Tusen takk! 😊 Så lett å forstå på denne måten. Kjøpt piano og nå skal det øves!


Knut E, 10.07.2020

Dette har gitt meg mye spilleglede! Fantastisk at dette er gjort tilgjengelig på denne måten.

Gleder meg til å prøve ut - grepene - denne vidunderlige sangen som Radka Toneff tolket helt unikt. Og hennes vesen - møtte henne en gang - alvoret, det innadvendte, skjønnheten - ja alt dette preger hennes tolkninger

Utruleg bra! Og dette fann eg heilt tilfeldig! Takk!


Stig, 10.06.2020

Så utrolig bra! Dette gleder jeg meg til å bruke!

Herre e supert!

Har lagt på en mulighet for å la siden rulle sakte mens du spiller. Rett over selve teksten kan du skyve på et håndtak for å styre hastigheten. Stopp ved å sette den helt til venstre.

En MEGAtakk til deg for innsatsen du har lagt ned og for spesielt to sanger jeg har lett etter lenge: "Blå salme" og "Sommernatt ved fjorden". Endelig kan jeg spille dem på gitar og få dem til å høres noenlunde riktig ut (evnt ulyder skyldes helt og holdent mitt "glad amatør"-gitarnivå.hehe). Gleder meg til å se hva mer du legger ut :) Med vennlig hilsen Are
