    Meaning....have you sight-read through a piece for the first time and discovered that you really love it and you can't wait to be at the point where you've played through it enough times that it's starting to flow almost like how it is supposed to go? (sorry, long sentence there)
    Anyway, I'm glad I play piano because I so much enjoy learning about a piece that I didn't know before, but now know that I'm going to love after reading through it. It really ignites my enthusiasm for playing piano....like it's a big thrill albeit a small one...but well, it just kinda makes me happy! :D

    Anyone else have moments like this?

    All the time.
    Also the converse - hearing something that I really like and want to play, and then losing interest
    during the first play through. These are exceptions though. More often it's superseded by something
    else that comes along. So my stack of A4's keeps growing at an alarming rate.

    They do not have A4s in the States, Chris... They use legal format paper, which is just as wide but somewhat longer.

    A4 is a measurement of paper. It is the standard used in most of Europe. If you examine your "print" options or your page setup in Word or whatever you use you will see it.

    Thanks for the explanation, Richard. I have never heard of that size paper. Here in the US we have generally two kinds of page sizes: The most common is 8 1/2 by 11, but we don't have a name for it like A4.

    Some people like to cut down Americans for not knowing about some things in other countries. :wink:
