havn't been in the mood for playing piano lately and now when I felt like playing again my printer broke...
I'm not so good at playing by ear on harder songs, and i don't feel like playing easier songs

I'm working my way through Chopin's Scherzo No. 2. Just a little something to help me unwind during finals week. It's actually not as hard as I thought it would be, then I agian the last time I looked at the music I had only just taken up the piano.

Age Of Empires II Menu Theme and Still Alive.

Those, as well of a bunch of other songs I got halfway into before I went into service.

Yes, I'm still around from time to time. For quicker response, you can reach me by PM, or drop by Smogon to say hi. I go by "Codraroll" there, because of a bet.

Right now I'm trying to figure out Fur Elise. Kinda hard. Skipping around a bit. I love this one part where, in the left hand, you have to use 3 fingers on this one note... And when you stress the whole song, it sounds so moving... Well, what are you people learning?

Lol I HATE that song because A. it is SO EASY (no offense, you probably haven't been playing so long) and B. it is SO OVERPLAYED xD

I finished with the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows piano solo book by Alexandre Desplat which consisted of:
"Obliviate"
"Snape to Malfoy Manor"
"Polyjuice Potion"
"At the Burrow"
"Harry and Ginny"
"Ron Leaves"
"Godric's Hollow Graveyard"
"Ron's Speech"
"Lovegood"
"Farewell to Dobby"

Also working on Polonaisse by Chopin and Pineapple Rag as a two piano duet by Joplin.

The King's Speech - Main theme from the movie (Desplat)

I will have to look that up because I loved Desplat's work on Deathly Hallows.

Offense not taken, because you're right... XD I'm a bit green.  :-[
Pineapple rag? I learned that song recently, (but it's most likely an easier version) and I really like Joplin!  ;D

I agree with the fact the Fur Elise is overplayed; that's why I play it in my own idiom, usually only barely playing from the orginal score.

Hmm.
Debussy's "Pour le Piano", Chopin's Nocturne in C Minor, Ginastera's "Danzas Argentinas", Lizst's "Waldesrauschen", and The SMW athletic theme.

The last one is practically the hardest  :P

gregory which nocturne?  I've played the op 48 no 1 before. 

I'm playing Chopin's concerto 1, black key etude, rachmaninov's prelude in g-sharp minor, and some sightreading on Beethoven Pathetique and Pastoral sonatas.  I like sonatas with names :)

Well, I was going Waltz Fantasy for this Clarinet Solo thing, except it's ridiculously easy.  But then again, I'm terrible at Clarinet anyways, so FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.


I am obviously not music savvy. :(
