Nice letter, Bill....a slice of real life, plain and simple. Some TV producer should run with what you wrote and make it into a "reality" show. 'Cause that's what it is......REALITY!

Which leads to a bigger question for me? I'm wondering now how many musicians DON'T have formal training? What do you think? P.S. I personally think that non-trained musicians play better as they don't deal intellectually with music structure and rul

My 92 year old neighbor is selling her Hammond 125XL organ from the 70's. Great condition, and plays fine (I checked it out). She is asking $350 or best offer.. Pick up only.

I know a few of you have moved from using SMF/MIDI files to mp3. May I ask how you are making those conversions? Must I play the midi file while recording it as an mp3 or is there software that will do this? Thanks.
