threadjack: by any chance would anyone know of a web site that shows you how to play popular tunes on piano?

# i see
where would i find a program such as this?

# I used to have
an old version of Cakewalk that did it - I got it free on the cover of a magazine. Not sure if it still has that function though.

I currently have Sibelius which does the job and Cubase Score probably will too, but I've never used it - these cost money though.

# You would probably be better off
going to a music shop and having a look at their books.

You should be able to pick up books with lots of songs for not too much cash - it's not free, but you should be able to get a lot for your money.

# I think all Americans get tarred with the same brush
just cos the 'upper' end of society in the USA are a bunch of cunts, it doesn't mean that normal folks are any less likeable than anyone else. Some will be arseholes, some will be lovely

# My theory
is that there is a fixed percentage of idiots and arseholes in the world. America has a huge population, therefore it has more idiots and Arseholes.

Conversely though, it has lots of nice people too - all the Americans I have ever known have been from the nice percentage.
