I once said to my friend, I'm going to go crazy if I don't play some of these [tracks] on the piano one day. I would share something as banal as dreams more often but unlike with visuals I couldn't really tell you how I dream about music I have no recollection of hearing before, that's lame. (The other time I dreamed about attending a snob music school and there was this guitar with rusted steel strings lying around and I took it to play an inaccurate rendition of Frog's Theme, then this girl grabbed it and started playing something so crazy it hardly even sounded like a guitar anymore while giving me this snooty look, but I was too impressed to be upset. I know I most definitely heard it from somewhere irl, I just couldn't tell you where.)

But I can't actually play anything, so where to start?

There's this cute simple piece that its composer graciously provided the sheet for, which is great. Only problem is, I can't read notes worth a damn. Like, at all. And my "playing" is only marginally more advanced than that. So I'm doing the one thing available: study it to death.

Page one of two looks like this:

It took me about 2 days to figure out the melody from scratch, then another 5 or so days after that to figure out the accompaniment. It took two weeks for me to get through the whole thing once, but a few months later I still couldn't play it with the right timing or without screwing something up. Self-fulfilling prophecy: I suck
