Escapee: I Tried To Play The Piano

Escapee (re: Baby it's cold outside): I tried to play the piano, took lessons when I was a kid. The lessons were a total grind. I have no idea how people can just walk up to a keyboard, and play anything in any key. I like watching a really good keyboard player and am fascinated with what they do. It's totally beyond me, though. Oh by the way…Don Sausser IS a great keyboard player. He kept me (on drums) from speeding ahead of the band by advising me to watch his foot pedal foot. I still have a couple of tapes I made at the Mica Flats thing long ago.

Question: Did you have music lessons as a kid? Do you still play that instrument?
