          Maybe they were hoping for Mozart.

          Ultimately what you play -- the musical content -- does have some importance. I was quite impressed by her skill but I found the music... let's say... uninvolving.

              Aww, come on, it's just a Rush song.
              I could play that song when I was 13. (the year it came out)


              not like that, though...
              even though she did hit a few clams, and didn't quite have some of the correct notes.
              The "guitar" solo was real good.
              I wonder where she got the drum track from?

                Rush tends to do that to people.

                  IIRC, this was for a Yamaha press/dealer event in Japan about five years ago, showing off the capabilities of the keyboard. The same girl has done versions of "Carry On My Wayward Son" and other classic rock fodder. To me, it's obvious that she's aping the notes, but doesn't have any feel for the tunes. She probably doesn't even like the music.

                  And yes, Cooter: I played a lot of Rush in a cover band when I was 14/15. Back then it seemed cool, or something.

                  Anyway, it would be neat to see what she plays like when she's doing something she wants to do, and not being a human robot for a dealer show.

                        I have to say I'm more impressed by the young player in question than I am by the instrument (or the musical selections). There's one guitar sound that's OK but then things drop off pretty quick, sound-satisfaction-wise. I don't hate a couple of the organ sounds.

                        Maybe they should cut to the chase and try having her cover Vanilla Fudge.
