A Musician Needs a Piano (Just Because)

One of the benefits of being a musician in a new home is the fact I have room to spare right now, and am looking to fill it in fun ways.

I primarily play the flute, but have always enjoyed other instruments.  One I've never fully mastered was the piano.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a virtuoso on the piano... as long as I can play one hand at a time.  Left hand, right hand, just not both.

Which is why I want one.

I don't have the room for a grand, but an upright piano would be perfect for the new house.  I'm not sure if I want to outright buy one or find a good rental company, but I definitely want to get one in the house so I can practice more.  I may check out some Piano Price Guides to see what range I'd be looking at.

Besides, I still have this idea of wanting my kids to learn a musical instrument and follow in their dad's footsteps.  If you start with piano, it's easy to transition to other instruments... but not the other way around.

Flute, trumpet, oboe, the fingers go up and down.  They don't move.  Piano is different, and hard to learn when you're used to fingers staying in one place.

Are there any pianists out there?  Do you have any tips to impart?

Aaaand THAT is why you always need to have a good, dismissive "fuck off" chambered and ready to toss out casually. This was the perfect usage of it. Also, "nuckie" is just a terrible insult. It sounds like you're so well renowned for fingering a girl (sorry ladies, I know it's gross terminology) up to your knuckle, that you earned that nickname like a trophy.

There's a lot of that in this state.

And usually I'm not so blunt, but he deserved what he got.

I'm proud of you for not backing down.

My huaband (from Parma, ID but won't own up to it) and I have traveled a lot in the last few years (with our Alaska plates still attached to the truck) and we have come across winners like this in almost every state we've visited. I think someone is putting "asshole de jour" tonic in the water. Or the sun is baking their brains because they forgot their tin foil hats again. :D
