You should be scared! That piano will give you the "rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu"... :mrgreen:

Lullabies, perhaps? (If you're trying to put yourself to sleep.)

Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all

Wasn't sure whether to post this here, or in the 'dream piano' thread....

I've been seeing this piano all over Facebook lately. It's unusual but also a little bit of a dream piano for me because then I could play piano while smelling all the lovely fragrance. Maybe pieces like Daisies, Lilacs, hmmmm what else...? But then after a few days the flowers would wilt, turn brown, sometimes a little slimy too. Then what would you play?

It's a player piano-violin. You really can play ensemble music by yourself! :idea: :wink:

While I have no doubt this "instrument" would sound much better than a midi violin (or in this case a group of midi violins playing together), I don't think they could effectively do pizzicato, stops or vibrato :lol:
