I thought I'd start a thread where everyone can name a few of their favourite piano pieces.

Here are a few of mine:

  1. Chopin Minute Waltz Opus 64, No. 1
  2. Mozart K. 525 "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik"
  3. Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 3

It really depends on the piano transcription for it. Matthew Cameron's transcription is my favorite, but it's probably at the grade 8-9 level. Go to www.8notes.com and learn the easy version for it.

Andrew posted How to Play Fur Elise on YouTube, check it out. He does show the sheets of the song.

Do keyboards and keytars count? I love the speed and accuracy of Kingdom for a Heart, the live show Successor MCD (2000) version.

Not that, I most like Für Elise. I mean, that's a song we grow up listening. And there's another one I know how to play but forgot the name right now...
