I've already addressed this several times. Clearly, the performers matter. Otherwise, I wouldn't have mentioned it. You classical enthusiasts don't know what it's like for a beginner. You go on and on about which car manufacturer (performer) is the best. But the beginner doesn't even know the difference between compact, sedan and SUV (etudes, concertos and symphonies). How many times to do I need to repeat myself. This is for beginners. BEGINNERS.
EDIT: Actually, you know what. I've been wasting my time. No beginners seem interested and it's just a bunch of experts chiming in with their 2 cents. So, why don't you guys just handle it then?
i'm a classical beginner. just wanted to tell you thanks for starting this thread.
i'm going to go check out that 20 minute video that ericC recommended.
