    I've often accused some musicians of playing in the key of R# minor-thank you for confirming my suspicions!

    They don't even have it right. The real E key is marked C and so on.

    Pfft... Sometimes I have to play songs in Y flat... The key signature's got like twenty flats in it, it's a PITA.

    :D

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention. That is what happens when I multitask and don't proof read. Thank God for the edit function.

    I've always been irritated by people who write on instruments. Though I have several things I could say about people who do this, they are not nice things, and so I am going to keep them to myself.

    Okay one tiny thing.... I'm keeping the rest to myself.

    slug dumb freakin caveperson....

    Ha! :D

    If you look carefully at the left you can see it's the bottom octave of the keyboard. So some kid has just started with the first note and assumed it's A. Well, A is first, isn't it? Then you just keep going...
