Also, I am sure you will want to let us listen to more of your music in the future, so if you want to know how to post it here like I have done say, just PM me and I can walk you through it..

Like I said in the first place " it was just an Idea"


Did you not see his previous post where he explained? He doesn't have the software to convert midi to mp 3and youtube will not host midi files.

The software is gettable free SJoe. See previous post for the word "IF" "if you would like to know how to do it" a thought for the future, an offer of a free walkthrough. Optional. just an idea.
To be taken or left. etc. Awesome, as has also been said. lol.

Re Quicktime:
So installing Quicktime 7 on top of the current installation of Quicktime 10 doesn't mess things up? When I tried to play the MIDI my Mac offered to install Quicktime 7.whatever but I abstained, having had problems in the past as a result of "downgrading".

Rostosky, I do still entirely agree with your bout not wanting to download indiscriminately, though for me it's really a housekeeping issue. I always forget to throw such items away after listening, so my downloads folder soon gets clogged with all sorts of opaquely-named files, and clearing it out becomes a long slog of viewing/listening to each one to figure out wtf it is and whether I want to keep it.

I totally understand Tangle weeds, my point was that I genuuinly believe Dazzie2 would get many MORE views having it directly on the thread, so folk could just click and play.
I was basing this of previous conversations, posts, pms where folk have said they are put off if taken to a download OR, what they think is a download..

I was hoping to increase the amount of views.

I also have a pc full of extraneous stuff if I am not carefull!!! lol.

Clicking on a link has never caused me any inconvenience, nor have I ever had any problem opening a MIDI file without downloading it.

Your ability to facilitate "ease of listening" does not concern me in the least. It is your ability to ignore information which is contained in MIDI files which concerns me, and it concerns me very much.

49 posts and you appoint yourself ABF grammer policeman?

There are rules for ending sentences on a preposition, I followed them.

If I was you, I would be much more concerned about early retirement from the grammer police on mental health grounds.

Dazzie2, you have been playing for five months and learned that by ear no less. Based on that, I'd say, your performance was excellent. You are definitely well on your way to becoming an wonderful pianist. thumb

I have not said one word about your grammar, nor have you succeeded in demonstrating that I have a mental health problem.

As the above quote shows, you quoted me and then wrote out my sentence again yourself and added the word "do" at the end of it.

Thus trying to correct grammer that was not incorrect in the first place, If you cannot remember doing that, let me help:
It was yesterday.
Demonstration over.

Dazzie2,
I am glad to hear that you wanted to upload to Youtube in the first place.
I thought this might be the case, and am more than willing to help. If you pm me I will be more than happy to walk you through the process.
The "added" benefits are great, you get to see how many views you have had, and where those views are in the world.

By the way, I liked your playing and its allways nerve racking to put your first attempt for public viewing, well done.

what sort of DP did you play it on?

I cannot remember doing that because it never happened. What happened is that I duplicated your thought in my own words. However, now that you have brought up the subject of your grammar, I probably should mention that although I do not recall seeing you make any grammatical errors, you do make a large number of spelling errors. I can show you those errors if you like.

Since you obviously value the process very highly, why are you wanting to keep it a top secret?

Thank you for finally commenting upon Dazzie's playing. I myself have already commented, though I have to disagree with you about the "nerve racking" issue. I personally know of no legitimate reason why a first posting should be nerve-racking. On the other hand, I think that this discussion, in-itself, is an outstanding example of how a first-posting can certainly be made to be nerve-racking.

I presume that you are referring to a Digital Piano.

There is no apology. There is only your own increasingly irrational behavior, which does not hurt me in the least. In a previous post, you suggested that I had a mental health problem. Now you seem intent upon demonstrating that you yourself have a mental health problem.

There is no need to keep apologising Mike, really. I have accepted your apology, and am prepared to put it all in the past.
To keep on apologising may make you sound not too genuine.

Have you filled in the form allready? that was quick!! I only sent you the link just over an hour ago.
Anytime would have done, there was no rush.

Mike, now that we are best friends again, and seeing as you have been kind enough to invite me to the party you are having, May I just take this opportunity as your friend to mention How much I too love the words "demonstrating" "demonstrated"

I am not quite as fond of them as you are, I have, to my shame, only used them 16 times in my whole life, and do admit to also using the words "showed" and "exhibited" "manifested" "displayed" as alternative vocabulary..
Allthough I personally would not think of using this word in every post I did ,

Would you mind awfully if I too used the demonstrating word in other posts? I would credit you every time I used it and would not try and make out I thought of it first or anything like that.

Anyways, I fully expect you will be busy making your own gestures of good will towards me, and I have therefore posted this picture for you to enjoy in the meantime.

This is a picture of me watching telly when I have mental health depression with arguing on the internet with folk that have just joined a forum and got arsey.

I hope you notice that I had to go to the trouble of turning the telly on its side so I could see it, lifting tellys is not easy with depression.
