I often have a simple question but I don't want to open a thread for it. Everyone who has such a short question can use this thread.

And my first question in this thread:

Is there a difference between the blue and grey Henle books? I want to order one, but in the picture on the website it's grey, and when I Google it, it has a blue cover.

The grey ones are hardback with linen cover. Very expensive compared to the paperback blue ones (but also very nice).

A single thread for short questions is not practical.

People read and/or respond to questions based on the topic of the thread that draws them in. Long or short, so many different questions would be buried in the thread that people would not know what to look for without reading through the entire thread which could get very long.

Then, because not everyone answers immediately, responses to some questions will me interspersed with responses to other questions and the whole thread will become a jumble of responses, each one not necessarily related to the most recent question asked.

What is wrong with opening a new thread with a question, no matter how short it may be? Many of us are quite verbose in our responses and sometimes many people will respond to a simple, short question. The suggestion doesn't seem to merit pursuing, in my opinion.

Regards,

In my experience the grey hardback Henles stay open much better than the blue paperback ones.

That's why I didn't write a question there.
There is nothing wrong with opening a thread but I often have questions that are not very interesting, or worthy of opening a whole thread for, so I end up not asking at all.

But if it's not a good idea this thread can be removed.

No need for that Josephine! The thread will probably die by itself, as (almost) all other threads inevitably do. Or, someone else thinks that this is a great idea, and adds their question. smile
It has certainly happened to me that I have a short question and don't want to start a whole thread about it.


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Threads cost nothing. People have even started threads just to say hello.

I did this with the best intentions. It's exhausting that the fact that no matter what you do or say here, there are always a few that have to express that it's completely wrong. Why is that?

It is just a thread, my god. Do we need discussions about everything? You can't do anything right here. No matter what you say, there is always someone who needs to say how stupid it is.

Hi Josephine

You've posted the thread. If it gets used it's worked, if it doesn't it hasn't.
It's human nature to express opinions.

Just leave it and see what happens.

Cheers

I believe the explanation is that there are many people who are uncomfortable with change, and when something new is proposed they instinctively revolt against it. I suggest you don't take it personally, because in all likelihood it wasn't meant to be; it's simply knee-jerk reactions.

Why are you seemingly so upset because one person posted an opinion - only an opinion - that suggested such a thread might not be practical? Who said it was "completely wrong."

I think the better suggestion was to try it. if it works, it works; if it doesn't, it won't.

Most of us try to be helpful; too bad you don't see that and think that "you can't do anything right here."

I'm sorry, I had a bad day, I shouldn't have said anything. But by the time I realized that I couldn't remove it anymore.

LOL - OK - I'll bite

Tempo Giusto - Schubert, Chopin, Boccarini used it

Does it mean "play at an even tempo', or, 'play at an appropriate tempo'

Tempo giusto means in strict time - i.e. no rubato.

I think for Schubert it means, the proper tempo. So for Schubert I think 'appropriate' is correct.

I have not come so far yet, but I am sure that I will find them very annoying when I try to learn them.
