    My goal is to learn to play it really well and that's it. No plans to learn any other songs. Some day I'll get my chance at glory, I'll be at a party and there will be a piano and I'm going to sit down and rock that bitch out! Lmao

    There's a video on YouTube about how to look like you know what you're doing with a Piano...

    It works.

    Had a falling job this last weekend at a campground.

    This first one, I was told that the small pine tree(as well as the whole line of pines to it's right) was not to be hurt...and this tree was headed a solid 90ยบ to the right of where I put it. You can sort of see the way it was headed from the stump. Behind me is a road that I couldn't lay it over...so it had one place to go.

    I was pretty proud of that one. Hard leaning dead pine probably a good 100'+ tall.

    This second one also headed off to the right of the picture although not as bad, it had to be turned quite a bit to get it where I needed it.

    Keep in mind, it was my 3rd time ever on a piano/keyboard.

    I will probably delete this when I sober up lol

    I just watched that and I was off key, missed a vital part and omitted several notes (chords?) With my left hand. Fix those issues, speed up the tempo and I will have about half of the song figured out

    Bad thing about this keyboard is you can't play softly or stronger to be dynamic to get the true beauty of the piece. Call me a dork but I am determined to learn to play this right....with feeling to give guys goose bumps and the ladies soaked panties!!!

    Oh yeah...McDavis, does my camo shirt make me a "redneck"? I had taken my son bowhunting that evening but even if that wasn't the case, I don't dress to impress....so suck it! Lol

    You wouldn't dare.

    Just wait. I'll get it. Its nothing more than muscle memory and rhythm. I have zero intentions of truely learning to play piano. Just this 1 piece. I'll never be Beethoven but I can elegantly fake my through it lol. Know I can.

    Also, I may live in the country, own a tractor, fish, hunt and drive a 4 wheel drive truck but I'm not a redneck. To me, a redneck is a backwards, Confederate flag flying, sister kissing, white trash lowlife that contributes nothing to society, that drives around drinking PBR shooting road signs while waiting for their next welfare check.......and probably all while wearing crocs

    So my idea of a redneck differs from the Oxford dictionary. The first line of the definition states something like, a blue collar working class white person from the south, e.g. a farmer with a sunburned neck, hence the term. Also mentions the derogatory usage for a southern bigot. So I continued down the rabbit hole to wikipedia and found pretty much the same thing. I was surprised that origin of the term wasn't mentioned, because it was my understanding that it came from a bloody battle between coal miners (wearing red bandanas around their necks) and the mine owners in West Virginia in the 1920s. It's an interesting story actually. Anyway no mention of that. So, I dug deeper and did find that referenced on another site but apparently the term "redneck" was first coined in England in the 1600s for a red scarf wearing group during a religious war. So yah, I learned something new and couldn't help but share this useless tidbit with you guys.
