If I wore one on each finger Keith, would I be able to play the piano? :D

(You don't have to answer that!) ;)

But if they are tapered and made to measure and in other colours, you might like to tell him that they would make lovely display stands for crystal spheres (gemstone type like I use the Dartington ring holders for) and would also display fancy marbles well too!

There see, I have doubled his sales overnight! :)

Can you play the piano? if yes then I don't think it would improve your technique and do you want a form a band called the 'GMB ers'
If I see him again I'll pass on your ideas ;D ;D

!.  Yes I can play the piano.
2. No I don't want to form a group.
3. Do tell him ~  it will help if he displays them with marbles or gem speres so people can see   how lovely they look.  True Crystal Therapists don't like their crystals put on plastic or metal holders they either use wood, rock crystal or glass.

just to say Keith that I thought it was a very original and clever quiz question - I'd never have got the answer -  musically illiterate  -  so well done.

I align myself with Peter Hall on the business of piano-playing.  8)
He said he can play some Schubert sonatas for his own pleasure - but not for anybody else's!  ;D

That's about where I stand on the piano playing front as well Sue!!

It would seem there are a lot of us around... I was given a pair of headphones as a present, and I thought it was so I couldn't hear the din I was making, but it appears it was so nobody else can!!
 
That says it all!  :'(

I don't hear the din I make - I "hear" what I want to be playing in my head, a few milliseconds in advance of playing it. It really doesn't matter to me what noise comes out!
