This is for anyone who wants a good laugh. It's raining here today, my son took my car to school, and I'm stuck at home with nothing to do. So I think, "okay, maybe I'll try recording that Ballade." Hours later, my wrists hurt, and I can't get a mistake-free recording. I know there's a lot of missed notes here, but if you have any ideas besides that, please let me know. Believe it or not, I once played this in front of an audience and it went pretty well. That was a year ago. Also, the audience didn't know what to listen for, so I never got any helpful feedback. I started practicing the Ballade again when I got this Edirol, but it's like starting all over again. Also, I know my tempo is slow in the fast places, but that's probably because I'm tired now. And since the piece is so long, don't feel you have to 'niggle' every section. Anyway, watch out for the last page. That's where the biggest laugh happens. I couldn't hold my tongue or my bad mood any longer.
