Piano

I bought a piano. I am exhausted. It was hard to handle. However it is now done, as proof here is me, tickling the synthetic ivory substitute:



I fucked up a bit but to say I haven't touched a piano for several years I thought I did OK. Shortly will follow a tune recorded internally so you can here the sound quality LOLOLOLOL

ETA: HERE IS A TUNE LOLOL



That is called "Hey!". The first one is called "Funky Tune". Yes, I title my song excellently. By the way, Hey! once had lyrics but that are lost and gone forever.

Anyway, I like the quality of the rendering to 16-bit WAV, there is no distortion of any of that cheap stuff. I am happy. Now to order take away, because I can't get in my kitchen because of all the packaging.

I did more playing yay. I found that I can still just about stumble through some of my Grade 8 era pieces, which I wasn't expecting to. They are still blimmin hard, of course. I played a bit of Mozart and a bit of Beverley Craven. She is not a Grade 8 piece. But she has some great chords. I accidentally keep turning Mozart into the blues by doing flattened fifths when I'm not meaning to which sounds wicked amaze, he would approve no doubt. I played what I could remember of the Romeo and Juliet score I wrote for sixth form which is not a lot but luckily I have it all on MIDI somewhere.

The sustain pedal simulates a proper grand "analogue" one where you get more sustain the more you press it, whereas I think on a typical upright it's more of a binary on-off thing. This means I can now use the pedal with Mozart which before just sounded messy and horrid. So that is great. I played a bit of Sonata 12 in F and did sound kinda like Mitsuko Uchida, no really I did.
