blahhhh....I hate overly sentimental things. I bet that piano plays the theme from "Love Story" too. Yuck!
Riley, you made me wonder what a hear-shaped piano would look like, so I just made one....

You don't like overly sentimental things... I think I remember you saying that on some thread. Sorry, I forgot.. :oops:

Thanks! Cool.

The piano on the right... I've never seen a piano that faces that direction! It reminds me of an apple watch that had the hands moving counterclockwise instead of clockwise. On it read, "think different." 8)

Yes, a pair of breifs to be sure :wink:

I flipped the image and then pasted it next to the other piano. Fun with Photoshop... :wink:

It's Friday - that means I'm goofing off. :wink:

Found this on Ebay by another company, but this link works better. It's for CD's that teach you to play piano better using subliminal messages. Pretty ridiculous, isn't it? Or is it? Anyone ever try anything like this before? I'm game....maybe....What harm could it do?

Interesting concept. But to what extent can hypnosis help one... learn an instrument. Practice is proven, but hypnosis?! Hypnosis is an interesting topic. The imperius spell was an unforgivable curse in Harry Potter and could allow one wizard to hypnotize the other and make him or her do anything. But that's in a magical world created by J.K Rowling...

It would be interesting to try the CD out, but to answer your question, what harm could it do? You might waste $15.97 :lol: Then again, I haven't tried it. I doubt it would cause any health problems, I don't know. :|

EDIT: also there doesn't seem to be anything different from the learn piano page to the learn guitar page or the violin page..

but piano is a totally different instrument than either the violin or guitar? I don't get it? I guess once your hypnotized into playing one instrument you will be able to play all of them! 8)

Well, that surely proves it's a fraud. Few things can be more different to learn than piano and violin (my greatest respect goes to the very few people who master both, like Julia Fischer).
