Actually, I personally think that ppl who are quite good at keying like that can actually type faster
than we can talk.
(except maybe not faster than the rapid-fire disclaimer in a radio/tv ad, idk.)
I can speak from experience - once you learn to play, playing the piano is actually a lot of fun! I often play for the younger kids / church friends, and often enjoy slipping a little bit of Super Mario brothers in the middle of a song.
I don't think I'd call it lame to be able to play well.
although maybe I am
a bit of a loser for enjoying it so much :P
Hopefully whatever piano you get will keep you smiling ear to ear even more.
I personally like the older Baldwin Hamiltons, but Kawai pianos can be good too.
Oh, and be careful DWT. I don't want you to hurt yourself in a wreck or worse kill yourself cause you were texting while driving.
And I appreciate the H&K. I actually if I remember correctly haven't (at least in real life) been on the receiving end of that since about the equivalent time that a Baldwin grand piano with a humidity control system in a climate-controlled room would have been tuned to A-440, assuming same piano has the good pinblocks that Baldwin has been known for, AND is now a full tone / 200Â¢ flat. (I personally think it'd be nice to be able to share H&K with my friends at least as often as an old 3/4-plate birdcage upright piano used frequently in concerts would need to be tuned, assuming it has a cracked pinblock and split bridges. :P)
