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

How hard is it to learn on piano?

:wavey: 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 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! :eek:

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. :eek:

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! :)
