I'm trying to learn "Fur Elise," for 3 reasons:

1)because that's my final for my intro to Piano class

2)because everyone IN THE WORLD knows how to play it besides me (and I want to be like everyone else).

3)I didn't want to learn "the Star-Spangled Banner," and there's two reasons within the 3rd:
1)I don't want that information in my brain
2)Fuck the word 'Spangled.' That word sucks.

Thank you.

ok to make you feel semi-better i don't know how to play but the first few notes of "Fur Elise". but i don't know a lot so that probably doesn't help.

"Fur Elise" is a wonderful choice though, one of my favorites..again useless info that I am full of this evening.

and spangled does suck big donkey, does it mean anything?

It's just such an ugly word. Like, "Oh darling, look at the beautiful sky above us, how it's SPANGLED with stars." Fuck that.

Hell, I don't even like the word SPANG. Pang's alright. Pootang's alright. SPANG? Nope.

I am so full of useless info right now! I kinda like it.

I think I'm always full of useless info, or incorrect info at least.

pootang...that's a great word!

hehe, who's your teacher?

I'm sure you'll get by with an A.

You'll do awesome; Fuer Elise is fairly easy and is very beautiful. One of the sections of it is one of my favorite to play in all of piano, but I haven't taken piano lessons in FOREVER so I should probabley try discovering some new illin' shit.
Next you should learn the Moonlight Sonata...so beautiful. A dude playing the Moonlight Sonata is sexy (heh heh).

Yes Fur Elise is pretty easy, and fun.

Moonlight Sonata is one of my favorite songs.
