Are we classifying the piano as a percussion instrument for this theme's purposes?

Urm, no. I started clearly from the beginning what I wanted. But good job if he wants to improve the themes. There are various instruments that can add to rhythm more than drums and other percussions. Any instrument that has organ origin should be forbidden.

I guess piano lies in the category 'plucked strings' :p

Harpsichord lies in the category plucked strings. Piano lies in the category struck strings, which "technically" makes it a percussion instrument.

Sort of in the same way that a tomato is "technically" a fruit :p

Very good, we are finally talking music. The piano would have to be part of percussion.

I love the trophy :lol:

No percussion, and probably no piano. OK, shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Beatboxing is permitted? Farting?

just imagine erasing the percussion section of a band or ensemble. so it's the non-melodic percussion i'd like to avoid, thus giving songs and genres a chance that normally go under, like e.g. ambient, folk, classical or, yes joris, a cappella. but you can find songs without drums in any genre. of course the songs can still have a rhythm, even without drums.

this list is pretty good as a reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_percussion_instruments

the piano is okay for this game, because as the list itself says: "A keyboard instrument, not normally part of a percussion section but listed as percussion in some older classifications, and stringed in others". it's a melodic instrument and, as silver persioan points out, only "technically" a percussion instrument.

I'd leave piano and keyboards in the game because if you exclude them, you'd have to get rid of any stringed instrument by nature of needing to use implements for sonic induction, or finger plucking/strumming.

This theme is out of my comfort zone but finally I found something punchy enough.
