    Depressing, isn't it. All those years spent learning and practising and all we really had to do was just buy this!</P>


    Still, that's a hell of a console in the pic. Worth clicking on the link just to see it.</P>

    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      Yeah, like I can "play" the organ by putting on a CD. [^o)] </P>


      Is it legal to sellthat kind of stuff?</P>

        That console is the Naval Academy Organ in Annapolis, MD. I played it last year for a wedding, and it's definitely a beast.

          Next they'll have one for people to learn how to FIX a pipe organ.</p>

          Or maybe conduct an ensemble? Get the best of Beethoven and Schumann's mind right in your own! []</p>

            Damn, I should get that...sure would make life easier, [A]. regarding the console at Annapolis, that's almost too much console, I know knobs look cool, but ther's a reason they went with tabs on Wanamaker and ACCH, and this was it, to keep the console from getting unwieldy, Just my opinion.

              Also, another thought I had.</p>

              </p>

              Do you REALLY wanna have your mind messed with like that when you need all its pieces in the right places just to play one piece? [^o)]</p>

              </p>

              I don't about you guys, but I tend to need all my brainspace to play a piece. I don't want pieces of my mind going missing due to subliminal screwups.</p>

              </p>

              We're insane enough as it is; we don't need help, thank you very much.</p>

                I don't get it. What do those photos above the console picture have to do with playing the organ? Or is there a subliminal message there too?</P>

                  How about collectively chipping in and purchasing a copy of this "guide"? If seven of us donated a dollar...
                  </p>

                  I would be willing to donate, just to hear what they have to say on it, and then to disect their methods and techniques. Curious really to see what they (the guide) haa to say.
                  </p>

                  Any takers?</p>
