I recorded it earlier today (21st). First time I've played it in a long time. It's a little bit sloppy in some parts, I think I missed a note in one part (or two) and my eyes read too far ahead in one part and I hit the wrong note in the bass (it's a few seconds before before the piece returns to its original theme, and is pretty obvious). Other than that though it isn't too bad. \:D

Enjoy! I'll try to get a better recording of it up later. (Then again, I said that about the last thing I uploaded too. lol).

Honest feedback politely requested but not required. \:\)

Well done!

I listened to both pieces found on the link-page.

They were a joy to listen to. (Both pieces are new to me.) Especially the raindrop prelude I think you played musically, and the dynamics (soft notes) are also well done.

That was indeed lovely! How long have you been playing? (if you say "a year" I'll just crawl under the bed & not come out)

Hahaha, no, not a year. I've been playing since about 1999 and am nearly completely self taught. (My grandfather taught me how to read music [at first I just played by ear] and after I had already been playing for a few years I took a total of about 5 lessons before I quit, and other than that I'm completely self taught).

Thank you for the replies.
