The art of Thornwolf
Thats right, MUSIC!
I used to take piano lessons as a kid but its been 12 years since I've played. keesh has been so kind to let me borrow his keyboard so I can pick up the hobby again. I'm a bit rusty but its been fun teaching myself.

Here's the first of what will eventually be a few songs I felt brave enough to record myself playing :P (I get nervous!) Sorry for the bad camera angle. I'll have to figure that out.

That sounded great! I have no musical ability what so ever so I think that is amazing!

So cool! I always wished I could play piano, but I could never make both hands coordinate well. I've played guitar for almost sixteen years though!

See, I wish I could do /that/. Its so much more portable and social :)

My neighbors I think are fed up with me tinkering at 2 AM.

If the keyboard has a jack for 'em, try using headphones.  They're very useful for quiet practice.

Very nice job on the J. S. Bach minuet, by the way.

Thank you :) And yeah I should look into that. I think I have some headphones that will work. Fortunately I only have one neighbor and there's a yard between us but I have no idea how badly the sound carries.

I didn't know you liked playing piano! You sound really good just picking it up. Good luck and keep practicing!

I wish I had not given up on my piano lessons way back in 3rd grade. I've always loved the instrument and can now only clunk out the most basic of tunes on them.

It sounds pretty good for having retaught yourself :3

Wow. The house Mark and I have moved into has a piano or our enjoyment, and I took lessons when I was pretty young, but never to that exstent. You play BEAUTIFULLY. I'm jealous. What song was that? Its pretty :)

Beautiful! =D I wish I could seriously learn how to play an instrument :P *cries*

I think I'll pick again my keybord and I'll try to compose something simple. I never learnt how to use my left hand and I don't remember how to recognise the timing and certain compositions of notes; I just remember how to recognise their position. =S

All my friends play something, I don't! =(

Nice! Man, it's been years since I've played the piano. You're way better than I am. :D
