Ive heard enough of this QT bashing. You guys think you can just waltz in here like your the emperor, on the anniversary of the new year and be rude! Just because QT wants his own fanfare does not make him a bad person, even if he did find out he's only common. He said he could hear some Beethoven, yet all you guys did was bash him and egmont him on. With your tempest mindsets, I would be suprised if he ever comes back in here again. You guys took much humoreske in bashing him and insulting his intelligence. Im appalled.
Go read all of what he's posted in the past.

A feeble effort. How long did you spend on this post, two minutes?

edit: Beethoven didn't write any humoreskes, and AFAIK waltzes either.

horray, rachmaninoff got most of it. He just missed the words: anniversary + waltz = Strauss, fanfare+for+the+common = copeland,

Didn't notice those. I don't really like J. Strauss, and I really, really hate Copland (though, at least I can spell his name write :tongue2:)

Yeah, Copland is pretty bad. J. Strauss is great, if you don't like him you lack taste.

D'oh!

Sometimes it takes a minuet for things like that to sink in (even if it's in a liszt right in front of you).

WHAT!? Aaron Copland is awesome! Fanfare for the Common Man and Appalachian Spring are just two of his most popular but he has a lot of other really great orchestral and choral works.

Losers.

Ah, geez folks, I go away for a few days, and this is what I return to. :rolleyes:

Okay, while QT has somewhat asked for the teasing by starting out asking if we think he has talent and then posting that he doesn't care what we think anyway, this seems to have gone a bit too far.

QT, being able to match notes you hear to the keys on a piano is, unfortunately, not sufficient to indicate any talent. This doesn't mean you have no talent, it just means this is not adequate to determine if you do. Even those with talent require training to develop that talent and make it something special.

What you have demonstrated is basic aptitude that will make it easier for you to learn to play the piano (or any other instrument) should you choose to take lessons. Having some sense of pitch, which is what matching sounds to keys is, will help you more quickly recognize wrong notes when you play them as you learn.

As with any interest, if it pleases you to do it, pursue it. We would do you a disservice to tell you that your skill translates into a special talent if it doesn't, but that does not mean you can't take lessons and develop a talent. Whether you ever develop any extraordinary talent or not doesn't really matter as long as you enjoy what you play.

Did anyone else notice that the only reason we were being hard on QT was because he takes things the wrong way and was affected by it? It obviously happens everywhere too. If someone pokes fun at somebody and the person gets mad, soon enough more people join in just because the person is being a tight ass.


One thing though, rarely do you find that you have a talent in something without working with it for a while. Everything takes time.

What's really funny is that we always give him really good advice, yet he totally ignores it and finds something to be insulted about.

Look at the "Can I do Calculus?" thread in the Academic section. 95% of the replies were genuine and very helpful, yet he found ways to be insulted. Same with the "What's your IQ thread," we gave him good advice and told him not to worry about his IQ -- especially not to compare it to other peoples -- yet, somehow, he got insulted.

If he’s trying to find something he’s good at, that’s great for him, I think most people do some soul searching at that age. However, most people don’t expect to be hailed as the great messiah of physics at 17 when they haven’t taken a physics course!
