I do enjoy Chopin. Prelude in a minor is really awesome. In general, he's not one of my favorites, just because I don't listen to a ton of piano-centric music, but when I do, Chopin is high on my...

I have no issue with New Complexity. When I'm asked about awful modern composers, I think more of composers who write tonal music, that doesn't go anywhere, and are just bad it. Foremost among them,...

I generally do this two handed tapping thing, where I tap fifths and thirds with my left hand and improvise with my right. It's showy, and I'd never use it in a song.
