whsbandgeek started following you

Hello! Are you a band geek? Because if so I absolutely love you now.

Hello! I love how I just saw this… XD
And yes, I am a very proud band geek :D

That’s fine. I did marching band in…

My best friend plays clarinet. 

I understand… I tried doing that, and I got so confused I finally just gave up and went back to flute. But last year I- thank god- realized I was sick of sounding like a dying cat, and they needed French horns anyway. (:

OHEY YOU TALKING ABOUT ME? =D

Bass clef is easy though. Then again… I was able to read the both of them since before middle school so maybe I shouldn’t be talking…

If you have that skill I an insanely jealous.  For some reason, probably because I didnt try till after I’d been playing for 5 years, and reading music for longer, I couldnt get it quick enough.  I had to write the notes on the top of the music >.<

It’s only because I’ve been playing piano for… a lot longer than the clarinet. But yeah! Nice to meet you! =]

:D Nice to meet you too.  Thanks for following.  I’m always amazed by people who can play piano.  I tried when I was ~7 or 8 but never get my hands to go do two different things while reading music.

^ Exactly. My mom is like, insanely good at it, and so is freaky-Asian-girl up there, and I on the other hand have enough trouble reading syncopated rhythms… Forget reading two lines at once x.X

Yeah. Syncopated rhythms are tricky, I always had to clap them out a few times to hear it so I could play them.  One reason I didn’t do jazz band.  Piano players are sort of freaks that way. :p

Soo true. I never actually learned to read rhythms, so I tend to just follow along in the first place, but then you throw a funky rhythm in and I look like Elmer Fudd on the Empire State building- lost, confused, and totally out of my comfort zone.

A great image there lol.  I learned to read them, every one took music theory freshman year, so there was no way out of it.  I couldn’t always keep up.  I tended to play by ear in that way.  Especially Motzart’s concertos.  I had a solo in one of them that was 8th, 16th, and 32nd notes with dots and up, down. everywhere.  I couldnt read it fast enough to process it and play it.  Hear it, play it, memorize it.
