I play piano. For the future, posts like this should go in Off Topic. Why? Cause it doesn't relate to computers at all.

Just noticed you're from Rochester. w3rd, I'm gonna be there next Fall.

I know some paino/keyboards, I've played guitar and bass for almost a decade now no longer seriously though, and I know minimal music theory about enough to payt attention when a conversation is going on about the subject.

I play guitar, mostly metal type stuff. I'm very much into John Petrucci (Dream Theater), or attempt to play anyway. Just curious guys, thanks.

Michael Romeo is pretty quick, and clean. I respect him much. I have 45 min or so of his instructional on mpeg. Not sure what one (if he has more than one). I could never get into Sym X. I'm not sure why. I have a couple of discs but I suspect I'm very DT/LTE/Petrucci minded that I tend to be a bit narrow minded.
Can you play any of Romeo's licks? He's fast!!!!

I play guitar, write some music also. I'm really in to more chill acousticy stuff, like Radiohead (even though they have some harder stuff), Coldplay, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson and some harder stuff like lot's of punk rock, Pedro the Lion and tons of other stuff.

i listned to DT before but it got boring, too much rock and no neoclassical.

I played the piano for a while, but when I hit eigth grade I decided it wasn't "the cool thing to do." so i quit. and now (like 5 years later) i'm just starting to get into it again. It's so irritating trying to play something that I know I used to be able to play perfectyl and screwin up like mad. by the way, anybody know a website where i could get some free metallica or other rock sheet music translated to piano?

Re: Musicians - 03/14/03 06:50 PM

drake, i don't think you'll be able to find anything quite like what your asking, however...Find a book that shows you the names of guitar strings and what note is on each fret. Then go to one of the many many sites that has guitar tabs. Print off some tabs and transpose it to play on the piano. You won't really need to do much since the piano and guitar are on the same clef, you'll just need to figured out whether it's a high D or a low D, etc. You'll probably even be able to play chords on the piano too. It's not hard really; I transposed the intro to "Enter Sandman" to play on my cello and the cello is played in bass clef.

Re: Musicians - 03/31/03 09:44 PM

I downloaded all 4 Apocalyptica CDs. The term for "putting metallica to piano" is arrangement. Search google for arrangements of metallica put to piano. I'm sure there's some out there.

SR, which do you have? I have "Plays Metallica by 4 Cellos" and "Inquisition Symphony". The only store that even sells them here is Borders. btw, shh! I'm trying to get him to learn something!

Re: Musicians - 04/01/03 04:43 PM

me! learn something! ha, i scoff at the notion. but seriously, one of my friends has a a book wiht all the basics of guitar which include what note is on what string and fret and I'm going to borrow it from him as soon as i can.
