That's fun, and looks like you had fun playing this intermezzo.  Those certainly are some LH arpeggios, indeed.

What's the significance of the title, though?
My name is Nellie, and I take pride in helping protect the children of my community through active leadership roles in my local church and in the Boy Scouts of America.  Bad word make me sad.

I'm sorry... but I am one of those proud people who have never to this day ever played that Dr. Dre piece... so much so, I don't even know the title of what you were playing in the RH.

I'm also one of those proud people who would NEVER bastardise the great music of Beethoven by playing something as cheesy and awful as that.

Seth Everman's original Still Dre skit on YouTube is cool, you should watch it. All of the imitators are cringe.

Nice LH arpeggios though.

Still Dre is a track by Dr. Dre with a piano ostinato thatís attained Ďinternet iconí status, itís what starts happening in the right hand after the opening bars :)

Sorry to have offended your sensibilities! Thanks for disliking all of my videos, though, I appreciate the effort.

Personally I think this kind of stuff is fun! Looking forward to see what else you come up with. Can you combine Beethoven with Justin Bieber, just to really offend the purists?  ;D

Excuse me? I'm not that petty. I did put a dislike on the Dr Dre video, but I haven't bothered looking up your other videos.
