This should be quite an easy song to play, right? Just one instrument for most of the way, a nice slow ballad with no funny jumps or stretches across the keyboard required. It was my favourite song for a long time, so it would be a fairly good one to master, wouldn’t it?
Except I can’t. For all the years of piano lessons, I can’t co-ordinate my hands well enough to play two notes at once if my hands are required to be out of symmetry (so I can play chopsticks, which puts me on the same level of competency as someone with no hands at all). I can use this sort of keyboard just fine – I can type away at 90wpm, haven’t even had to look down at my hands once while typing this – but as for a piano keyboard, a tambourine, a triangle even, well, to quote Mr Fry again…I CAN’T FUCKING DO IT.
