The problem with sheet music is that, for me at least, I can't read the music and hear it in my head (can anyone do that?). So I need to hear it actually played first, and I'm not an aficionado of classical stuff. I now want to get my hands on this:
Canon in D by Pachelbel. I don't think this is a particularly good rendition, but maybe that's just the piano.
NOW YOU GO! WITH LOL VIDEOS PLZ, SO I CAN LISTEN.
why no contemporary stuff? because it usually sounds shit on its own. seriously. have you ever tried to play American Pie on the piano? FAIL.
