  • Any pianists?

    I had lessons when I was a lot younger up until grade 2 where I decided to quit due to time constraints I still play all the time now though.

    Anyone else play? What kind of music do you like playing? Got a particularly favorite song to play ?

    I play the piano, but I am not good at it. Learned from my sister who is good at it. I felt the guitar was more my thing.

      So, when you were in 2nd grade, you had alot of 'time constraints,' eh?

      Did you have a job or something? o_O;

            Hehe indeed, it's a classification system for music examinations. It goes from Grade1 upwards to I think around Grade8/10

              I played piano for about five years, but I never truely got into it, and I'm sad to say that I can play remarkably bad for all the lessons I took...

                Yep, I play piano. Started when I was 8 years old, if I recall correctly. Passed the Royal Conservatory of Music's teacher certification exam when I was 13, but haven't played much since about five years ago.

                Last time I've really played piano was about 1.5 months ago, when I just sat down in a piano lounge and played for about 3 hours non-stop. Until my friend told me that I was there for 3 hours, in which case I was totally shocked and immediatedly left.

                  Theme songs to old NES games, and other typical piano songs that you might expect.

                  Moonlight Sonata gets the ladies. Golliwogs Cakewalk is fun to play.

                      That is the coolest thing I've ever heard! I would love to have that ability.

                      One of my favorite things to do when I was back in NY was to go to the park and find a musician playing and just hang out.

                      My wife has piano players in her family, teachers in fact. They want my kids to play. However they are 1200 miles away. I think I'm gonna get the phone book out.

                        I used to play a lot when I was younger, formal lessons etc., but never had much motivation to continue. I stopped for quite a few years, and picked up guitar and now I play that as my main instrument. However, a couple of years ago I played around on the piano and realized because of what I had learned with guitar, I could write songs on piano, and that's what I do a lot of now.

                        So do I have a favorite song to play? Not really, I don't play much of other people's music (on piano), but I love to write songs on it and just play for fun.

                              I started playing the piano at around 11 years old. Played all through high school, and then got paid to play when I was 18/19 (was in a band). I also know how to play the organ.

                              I also started playing the guitar when I was 10. Same as the piano, played all throughout high school, and then got paid ot play (in the band). I know how to play acoustic, electric and bass guitar.

                              I don't play either much anymore though (I don't own a piano or a keyboard anymore -- and my electric guitar needs new wiring - just haven't gotten around to tearing it apart) -- its a '67 Les Paul -- and my acoustic needs a couple new frets).
