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.
