Gershwin did not need to arrange songs. He was a song plugger early in his career. He could rearrange his songs as he played them. That was a requirement for the job.

Have a great time through-walking the AT. I've got a coworker here who did 30 days on the PCT last September (starting up north and working his way South.) I personally do a lot of hiking/backpacking, but I'm not a long-distance walker.

Sometimes if my connection is bad I'll use my phone (4G) and tether it to my Macbook. I could Skype directly on my smartphone, but I find the screen to be too small and Skype for android isn't as good as the laptop version.

I had the same problem with my Clavinova. So I dropped the USB connection and I use MIDI instead. No more problems. Does the VPC1 have MIDI? Or only USB?

So you are saying that Gershwin only arranged 18 of the songs himself for piano? What about the other songs? So any of those other books I buy will just be arranged by someone else most likely?

Testing was certainly done, but I wonder what tonal result can be expected by balancing the keys with some front weight plus weight at the back. Sure the keys may flex more, but can it send more power to the whippen/hammer, ue to more mass ? I have

I dont know if much people have pianos on their minds, due to the space needed, the weight (iron frame, toxic lead) that may be somewhat impractical an heavy. Only piano technicians are trained to do so ... We are somewhat special, I agree.
