I could probably lift to that.
Doc, I'll pass on your comments. Thanks.

Ken - that was amazing. Really enjoyed listening to it. I play Piano myself, although no where near that level. I rebelled against classical music when I was learning and this is one of my regrets. I actually only kept going to lessons because I never had the heart to tell my dad I hated it. However, I can honestly say that now, and probably since I was about 17-18, I appreciate being able to play so much, even at my level, and I feel it's one of the best things my Dad could of done for me.

I'm the same, I was sent off to piano lessons when I was a kid and hated it, didn't like classical music at all.

Looking back I'm so glad they did it, gave me the understanding of music I have now and these days I can play piano, guitar, mandolins and even synthesisers.

I want to announce the organizational meeting of the ExRx Symphony. We'll take any instrument you may play. My first time through college I was a music major, intending to become a conductor. So, I'm in charge! :)
