(well this is very very strange! Almost as strange as "The Twilight Zone"! I am always logged onto this forum--i.e. the computer remembers my SN and password-- but whenever I opened it up the forum was dead, i.e. no posts no activity. But that is impossible since I was posting messages and submitting records and it always showed when I clicked on the specific thread--not when I clicked "new topics since lost login". I was posting but no one else was active, it seemed that I was the last person alive! But it was fixed when I logged off and signed back on. Was it just a glich? Or was I in another parallel dimension? :lol: ) Anyways, let's see if this will work. I am submitting my second composition for the Piano. It was recorded on Thursday on a 1920 something Concord Upright. Unfortunately this is the best piano my school has to offer for the students to use. (There is however a nice Steinway 6-foot 8-inch piano on the top floor of the main building but this floor is reserved for the Big-Shots for the Universities--Deans, President, Provost, etc.) But for us, students, we get to use pianos that are tuned every 30 years and replaced every 100 years. :wink: (litte off but you get the point). Secondly, my edirol seems to be misbehaving. It records as usual, but when I upload it to the computer it is very very very very very quiet! I positioned the edirol close to the piano and I turned up the input volume as high as possible without "peaking-out". With all this in mind, please try to get passed how damn quiet it is, and how crappy our pianos are at our univeristy (which finds a way to pay the head basketball coach $1.2 million dollars a year so he can coach a team that never makes it to the playoffs. And an University which says that it cannot afford to replace the old-worn-out pianos--six of them. ) So with all pleasure I submit a piano piece in the style of a nocturne, however I really don't know what the hell it is called. I also don't know how to expand the ideas. Bear with the minor errors, (that is, if you can hear this) regards, -jg EDIT: THE SOUND IS OK!!!! DO NOT TURN YOUR SPEAKERS UP!!!!!
