Hi Richard,

No, the last time I checked there Chris and Monica were deciding who would put up which parts of your submissions. I just now though left a comment.

Hello, David,

The last aside here: Thank you!

I was referring more specifically to the comment that there is no bass!

Hi Richard,

When in comes to piano, there are many ironies!

I have to go with those who love the metronome but avoid using it too often. I find I use it most when I first start working on a piece. Well, first I learn the notes and get it memorized, which doesn't take long. Then I go to metronome practice for discipline, though of course I take breaks during that period to play without metronome. When it gets closer to performance tempo I play with the metronome far less often, though I do still use it regularly to remind me where my internal clock is adjusting to my weaknesses.

I never use a metronome. I use a metronome app. :D

I never read eBooks. I read books. I bet there is great difference between our ages. :wink:
