Does anyone here play piano?

If so, can you play Flight of the Bumble Bee?
I'm trying to learn it on guitar, but it's too fast even for me!

How hard is it to learn on piano?

I DO PLAY THE PIANO!!!

Just to give you some advise: it's REALLY, REALLY hard. What is the hardest song you know to play in guitar, I'll tell you how far away it is from the bumblebee.
I've finished learning a few weeks ago "Arabesque" from Debussy, don't knwo if you've heard it. THAT is a very difficult song but it's light years away from the bumblee one. I'm now learning, "LA Campanella" from Liszt.

Flight of the bumblebee is only coming straight at you from 1/5 of the Mighty as one of the greatest compositions of all time!!!!!

Playing "Flight of the Injured Bumblebee" for piano is indeed tough but its a nothing short of a nightmare on guitar.

I've seen a tab of it played by Nuno Bettencourt... I am not even going to try.

flight of the bumblebee is responsible for nearly three months of a slow, torturous hell period of my life. the mention of it still makes me shudder. Yes, I eventually played it. Could I now? Absolutely not.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

I heard this version of it today. I checked out the tab, and it says that he's not actually playing that fast, he's using a delay (which luckely i have)

I think i can pull it off though! (yes, i'm cocky, but i have to be lol)

I heard a recording of John Petrucci from Dream Theater playing it, and he played it live with absolutely no mistakes!

ok, i've been practicing it for almost two hours now, and to tell you the truth (not to sound cocky) it doesn't seem that hard to learn.

I already learned about half of the notes. The tempo isn't as fast as i thought it was. Now that i listened to it, it's just the drum machine that makes it sound fast. I'm used to shredding, and i think i might just be able to learn this!
