It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
This is a bloke? .....I'll have to reassess some misapprehensions under which I've been wondering for some years now.
I thought he was referring to the furry white creature.......
"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."
To those who did: please don´t molest by your unqualified comments on the person. I feel ashamed of you, especially that she is still a child.
To those of you who have entered this thread in order to hear the sound of a HP-505: as she really catched it nicely, playing so nicely some modern tune, here is also a more classical one of her.
learning Piano on my Roland HP-505 before playing Drums in adults bluesband on handpicked set; before crashing E-Guitar in kids garage band; raised on home entertainment Organ and Keyboard models Eminent Solina P240, Farfisa Maharani 259R, Technics KN800, and on Mouth Organ, Recorder and Accordion

what a great picture. thanks for sharing. Your kitty must not like low frequencies.
reminds me of my 15 yr old english cocker (nearly blind, almost deaf, and rarely barks- i probably should rename him "Tommy") lying at my feet whenever i play and usually passing copious amounts of gas. very humbling.

Thanks Gigantoad - yes it is a very curious piece and I did kind of wonder what it was. It's jazzy yet obviously carefully composed. Difficult to imagine as a concert piece or a jazz trio theme, so the video game explanation solves the mystery! Also sounds as if the composer has been listening to Stravinsky's Les Noces.
Final Fantasy has some of the most brilliant music in video game history. Certainly worth listening to even outside of playing the games. The first piece here, I believe, is the battle theme of Final Fantasy 7. So whenever you were in battle, you would hear this. Much faster and more frentic though. Second piece is called "Return to Zanarakand" from Final Fantasy 10 where it was the main theme I think.
Very interesting. I'll listen again later - just now trying to keep few ideas in mind for a guitar thing I'm doing. It's like trying to keep a bag of marbles with a hole in it together, so other music is dangerous at this stage...
I just want to back up that Final Fantasy really does have amazing piano pieces worth checking out! Even though I never played the game.
Also, I have the HP-507 and RD700NX.. My HP sounds just like the HP-505 above - really beautiful sound. The RD700 I have been trying to adjust for weeks and have almost given up getting a sound that even remotely compares to the HP or any other piano sound I really like
Couldn't recommend the HP highly enough
