Okay, it is hard, very much so smile But yesterday, I watched this video with a young lady playing Chopin on the guitar, and suddenly, the piano seemed quiet friendly. I thought this could cheer up a bit the poor beginners like me who sometimes think they will never ever manage to get this beautiful 88 toothed beast to behave smile http://vimeo.com/59386284 (there seems to be no tags for vimeo, so for those who might be curious)

Keysting, they are more videos of classical guitar on this site: http://www.gitaarsalon.nl/GitaarSalon/HOME_1.html (if you click on TV). I hope posting the link is okay and won't be seen as spamming, it's a cultural site and they sell nothing) smile

As long as you aren't advertising some marketing site, links to other websites are not a problem. smile

A violinist once said to me:

Quote:
Piano is _easy_! You press a button, and a note comes out.

Violin -- now _that's_ hard!
