Classical Music Is Good, Yo

Did I ever mention that I am a classically-trained pianist?

Well I'm not. I'm a self-taught pianist, and today is part one (of an undetermined number of parts) in Classical Music I Used To Be Able To Play On the Piano (But Have Now Forgotten).

Let's start with what is probably the most well-known piece - "Fur Elise" by Ludwig Van Beethoven.

I'm also going to do Songs You've Heard Before But Just Didn't Know What They Were Called. First up - Boccherini's "Minuet".

Thanks, Hwg. Those pieces have nicely cleared out the awful screeching, scratching, caterwalling, carooning, and copacabanning of this week's American Idol contestants.

Dude, I used to play Minuet on the recorder when I was little. NO, I WASN'T A NERD

Heh. The comments cut off my faux html which said "/protests too much" (replace quotes with brackets).
