    fuck I love this………………..I’m such a piano fish playing kinda gal…I thought I was the only player of the piano fish, it is really exciting to know I’m not alone. I like to wear my purple frock and yellow sun hat when playing the piano fish, having the window open is optional. :)

  • Ohh Lisa… others can come out of the closet now that you’ve opened the door.
    Your a trail blazer!
    You can check out the dress code manual if ever in doubt
    on what to wear…a entire section on frocks!!!
    ….the open window let’s the cat out :))

    I gave up playing the piano fish, I used to do the scales every day but now it sounds discordant and I can’t find a tuna…

  • Now Matt is getting silly ! Haha! Don’t give up Matt! Many do the scales with a fillet knife which would produce the discordance. See “Doing the Scales Properly” (on pg. 4) and continue your practice! Some great info on how to
    tuna fish in the FAQ!

    You are inspiring me to start a revolution. Playing piano fish was outlawed in my country many years ago. Being caught playing a piano fish, even in the privacy of your own piano fish case, is punishable by imprisonment in the Artists Penal Colony, where everyone is given the same paint-by-numbers picture and two colors, gray and grey.
    Viva the Revolucion! Viva the piano fish!

  • Haha! Was afraid these legal matters would surface Ken. As the courts are
    being upheld in dispute over it being a “revolution” or “de-evolution”.
    But in an UNANIMOUS decision…the phrase “Artist Penal Colony” was outlawed…putting the first amendment under review.

    thank you so much for the Guide, I don’t know what I would have done, should I have not been able to see this most important piece of information. It should be housed in every library and passed down from generation to generation. I have never tried it myself, but imagine it’s a rather delicious activity to which I am aspiring :)

  • Jump right in Karin…we are all beginners!
    Best thing to remember about playing the piano fish is…the more we practice the worse we get. Be sure to hang the “Best Thing To Remember” page on the fridge. This page is BACKED with a magnet (for your convenience…of course!!!)

  • ohh Tammera!…this is not “so much like life”!!!! YOU HAVE ARRIVED! This is it!!! Your self starter attitude is quite apparent by starting immediately. You may skip the “Getting Started” section and read ahead to “I Can’t Believe I’m Doing This”
