Betreff: Re: how to make keyboards look more cool

When I was teaching myself keyboard I took a shortcut
and put little sparkley Japenese cartoon stickers on
each key to let me know which keys belong to what
scales.  Worked like a charm and was a hit with the
kids.  I can pretty much play without them now, but
they're still there.

Am I cool?
