JordiGH
I've often wondered if Emacs keychording skills are in any way transferrable to piano.
ams
JordiGH: nope :-)
JordiGH
I don't know what playing an instrument feels like, but I imagine it feels like playing Emacs.
Cerebellum hardwiring.
ams
but seriously, pick up an instrument.
any...
i started playing the flute when i was around 24-5 i think
JordiGH
I do want to try piano. My fingers are already very accostumed to, well, keyboards.

I'm trying to remember what's so special about 28.
stepnem
ams: oh, what kind of flute is that, really? what music do you play on that?
junis
JordiGH: lovely .. that's calles a "perfect number"
dim
gn little boys :)
JordiGH
junis: Right, I confuse it with 24, which is the most composite number.
ams
stepnem: simple system flute, made from granadilla.
JordiGH
1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14, right.
ams
stepnem: as for music, shurg, anything
stepnem: mostly trad stuff...
junis
JordiGH: yeah... that is a perfect number
JordiGH
junis: 24 is specialer, people don't often know why. :-)
It's the largest number divisible by everything smaller than its square root.
junis
the sum of it's own devisors
ams
JordiGH: anyway, start playing anything.
JordiGH: even a harp
stepnem
ams: well, what kind of "trad"?
JordiGH
ams: I have no rhythm and tone deaf.
ams
stepnem: irish, welsh, some baltic...
