So Addicted... both the show and the music. So addicted that I spent a giftcard, usually jealously hoarded to spend on books, on the Season 2 series (gulp!) instead of waiting for it to stream free on Netflix.

Love Maggie Smith. What a hoot she is!

I want try to learn to play this theme and really liked the version above on YouTube. [There's also a tutorial version here]. I have only a total of about 20 hours of beginner piano lessons under my belt so I don't know if I will ever achieve this aspiration but I have done other crazy things like this before, so who knows? :)

ETA March 6: When played slowly, I can manage the first 3.5 bars! So excited!
ETA March 12: Aaaaaaargh! (stuck at measure 20+)


  1. Good grief! Are we twins separated at birth? I love Downton Abbey, too. And I would have the same inclination to try try to play the song, with about as many lessons. :)

  2. Go for it - I'm positive you can do it!

    I really must watch that show - everyone seems to like it. If it follows my usual pattern, I'll watch it in about 10 years when everyone else has forgotten it :)

  3. We love the show here. I bought the whole second season on iTunes just so I could watch it over and over again.
