The RMI Electra-Piano has the most realistic piano tones of any instrument made - ever.

 

Including a real piano.

 

Yeah. I said it.

 

A RMI sounds better than a real piano.

Still no luck, hmmm...

 

Let's try this: The Great American Songbook is nothing more than a collection of mindless, unimaginative drivel! For the finest and most historically significant American music, look no further than The Doors.

 

If that doesn't do it, I'm filing a missing person report with the Dutch government.

Just to try to bring this thread to somewhere where we actually discuss the topic:

There are a great many number of famous musicians who are SELF TAUGHT.

Most notably, the great Frederic Chopin was in fact a self taught pianist (he only studied composition).

Jaco Pastorius was 'formally self taught' (lol),

Paul McCartney, who plays quite a lot of instruments damn well, was self-taught.

Thad Jones, Duke Ellington, the list goes on and on...

 

Ergo, 'playing well' it not exclusive to those who had lessons with a teacher.

Like many others I've talked to, I feel most of my practical playing knowledge is self-taught, the teachers I have studied with more 'set me on the right path' more than anything. In the realm of technique though I would agree a teacher is very important....

Yeah, but can any of those guys play with the least amount of effort?

Another try:

 

Not only do you not need lessons, but you don't need to know how to read sheet music AT ALL either.

 

Some other possibiliies:

 

Mustaches are for pansies!

If you don't record your music, then it never happened!

Why the hell would an American want to live in another country?

It always sounds better electrifed and amped!
