    I must have replaced them about 6/7 years ago, but I'm pretty sure I replaced them with genuine Fender Strat ones I bought on an ebay auction for £40 (I think anyways). I think that was the first time I bought 'super slinky' steel strings as well (I highly recommend)
    They're very cool aren't they?
    ahh, I get totally different stings lool
    they actually specify how un-slinky they are lmao

    Name your instrument and mention if there are any pieces you'd like to be able to play. Perhaps mention how far off you are from that goal.

    For me, the pieces I'd like to be able to play are
    Chopin's Ballade in G minor
    Chopin's Nocturne in C minor
    Chopin's Etude in A minor (op 25 no 11)
    Chopin's "Black Key" Etude
    Chopin's "Wrong note" Etude
    Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor
    Bach's Partita no 6 in E minor
    Rachmaninoff's piano concerto no 2
    Mozart's piano concerto no 20

    There are other pieces but these are the ones I definitely would like to play. I'm currently still learning. Probably at least 10 years off but I do plan to give a reasonable performance of each some day.
    I'm currently learning Rachmaninov's piano sonata No.2 and Chopin's Concerto no. 1.

    I did Rain Tree Sketch II back when I was 14, would like to learn the first one at some point.

    Composing a piano concerto of my own at the moment. I rarely perform my own pieces, but it might be nice to learn it when it's done.

    Have you tried? It's easier than it sounds. There are some big stretches in the bass but other than that it's definitely doable.

    Not yet, have been looking at some videos for the keys, but haven't had access to a piano for a couple of weeks to try playing it lol! Thanks, though, I'm happy to hear it is a manageable piece

    So you play the drums now?

    Piano here

    I'd love to play the Waldstein sonata (Beethoven's Number 21 in C major) at full speed. Can currently play it at about half. Hoping to have it cracked by the end of the year, but it's the toughest piece I've ever tried to crack.
    Nice piece. Are you diploma standard?

    On Piano? Flight of the bumble bee...swan lake (will learn it when I have the time) but really I think I already have a fairly large repertoire....
    Nice. What sort of music do you and can you play atm?

    (Original post by aymanzayedmannan)
    On guitar,

    Für Elise
    Flight of the Bumblebee (I've learnt it but I can't play it at 220 BPM lol)
    For the Love of God - Steve Vai
    Satch Boogie - Joe Satriani
    Evil Eye - Yngwie Malmsteen
    Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson
    ...and a bunch of other stuff that doesn't spring to mind

    Easy to learn, but insane to perfect! Ritchie Blackmore is a beast.
    Metallica? DX
    How far are you off from learning the pieces?

    (Original post by furryface12)
    On flute, Suite Antique by Rutter I've been able to play it all except the last couple of bars for several years which is really annoying! Bach's Sonata G Minor I can play on sax but would be really nice on flute, isn't particularly hard I just need to get round to doing it. Godard's Waltz (can't remember what it's actually from) I can play but not particularly well or up to speed. That and stuff like Moto Perpetuo and Flight of the Bumblebee a lot faster just because they sound cool, flight of the bumblebee I'm pretty good on though- it's all just chromatic. They're not actually that nice but whatever :lol:

    In general I really need to get back into playing both instruments and listening to stuff again so any suggestions are welcome!
    You're so amazing . I think you should learn the flute arrangement of the Paganini Caprice No.24

    I plan to learn it when I have the skill but it's not a piece I love.

    Look at you . That's lovely.

    I'd like to do more composition after my exams and have pianists perform them for my YT channel but I doubt I'll ever do something as grand as a concerto. Did you study formally?

    Guildhall, Purcell, then Chets

    I'm looking at doing another course - the last couple of years have been great for me - when I left school, I went straight onto an audio production course which, while it wasn't composition, the university had a strong film department which let me into some good opportunities and competitions as a film composer, along with expanding a more technical repertoire in terms of mixing and mastering. Now, I want to look back into specialising in music for film for an MA, so will probably go back to Guildhall, or perhaps RAM. RCM don't appear to offer the right course, which is a shame since that's where most of my contacts lie.

    I have a fairly endless network of pianists :P If you want to PM, then I could look into putting you in touch with some (although I can't promise anything until i've seen your work and put it through to them).
