When you go to play a piano, and you begin to stare at the keys, what do you do? Do you play the white keys? or are you so bold as to play the Black ones? It's the Black keys that are the ones less played. It's the Black keys that create the minor cords. It's also the Black keys that are too sharp or they're the ones that create the sound throughout the musical piece, that make you want to plug your ears.
Black keys are brave. Black keys are dark and secretive. Black keys live in lonely solitude until, someone comes along to play them. They are the Mozart Requiem, the Beethoven Symphony .5. They are the hidden tune behind Edgar Allen Poe and Emily Dickinson. They are the stories of the Songs of Heaven and Hell. They are songs to the meaning of destruction, misery, and this world. Always played in minor chords.
What do you think?
Do you still want to play them?
Do you want to leave them alone?
