    Hi I did my Grade 8 Guildhall examination in piano on the 16th of June. That's as far as I planned to go with piano. Evenso, I was wondering whether I could join your society. I am also interested in guitar and might just as well start it as I'm sure it would be a great replacement for all that free time I have now that I don't practice as much.

    I play piano, keyboard and drums. And used to play recorder, as we all did!

    Own a grand piano, portable keyboard, and a digital drumkit. (I work for Yamaha, big discounts )
    And 2 plastic recorders I think!
    Can I join?? I'm not on the list yet! :bawling:

    If you're doing humour, here's one for the guitarists:

    Subject: Re: Guitar Cords
    From: Giri

    Plug one end into your guitar and one end into the amp. That's it. As you become a more advanced player, you'll want to get into cord theory, which tells you *which* end goes where. Jazz cords have kinks in them. Power cords are very fat. Suspended cords should hang between your guitar and amp without touching the ground (also known as catenary cords). If you're using effects pedals, you'll have to stack cords. Very short cords are called diminished and very long ones are called augmented. Then there's cord substitution, which I won't even get into. If your major cord (the one you always use) is too short, you can use cord extensions. Some folks (like SRV) used several amps and hence had to use polycords. Drummers are not considered musicians because they don't use cords.

    Giri
    Can I join, btw? Diploma piano (advanced cert accompaniment too), diploma flute, piccolo, electric and acoustic guitars (but played very badly), a bit of drumming here and there - I'm more than a little obsessed with music, does it show?
