Tell me what you think of this. Sorry for the low quality recording.

I also found a player for Apple OSX yippie

Thanks!

I think it is a bit on the slow side, and some avoidable errors.

I would not play it any faster than that. Did you notice any non-trivial mistakes? It's hard to play something perfectly...

At least for my lazy practice, I won't get so many mistakes!

I practise my pieces only once a day (very lazy!), I recorded this Debussy's piece too, but I didn't get so many mistakes!

Give me some examples of mistakes that I made. I count two.

1:05
1:56-2:06 Most of the D sharps should be natural.
2:44
3:39 It should be a tie.
3:40-3:45
3:56
4:02
afterwards it is a bit not so tidy~

my recording of this song (perhaps it is really too fast!)

I just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about this discussion. I've been very busy over the last few days. When I get some time, I will listen to all of that and determine if I agree with you.

.ogg can be run by Winamp, Bernard. If you still can't, there are some trial programs out there which will convert .ogg in several formats, including .mp3

I particularly liked this recording mkorman smile
I believe that you should try to implement more dynamics at certain points (0.220.36). Also try to make this piece sound more heavenly. Overall, it was well done. I have attempted this piece and heard it many times, so I can only notice one mistake (note wise), at 1:05. Anyways, good job, and keep working on it (but not too much!)

Thanks, Googlism. I used Audacity to convert it to mp3.

Very nice mkorman, I'm enjoying this muchly as I write.

That probably means:
1. You are not familiar with this piece really.
2. You also play those wrong notes, the wrong notes that are most easiest to be found are the D sharps should be natural during 1:56 to 2:06.
3. Your ears have some problems, sorry that, but that's really not so possible that those Ds can't be heard.

Hi!
You play very well. I would suggest picking up the tempo just a little bit. I love this piece!

Thanks again for the comments everyone. For those who are wondering what Ogg is, it is a patent-free audio format, similar to MP3 (except that MP3 is patent-encumbered, of course). You can find more info at http://www.vorbis.com/.

For those who think that I played this too slowly, I have to say I disagree.

1:05 It's possible that I hit an additional key here. Is that what you're referring to?
1:56-2:06 Yes, you're right about those. Thanks.
2:44 What's the problem here?
3:39 I don't see a tie here. What are you talking about?

The other spots you mentioned do have errors.

Maybe I'll post another version of this, if I feel like recording it again.
