    Well, can you? I can somewhat, but I haven't had any lessons. I'm actually playing Midna's Desperate Hour from LoZ: Twilight Princess right now. Actually, I don't think I'm coordinated enough to play with two hands. I have tried, but I definitely need more practice.

    I wish I could [​IMG] Then I might have reason for keeping the keyboard I own...which I am still not sure why I still have it

    Yes and no, I played Keyboard at school and I was told I'd be really good if I took lessons and practiced more.
    Everytime I used the Keyboard for a test or whatever group work or solo I never failed.

    But then I never really took it up afterwards, I might get myself a keyboard and start to learn properly sometime in the nearish future.

    You should maybe add a simple "No, I can't" answer [​IMG]

    I want to learn piano but I think it's too late and I don't have the time

    Well, I guess I can play...
    I used to take lessons up until two years ago but quit because the teacher was a jerk
    I still know how to play this song though:
    And I taught myself the kingdom hearts song Passion

    I love playing the piano but never really had much skill with it, probably the hardest song I know how to play is that OCREMIX chopenesque kirby, and there's tons of stuff harder that I can't even begin to attempt. It's really fun though and unlike when I started to pick up guitar your fingers don't usually hurt after practicing unless you're really pounding on the keys for some reason.

    No, I can't.
    I'd love to learn to play. One of these days I just might get some lessons.

    I can play quite a few things, but I can't play with two hands. I can play the Mario and Zelda themes, but nothing extremely fancy. I know parts to songs I listen to, and I can play by ear for most things I can play...I'm more into synth than keyboard, even though they're essentially the same thing.

    Kind of off-topic, but it relates: I'm getting a microKORG for my birthday.

    No, I can't, and I don't have any interest in it.
    Electric guitar is my style. [​IMG]

    Quite well, yes. Never had any lessons, neither do I own a piano. I'd say I'm a natural [​IMG]
