I think stores knows what it's like to be a professional musician, seeing as he is one.

I didn't find his speech romantic - it's true. What you said is true as well - although I did have to accept a gig right after I got back from "vacation" because I had to.. so I had about 2 days to get back into shape and learn the damn thing..

Oh wonderful, now I'm being critiqued by a New Age musician.

As if Jazz is all that great. Seriously Dave - where's your art?

Nice diversion Dave. But I'm afraid you're evading. Or are you just a poser?

eweiss, I searched your site but could not find any examples of your playing. Am I not looking in the correct place?

Since I've made my living by performing, you know, by playing in real time on a piano with real people listening - and paying to listen, somehow I thought that excluded me as being labeled a poser. Perhaps I'm wrong though.

Where could I catch you performing ... live, that is? I have friends in your area. I'd love to fly over and hear you play ... and please provide links to your playing. smile

Dave, you called 'motif' a poser for not showing his art. I'm simply wondering if you have anything to show other than cover tunes.

Some of my stuff is over at http://www.youtube.com/user/edwardweiss

I used to perform live. Not anymore. When I did, it was my own material. Yes ... believe it or not, people paying to hear New Age piano live.

So where's your art? smile

Don't you mean I'm becoming an annoyance to you? You won't silence me nor will those who don't like me or what I have to say. Don't like it? Click away.

Becoming? Old Ed has been an annoyance long before now, but he's not a bad guy...he just likes to run his mouth from time to time, but then I run my mouth a little too often sometimes too.

eweiss, I've listened to your Rain Forest and am now seriously considering selling both my pianos. I'm thinking of having a keyboard designed for me that only consists of diatonic tones. I realize now how much of my musical life has been wasted by spreading myself over 12 chromatic tones when seven diatonic tones are all that are really needed to create satisfying, organic music.

I see my musical life making a complete circle. I started by playing purely diatonic music even before I could read music and then expanded my horizons harmonically to include chromaticism. I can now return to the music of my infancy and complete the circle of life and the circle of music at the same time.

Thank you so much for sharing this with me - it was so organic. I now feel truly grounded.

I did notice a strange nearly constant rain like noise which competed with your piano playing. Perhaps that is some kind of internet anomaly or electrical interference.

Good luck with your art.

Fascinating analysis Dave. But even though you may not like what I've done here, your response is not unexpected as it is with all who put down others but have nothing to show themselves.

Again Dave, where's your art? Or are you just a poser? I'm assuming the latter since you have nothing to show except old cover tunes.

Wtf is going on?? You people call that new age crap art?

Of course it's art pogo. As is your Beethoven, Chopin, etc. Except the difference is they created it. Believe it or not, the title of this site is Piano World - not classical Piano World.

Ok. I guess we can call many things art.

I thought you didn't think interpretations were art? I'm glad you changed.

Also there is a non-classical pianist corner.

I've listened to these mp3's - Dave's a damn fine artist.
