Introducing oneself and then leaving is at least better than registering and leaving immediately...

Hello Again!

You lot seem like a good bunch, except I'm beginning to feel a little old... :eek:. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

As far as giving away Atari games goes Tuss... how could you???

Learning classical is just like learning a foriegn language, you can take it as far as you want i.e. if all you want to do is ask for directions and buy a croissant when taking a weekend break in France, thats quite easy and still very rewarding, if on the other hand you want to speak fluently with the locals you need to put the time and effort in.

The thing is though you _have_ to be able to read music, forget the tab, thats the hardest part but when you have the basics of reading you wont look back.

If you really want to learn I can point you in the direction of some good books, composers etc but this is getting a bit off-topic :)

Oh and I dont know who the 'airplane fellow' is but dont worry, you'll probably find i'll be here for a while now, maybe not every day but I wont be dissapearing.

You should get used to this - we never stay 'on-topic' here for long, but have 'flowing discussions' ;)

Sorry I never new that :) , I had basic piano ability before picking up the guitar and while I found this invaluable for the theory, I basically had to start again from scratch when it came to interpreting music for the guitar.

Can you sight read for the guitar? If so the transition to classical will not be too difficult.

Guitarists are notoriously bad sight-readers of music, especially in the higher positions, probably because the notation of the instrument is not linear. That was the biggest problem I found when starting.

Thats good to hear, some webmasters can be a bit funny about it sometimes but as I suspected, all here is cool ;)

Yeah, sight reading for guitar is not at all like the piano... very different.

Thanks ;) I never saw the point of interrupting and killing ongoing conversations for the sake of 'order'...

Hey there...
I'm new here. (sounds like an 'alcoholics anonymous') I just happened to stumble upon this place. I did!

I forgot why I signed up here anyway. 8[ Oh well... IF ANYONE is wondering - there are two people who use this nickname: me and then there is this boy on CDOS. We're both related...

Okay, that's it then. Bye bye.

Welcome :) I'm sorry, but the name doesn't ring a bell. Then again, the only site I ever knew called C:/DOS was run by a guy called Lane and it shut down in mid-2000....

As for the avatar - not the slightest idea :(

Welcome again, imissyou. I'm afraid that the picture has something to do with Japanese pop culture, and quite frankly, we are all analphabets in that here ;).

Hey! Godzilla vs. King Kong is a great movie - I love the special effects when Godzilla runs into those power lines ;)

So, but..Hey.

I'm not new here actually. I've been here for a while like..a year ago or something under the name Rinz(i think), before I got this hack attempt message when I wanted to log in.... :angry:
Today I thought to myself, let's try again. So here I am.
You guys still as lame-but-sometimes-witty as you were?
GOOD :D

I do remember you - and I do remember you once promised to send me something in the line of pictures and speech bubbles :P Don't worry, I'll forget about it if you want me to ;)

It's not possible to get the 'hacking attempt' message in this forum when logging in, so I guess you're referring to the old one?

You also might want to fix the homepage URL in your profile to a valid one :P

As you can see from this post, I'm 100% lame all the time :evil:
