people should do as you... get the app and push that button!!!

Really? You're happy to see musicians just get an app and push the button.

That's a bit of a 180 isn't it?

Okay, until now I've been posting as just a KVR member, but now I will speak as moderator. If you want to keep trying to argue that others should follow your definition, that's fine. Personal flaming isn't fine.

tl;dr version: Argue. Don't fight.

Am I a musician or not?

I'm interested to see if you think my ability to play instruments is adequate enough for you to decide if I'm a musician or not.


he's already decided you're not, on the basis of a few seconds worth of something or other on soundcloud. he clearly didnt understand the words 'piano improvisation' on the same page.
To laymen, software development is something akin to wizardry. Neither time, nor effort are involved. If software is missing features they want, or has bugs, it is solely because someone has been too lazy to wave their magic wand.

But I haven't studied at the Royal Academy and Julliard for 10 years each and have the ability to play every orchestral instrument using only my ears, so am I a musician? HELL NO!!!

Sorry but its my longheld opinion that if you want to be an audience, you have to meet basic literacy standards. Just my opinion of course, but anyone who uses apostrophies the way you just did, well, i'm afraid that you're just not what Im looking for.


COOL!!!

hopefully... my basic literacy standards will improve... because i would love to hear the music of an individual with your aptitude!!!

must be some Mozart sh!t!!! i.e. a real musician!!!

that is what i thought...

question... and be honest... is it really my basic literacy or your lack of musicianship... the reason behind not showing you music?

Meffy - please note... he started with the "basic literacy" stuff... i am only questioning his musicianship... i.e. would love to hear it!!!
