Hello fizikisto, At last I know the name of that type of guitar. I was watching a Ben Harper video and my wife asked me what type of guitar he was playing and I had no idea. Now I know. Thank you. Definitely a mellow, laid back sound. Very nice. I

Bravo!! Of course this is a very authoritative playing of this work. I hear three different people playing this sonata in this video. First it starts in a formal sonata form. Just plain playing in strict time without any extra pauses in rests and t

I might go look at it WITH A TECH. Granted, it probably needs work but might get you by.

Your repertoire list looks somewhat odd to me, because the Liszt is quite a few levels harder than the rest - it's way harder than the outer movements of Beethoven's Pathetique, which you haven't played (and which are 'loud'). Is it a simplified vers

Trapwork is just simple levers. You should be able to work something out by looking at other pianos and doing the appropriate calculations, and maybe a little experimentation.

If you really like this particular piano, and can afford it, I say buy it and enjoy it! However, I would suggest having the piano looked at by another qualified piano tech, not associated with the shop. If that upsets them, I'd say thanks but no-than

I never liked the dremel attachment. Perhaps if I practiced with it more, I could get it to function well, but I didn't like that it was off balance and I couldn't see what exactly was coming off--until after the fact. I use razors: it is easy to co
