  1. This opinion is likely to be pretty unpopular on this board and seemingly in the music industry altogether, but I was hoping throughout the entire electoral season that Coldplay would not endorse or speak politically. I cannot stand when entertainers become political, and to me, their opinions on that subject matter couldn't be any less welcome. I love Coldplay pretty much more than anything, and I know that in the back of my mind we probably have incredibly different views on politics, but I just prefer it to not even come up because it will leave a bitter taste in my mouth. Yes, I respect ot
  2. I don't know if he did or did not, but would Chris have the audacity to lip-sync Glastonbury?
  3. Well if you never try, you'll never know right? ;) I don't see it as stalkerish to be honest. I see it as a guy who knows he's got this one life, and if he felt like in that fleeting instance there was something definitely there then I salute him for doing everything he can to try to get in contact with this woman. The worst thing on Earth is the feeling of regret.
  4. I started learning when I was 18. It's never too late, seriously.
  5. 1. As long as the keyboard has a decent action (realistically weighted keys) you should be able to make a transition to the piano, it may not be seamless, but you would get the hang of it quicker than if you were playing a keyboard without weighted keys. 2. No right or wrong answer here, it depends on how much you're willing to spend, how much space you have, how many people you live with, etc. If you have a ton of space and have some money, you can't beat the sound of an acoustic but there are definite drawbacks (very heavy, must be tuned, no volume control other than key dynamics). Digit
  6. Loved Everglow played solo -- think this is the way the song should be played. So much emotion packed into that stripped performance.
  7. Patiently waiting for the upload to watch -- been looking forward to this concert for so long -- thanks in advance to Coldplaying staff to bring it to everyone -- greatly appreciated.
  8. It's definitely an acoustic Kawai 48" Upright w/ MIDI capability. They moved away from the Yamaha GT20 digital hybrid after the MX era. If you see pictures of the back of the Kawai they are using, you'll see the wooden soundboard which also is a give-away that it's an acoustic. The sound itself is also a lot warmer than the insanely bright digital samples from the MP9000 from AROBTTH-MX, which is probably part of the reason it's harder to hear during live shows as it's not so "clangy." That being said, I like the switch to acoustic -- it sounds a lot more natural and not terribly over-powering
  9. The band was on point tonight, incredible set. They were really feeling it. Powerful performance.
  10. I think this is a very reasonable thought.
  11. Tom Odell. Can't wait for his new album.
  12. Agree that HFTW was hilariously bad. It's really disappointing to see them rely so much on backing tracks. Just play the damn piano Chris. You know how.
  13. Mike Gillis to Jim Benning wasn't exactly great. The team has a rebuild in front of them that they will have to commit to.
  14. If he wanted to stick with the same technology but just newer models, he could have went for a Yamaha NU1 which is literally an updated GT20, or maybe a Kawai CS10.
  15. You're right about the MP9000 samples, but I think that applies from basically AROBTTH era through MX. Ghost Stories and onward, Chris ditched the Yamaha GT-20 and went with a silent acoustic upright. If you listen to Clocks, The Scientist, and other piano based songs, it definitely sounds like he is playing an acoustic piano (the sound isn't nearly as insanely bright as the MP9000 samples seemed to be), but he has the versatility of MIDI for Fix You, etc. I can't with 100% certainty confirm that this is the case, but I am pretty sure, otherwise he likely would have kept the GT-20s as they are
  16. This is one of the better quality Fix You recordings that has popped up from the 3/31/16 gig so far. You can hear Chris in pretty good quality throughout the entire thing. To be honest, I like that they are switching it up a bit, and I even like the way he is switching up how he is singing it so far. ---- Great recording of The Scientist
  17. So glad The Scientist was played! Can't wait to see some video.
  18. You know, I've been losing interest in the Walking Dead. I still watch every episode, but it's more because I know the story and I feel too invested to stop, not because I am dying to actually watch it, if that makes sense. Here I am though, waiting to watch it.
  19. edited the post, on the first fill, when you hit the bolded B, you're playing A octaves on base, not B -- my bad.
  20. Been meaning to respond to this.. about the fill after the first verse. So your right hand will be on the octave above middle C. You will play (right hand): D, B, D, B, F#, D, B, G#, B, F# First note, you will play C# octaves on base with left hand (bolded D above), all the way until you reach the bolded B (bolded B above), where you switch to A octaves on base. That is the first part of the fill.. The second part is (and it's important to note on the second part of this fill, your right hand is moving down an octave to middle C.) right hand: D, B, D, B, G#, D, B, G#, B, E, D#
  21. I think the OP has a fundamental misunderstanding of the album. I don't really think it is Chris flaunting his lifestyle in his fans' faces. Is he not allowed to experience happiness? To me it sounds like you are not currently happy with the direction your life is trending towards, and for that reason perhaps you're not able to relate to this album like you have other albums in the past. Believe me when I say I am not trying to label you or attempt to say that I think I know who you are and what you are struggling with, but I am trying to put myself in your shoes with what I have been given in
  22. Unfortunately, the answer is no. When you are using VSTs, you're turning your digital piano into a midi keyboard, so all of the inputs are registered on your computer, which is where the VST sound will be coming from. The best option would be to find a good set of headphones or a higher end stereo system that you can use with your computer to help surround you in the sound.
