Usually something simple, fast but lighthearted does the trick if you're trying to show off. If you can improvise in blues or jazz you can impress without the need to read music.

Anyway, simple pieces like "The Merry Farmer" or "Turkey in the Straw" would be good examples - not hard but can be made to sound impressive because of their note-density in the music.

Hope you do better with connecting your new Roland to a computer than I do! I've tried and tried to get my PC to 'pick up' my piano but it won't! And here I am and I want to make properly audible files of me playing instead of having to use my crappy mobile phone!

I'm off to Shrewsbury tomorrow (about 85km/52 miles from here) to meet my friend Dom, and give him his Christmas present! Better not say what it is, he might be reading this!

Good luck with the brain thing for this week - and I really mean it Marius!
Merry Christmas Dave! :)

I have tested the Roland, and its realy good! So it want pick up your piano :(

Hehe, yeah i think thats best.

Ok, dave. The result is that i have chronic sinus inflammation. So i have to take a new scanning. Its called CT-scanning.

If its realy bad, i most get under the knife :cry: If you understand?

Not Norway, but a bit nearer - London, to meet Anna Moonlight and give her our Christmas present! Though we want to go and see the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, which ALWAYS comes from Norway, so we'll see a bit of Norway I suppose!

I haven't been to London since 1986!
Wow :D Yeah, thats true. The christmas tree comes from Norway !! Thats cool :D

But did you get my PM ?

Oh.....? Only a 300SX?
Did you read my posting at all?
I'm only joking! :P

One is just a more compact and light-weight version of the other.
You'll have to showcase some of your blues and boogie riffs in time. In fact, I think it'd be a great idea to see if we can all show case our performances, particularly if we have keyboards/digital pianos!
