Nope, I am not, however my better half is (still) less advanced at the piano. I have no doubt however she will catch up soon and leave me far behind .

Only a qualified restoration expert could tell you if it even possible or worth the cost to bring your piano up to snuff. Uprights of this age are 95%+ useless as a piano and hold value mostly for sentimental reasons. The exception to this is those

I took the first two weeks of this course. It was easy to follow and interesting. The teacher's mucical style wasn't really to my personal taste, so I quit, but don't let that put people off trying.

When you record, the waveform is shown in audacity as pleasant looking pine forest with trees at varying heights according to the volume you play. . . I might have to do a bit of editing to accentuate this effect a bit more if I can't find a solution
