That is lovely, MFA! You are extremely talented!! :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
I wrote a song (words and music) recently, and recorded it, but my camera has really bad sound quality, so my voice and the piano sound really bad. So I won't post it. :)

Since I don't have a YouTube account yet. . . . *brick'd* :P

I really, really liked the composition, MfA. I've probably listened to it twenty times today so far. :)) I can see why it reminds you of the color blue, because it makes me think of being in the ocean; the notes emphasizing the light glinting on the sea creatures, and creating great columns of light and shadow that stretch down into the depths. . . that's what I see when I hear it, anyway. ;))

I think it would be a great music to go with a montage of underwater scenes. Beautiful piece.

You really should get one! :p

Here is a song that I wrote using the digits of pi. It was very fun to hear how the song came out.

Whoa, that's really neat. I'm interested in mathematics and music so this was cool to hear. Who knew Pi would produce such a beautiful song! I think it would be cool to do the song again, but assign the numbers to different notes. Or, maybe try to modulate in the middle into another key. Just a little something to spice it up!

Very cool videos, Minotaur! Really like "Blue". :-)

And I'm glad you finally got that bag removed from your head... Or is that plastic surgery? Heh heh... :p Just kidding.

lol, Queen Susan. Thank you everybody!

Here is something that I did recently that's a bit different...I went around to different poles on the streets of my city and clanged them so that they made a note. I then edited it into a cover of the Super Mario Bros. theme song.

My brother just bought a guitar, and started taking lessons from our pastor. So when he comes home from them, he teaches me and my sister what he's learned. It's really fun, though super painful (I had no idea it hurt so much to play guitar), and though I'm really bad I still try to do it every day. :P It's exciting to be learning another instrument.

MinotaurforAslan, wow, you are creative! Insanely creative. That's really cool! :)

Elanor, yes, it does hurt when you first start, but playing every day is what will help. I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)

Yes, it hurts when you start, Elanor. :| All you can do is practice, and soon you'll build up calluses and it won't hurt anymore. :)

Here is another music video I made recently...playing a song with my breakfast. :P

I just miss playing the violin, haven't used it for a year! But I still am hoping that I will soon play again, anyways, Elanor, I know how it feels! Learning a new instrument is sooo exciting! So, how's your music lesson so far?

Winty and MFA - thanks, I'm sure it will stop hurting soon, it has already lessened. :)

I know, it is!! This is the only one I've learned since I was like - 7. :P So it's exciting. lol, I'm actually not taking lessons, my brother (who is) is kind of teaching me, but I'm mostly teaching myself. That's what I did for Piano too. :)

MinotaurforAslan, how do you come up with this stuff? That was epically awesome! :D :p

Elanor, I'm glad it's getting better. And good job for teaching yourself! That takes much more dedication. :)
