      Re-scoring the same sequence of notes to be played at lower or higher octaves has probably been done by every advanced student who’s ever been bored with his lessons and just wanted to play around. Most of us probably started at middle C and for fun raised or lowered the octaves a few times until we got bored doing this or got inspired to take the innovation to a higher level, much like what these young dudes have done. Except these guys got really creative.

      Transcribing a complex, musically sophisticated sequence of notes (like Alkan’s Right Hand segment of the Etudes) for one hand so that two octaves can be played simultaneously by two right hands is pretty damn clever and requires a type of shared musicianship I never had a chance to develop (horn players never share their horns). I noticed the guy on the right measuring out the limits of the range before settling on the starting point. These guys may be beer buddies but they’ve got the skills.

      Still, this was a lot of fun to watch and these young guys obviously have a lot of talent. By the way, close friends Liszt and Chopin used to sit at the same keyboard and improvise together for fun.

      NOTE: Even more challenging would be transcribing this for three right hands, assuming you can find three relatively accomplished and relatively slender pianists to share the same keyboard (and piano seat). However, I don’t see how this would be possible without over-lapping several mid-ranged octaves or completely stressing out the high end. Three hands sharing seven octaves equally? It makes my brain hurt thinking about it so you’ll have to get input from our resident keyboard expert, Petr, on this.

      NOTE REDUX: My replies. even after edits, tend to be overly expressed: a malady that writers suffer from time to time. My bad!

    Can I Take (1) Watson 749 And (2) Watson 349? Just broke my ankle yesterday and want to know if this is safe to take ? Got both of them from doc but says to take (1) each. Only thing is, i cant tell a difference and the pain is still the same with / without the pills

    • Curator says:

      Watson 749 is generic Percocet, that is oxycodone / acetaminophen 5mg / 325mg
      Watson 349 is generic Vicodin, that is hydrocodone / acetaminophen 5mg / 500mg

      Both oxycodone and hydrocodone are mild narcotic pain relievers (opioids), and acetaminophen (Tylenol) is added to them to make their anesthetic effects stronger.

      Perhaps, your doc is right to tell you both to relieve your pain, but be careful not to exceed the maximum dose of acetaminophen (no more than 1000mg at a time, and no more than 4000mg a day), because it is very hard on the liver.

    How Many People Need Dog Names? Now i have seen so many people ask the question “what should I name my dog”. I thought that i should post a few hundred dog names so that anyone who is looking can find some… inspiration. if you are one of those people who are like “it’s your dog name it whatever you want!!!” please… you don’t have to yell.

    Note: I am not a loser with way too much free time, I promise! i spent five hours in a truck with a dog rescue group and we got bored…

    there is no real question, i am simply providing answers to many questions all at once. [=
    I will be sure to add your suggestions! [=

    2011 ECF Finals: (1) Bulls Vs. (2) Heat. PREDICTIONS!? I will not give a game by game prediction. But will breakdown the; Starting Lineups, Bench Lineups, Coaching Matchups, & the overall series predictions.

    * Starting Matchups

    – Derrick Rose vs. Mike Bibby
    Even Celtics PG Rondo had a hard time keeping Rose infront of him, & thats truly saying something. I’ve heard everyone say; “Derrick Rose or BUST!” Well probably not this time, I can see throughout all series, the Heat players over-committing when Rose comes into the lane, kicks it out to: Korver, Bogans, Brewer, Watson, & Gibson for the long range, or Noah & Boozer for the dump-off!

    Winer: Rose

    – Keith Bogans vs. Dwyane Wade
    Bogans, not a lockdown defender (i.e. Grizzlies’ Tony Allen) but is an above average defender that will not require too much help with Wade. But Wade will need to work off the ball like he did aganist Ray Allen. If Wade can get out in the open, its just about 2pts everytime!

    Winner: Wade

    – Luol Deng vs. LeBron James
    2 streaky shooters. This is an important matchup. Both can help their team out in big ways. But, Deng is going to really have to step up. A quiet 18 pt affair wont do! He is going to have to stand up to LeBron early & often in order for them not to falter. As for LeBorn, we know his; name, power & reputation, but what will happen when things dont go his way?

    Winner: James

    – Carlos Boozer vs. Chris Bosh
    The most-important matchup in this series! 2 men who are considered over-paid, & over-rated to do what they do! One man (Bosh) who was thrown in the Miami deal in order for it to be completed. Dont be made Miami fans, thats the honest to God truth! The other man (Boozer), has taken Tracy McGrady’s un-official title of; “Half-Man, Half-Season” & Bulls mgmt. are paying for a guy who has several 1st rd victories over the Rockets, many years ago. But who will shed that label of;”Fakest Tough Guy in the League” first?! Boozer needs this more than Bosh. We all know that Bosh can easly hide behind 2 guys (Wade & James), Boozer has his defeciencies made up alongside w/ Noah. They compliment one another. But if Boozer can make Bosh dissappear, then it will go a long ways for the Bulls.

    Winner: Even

    – Joakim Noah vs. Heat Center by Committee
    In the nothing to write home about section, Noah will outplay any big (defensively) the Heat trouts out there! Big Z wont go into the paint to bang w/ Noah. Dampier?!; where has he been?! J. Howard?!; please put him in streetclothes, immediaetely! J. Anthony?!; is better, but thats not saying too much. I dont even feel comfortable having Haslem thrown into the spot because he just got back. Noah is going to most liekly have a field day.

    Winner: Noah

    * Bulls Bench vs. Heat Bench
    Both teams feature spot up shooters. But the Heat bench doesnt really play defense. Meanwhile, Chicago will play defense because they have brought into Coach T’s system. This will be the difference.

    Winner: Bulls Bench

    * Coaching Matchups

    – Tom Thibodeau vs. Erik Spoelstra
    2011 NBA Coach of the Year (Thibodeau); has something to prove here, he is standing out on his own after being an Asst. to Doc Rivers over the last 4 years. He can make all the right game-to-game adjustments that you really dont see out of coaches these days. Meanwhile, Spoelstra, will try to run some sort ‘freelance’ offense to get out in the open transition. But what ‘Spo doesnt realize is that this isnt Boston he is running up aganist, this is a team with alot of athleticisim as well.

    Winner: Thibodeau

    * Series Prediction

    BULLS win 4-3

    Enjoy & let me know what you think!
