it will be worth it in the long run if you want to have a playing piano in perfect condition. This is because as your piano tutorial must have taught you a piano is basically a stringed instrument and like all other stringed instruments it has a tendency to stray off pitch. (More...)

About the Artist
Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino Jr. (born February 26, 1928) is an American R&B and rock and roll pianist and singer-songwriter. He was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Domino first attracted national attention with "The Fat Man" in 1949 on Imperial Records. This song is an early rock and roll record, featuring a rolling piano and Domino doing "wah-wah" vocalizing over a strong back beat. It sold over a million copies and is widely regarded as the first rock and roll record to do so. Fats Domino released a series of hit songs with producer and co-writer Dave Bartholomew, saxophonists Herbert Hardesty and Alvin "Red" Tyler and drummer Earl Palmer. Other notable and long-standing musicians in Domino's band were saxophonists Reggie Houston, Lee Allen, and Fred Kemp, Domino's trusted bandleader. Domino finally crossed into the pop mainstream with "Ain't That a Shame" (1955), which hit the Top Ten, though Pat Boone characteristically hit #1 with a milder cover of the song that received wider radio airplay in a racially-segregated era. Domino eventually had 37 Top 40 singles.
