I am a conservative Christian and was homeschooled all the way through.

I'm a web developer and I enjoy it thoroughly. My BluegrassPiano.com website was a fun side job. There's always something more to do on it, so you just might see some changes over time.

I highly recommend watching the extremely popular movie (over 3 million views) at http://180movie.com/. It's entirely free and not easily forgotten.

John 3:36
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Do you know where you will spend eternity?

comment Keyboard volume pedals
Actually, thank you very much for resurrecting this post and pointing that out to me. While the link you posted wasn't exactly what I was looking for, it did lead to exactly what I was looking for (hence the link edit in case it helps future visitors)! I hadn't known about that FAQ, and was very excited to have this question answered. Thank you!

comment Keyboard volume pedals
Unfortunately, I haven't figured out a good system yet, and at this point, I just adjust the sliders with my hands. I purchased the FC7 (well built, nice pedal), which I use for overall volume control. I haven't figured out how to use it for just one of the zones. Let me know if you get some good vibes going.

comment What are some solid techniques for playing the piano quickly (fast tempo)?
Wow. Excellent post! Thank you very much. Your tip on tension was a needed one as I am very prone to that, and it will not go unheeded. I also really appreciate your comment on Hanon exercises - makes perfect sense. With the repeated chords, just one clarification - I should "lock" my wrist straight (in line with my forearm), and play with my forearm? Or something else?

comment What are some solid techniques for playing the piano quickly (fast tempo)?
Very good. I hadn't thought of that. I edited my post with more information. It does come down to, for me, physically hitting the keys fast enough. Thank you.

comment Replacing a single guitar note with a chord
Someone should have a good answer (and the answer of the linked to question looked good too), but chances are it will pertain more to the key then the note - if you will. For example, if you're playing in the key of G, if it is a simply chorded song, chances are a D chord would sound better with it (F# is the major 3rd of the D chord which is the 5 chord of G).
