    I met this incredibly talented young man last Saturday - he’s my niece’s boyfriend. Never had a music lesson in his life - can’t even read music, but thanks to YouTube he plays piano like this! Amazing!

    Lovely lovely video Del. That young man has talent for sure!

    I'm often embarrassed to admit that I have no musical training whatsoever Funnily enough, I am allowed to teach (for free) others to play the ukulele. I do think it's one of the easiest and most accessible instruments to learn to play ~

    But that makes what you do even more impressive, Kev! Don’t be embarrassed - be very proud of yourself!

    Hey! I'm self taught too - but in my case - it shows!

    Never put yourself down, in fact, those that can play without any training may just be blessed & lucky, compared to us, who struggle to make interesting sounds.

    I took music in school but it went in one ear and out the other. It wasn't until I picked up the uke and started talking to people on here that some aspects of music theory started to make sense and that improved my playing immensely.

    I think most people will absorb a bit of it through osmosis just by playing a part in the Seasons and we have a few really good teachers here who can explain things without even trying to teach.

    every listening experience is, in some ways, a learning experience.

    I never had private music lessons, but tried to pick up as much as possible in school / high school music classes.

    Sadly, I think the theory stuck better than playing stuff.

    Music is about the ability to communicate what you're doing with others and you do that very effectively Kevin. The Irony is that we attempt to read music in order to emulate those in the cotton fields where it all began who could barely spell their own names let alone musical notation. Keep doing what you're doing mate, It works.
