Key word "insanely hard" yes I agree it is insane to work this hard on jazz.

I am not making fun of you or anyone on a personal level, I am expressing my Legitimate right to hate jazz.

I have the right to hate it do I not?

I have the right to express that , its called FREE SPEECH!

Or are you against free speech?

Didnt you ever hear any one say "I have a dream?"

Well, I too have a dream, I have a dream and in that dream, there is a world where I dont ever get to hear jazz, not on telly, not on the radio, not in pubs, and not in supermarkets when I am shopping.

I am entitled to my dream.

Klinkklonk, I did answer your question, but all those nights in dark jazz clubs may have affected your eyesight, so I have made the answer bold for you to see it more easily.

How do you know how far my "issues" go?
Have you been peeping through my bedroom window again?

"If its good enough for the president its good enough for you?"

We dont all bow and scrape to some USA president in the UK, neither do we believe a word they say, puppets all of them.

Understood now Becca, sock puppet.

I agree with her, jazz is indeed nothing but sole.

Like I said, the dude's got issues. Real musicians don't denigrate certain styles because they don't like it. I like some and don't like others but don't go around bashing any. To spend years perfecting a craft and showing emotional honesty, that's something the Rosto dude knows nothing about.

Absolutely untrue, your arrogance is ruling your logic, there are many many "Real musicians" here on these forums, and many have often said they cannot stand "house" or "dubstep" Or "rave" type music in general.

To some it gives them a pain in the head, and they are not frightened of saying so, this is because they are allowed free speech, something you are singularly failing to grasp, Do you come from a communist country? where you born under Stalins regime?

"real musicians" hold many differing views on many many different genres of music and often state those views.

Dude you would be well advised not to presume you have the right to determine who is or who is not a "real musician" especially here on these threads.

What exactly qualifies you to be a "real musician"? Do you teach, perform, sing, offer your services to a church, charity or religious group, made someone smile or cry with your music, play from the heart?

I seriously wonder how much effort you've spent practicing or even playing. You've got a video showing endless track loops synced to a train where a computer did all the work.

I mean do you even play the piano?!!

All the stuff you write doesn't even have any musical relevance. You can't even get the proper jazz terminology correct. What I presume about you has indeed proven to be right.

Here's exhibit A: Rosto hijacking a thread and insulting the poster simply because it's "jazz".

www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1923893/Re:%20How%20To%20Get%20Started%20Learnin.html#Post1923893

This isn't merely exercising your free speech about not liking jazz. This is a deliberate attempt to undermine a musician on this forum who is trying to help others learn jazz with some free advice.

So tell me again Rosto, are you a real musician or not?

None of the above makes anyone a "real musician" by default. A "real musician" will make music Regardless of the above, because they have to, they cannot help it, they do it anyway, they know nothing else.

But, I could not say what makes someone a "real musician", I will leave that to you, but again be warned, on these forums you will be treading a dangerous path.



Computers do not "make music " my friend, people do, This statement shows you have no inkling of the work involved, I suggest you do not go over to the DP part of the forums and state that particular view unless you want to be laughed at mercilessly.

Rosto it's quite clear you aren't even a wannabe musician, let alone a real musician.

Wizenedmump, just state your definition of what a "real musician" is and then state your definition of what a "wannabe musician" is, right here for the record,

And then I can go away back to tending my horse fly bite safe in the knowledge that you have shot yourself in the foot publicly.

Best you quit now and change course, lest you contract the deadly "jazzitis" disease. Wait I think you may have it and there is no cure!! except for a full immersion 24/7 starting from Art Tatum, the Marsalis' King Keith Jarrett, Hippy Herbie Hancock and the Ol' Oscar Peterson. Throw in the Prince of Miles Davis and Smooth Bill Evans.

Only then will your immune system learn to suppress the power that is jazz.

Post a video of your best playing and we'll have a vote to see if you are a real musician or not. Proof is in the pudding as they say. You game or you scared? Man up.

Anyways, stop Pm ing me with offers of tickets, I am washing my hair this Tuesday and cannot go to Ronnie scots with you,wednesday I am busy too.

Friday is out because I have to mind the cat for an auntie.

saturday and sunday I am mowing the lawn and doing gardening for an elderly lady who is deserving because she pays well.

have you got the message yet? I am not interested in going out with you.

Jeez.

Answer these questions. When was the last time you:

-performed for an audience
-wrote a composition or improvisation
-taught a student
-shared your music
-played with a child-like mind
-got excited discovering a new artist
-supported and saw live music
-listened and tried to learn something from a better musician

From your answers we'll see if you are a real musician or not. I'll be expecting them promptly.

have you heard of youtube dude? Some pretty damn good playing there. Who's "EVERYONE". Speak for yourself dude. Just cause you suck when the camera's on doesn't mean other people do.

Ok, show me a video of your worst playing then. And no computer sync overdub 5 track song. Just you and the piano. If you can't even do that then what exactly are you doing on a piano forum.
