Welcome to Piano World Hayden. Serious business here. Serious music. In fact, pretty much everything here is serious.

Try being more serious next time and you'll get the response you want. You know, talk about muscle tension in your hands while you play piano - that kind of scintillating stuff. smile

Your 'ploy' (as you yourself call it) has been embarrassingly transparent! It's been awkward to read. I never thought I would feel awkward just reading on an internet forum.

The alternative does not have to be "Could someone please play my songs?". Why not just post them and mention that the scores are available and that you'd be excited to support anyone who would like to play the pieces? You might be surprised at the response, who knows.

Finally, I have a challenge for YOU! Step one: go to your bank. Step two: withdraw 1000 dollars. Step three: send it to me.

C'mon it'll be fun! wink


Get a grip. He doesn't owe anyone an apology. After some of the crap I've read on this forum, if HE owes an apology then there are a LOT of others that do as well.

I didn't like the songs, but I do apreciate the creativity. Keep going, you'll write something nice.

Whatever. Offer incentives. I bet someone would play them for $100.

Yes, this is true. He wasn't exactly welcomed.

He asked politely.
Maybe it's a European vs USA thing, but I hardly found his manner polite. He didn't want us to try his music, but wanted to challenge us, reward us with his choice of the best performer/ance and so on.


I'm American, and I didn't find his manner polite, either. It was more like some pushy in-your-face salesperson that I would just as soon avoid. I didn't even bother to check out those "songs".

And yes, calling them "songs" was enough to put me off. This "composer" doesn't even care enough to understand this venue, so why should I care about the product? I figured if it was really great stuff, I'd hear about it sooner or later in the thread, and overcome my aversion. As it is, I am glad I didn't waste my time. Life is too short.
