Bach pretty much paved the way for that kind of thing. It doesn't surprise me that he's the hardest to get down. His music was a little before his time. I want to get Chopin and Tchaikovsky down and maybe Franz Liszt down too before I even begin to start on Bach. Speed in which they play is perhaps the most impressive. I got the speed down pat a couple of Chopin songs. Though I still find my fingers tumbling over and getting entangled with each other sometimes. What. How well do you play?

Thank you again! You're very helpful! I've actually heard that Chopin has the most difficult music to play. I partially agree, though the difficult part of "tristesse (my favorite Chopin song) I picked up surprisingly easy. Have you had any difficulty or do you think Bach is a more difficult repertoire?

I will Google them and collect as many as I can!

As to the present: thank you very much! His rendition is absolutely beautiful! Believe it or not, I'm having difficulty playing that song. I think it requires a little more talent than I definately don't have.

I would HIGHLY recommend any of the Paradox games (I have them all). I used to be a hardcore RTS player and I was in the same boat when I first looked at Europa Universalis 3, in that the lack of an on-the-ground battle system was pretty off-putting. But I went ahead and bought it anyway because I needed something to do for the next week, and whoa man, games changed my life. I got over the lack of tactical battles quickly when I came to understand just how deep the strategy elements of the games run, in that you really have to develop a long term 'policy' for how you intend to guide your nation. The games also really promote a 'total' mindset when it comes to your strategic approach, in that there is literally no mechanic of the game that you can afford to ignore. This was the hardest thing for me, because in games like this I tend to completely shuck off anything involving diplomacy and gaining allies and all that.

CK2 is especially good because it is radically different from the other games, in terms of focus. While you still have a fiefdom to run and manage, the major focus of the game is on individual characters (it's almost RPG-like) and their dynasties. So, literally, you spend a lot of the time just debating on how you intend to raise your children. This is especially significant in Sword of Islam, as you will likely have more than wives, and thus many, many sons. Sons that, down the road, will develop jealousy for whoever inherited over them, and could potentially become political enemies (there's also a neat mechanic called decadence that represents your moral legitimacy in the Islamic world, the more sons you have, the harder it is to keep them in line and the more likely you are to have family members embarassing you with their excesses).

So yes, I would recommend it. I haven't gone back to an RTS since I first started playing the Paradox series.

Yo. So this strategy game I love (Crusader Kings 2), released their "Sword of Islam" expansion that allows you to play Muslim rulers of the age, and it's had me on a reading kick.

What's your opinion on Nizari Ismailists? Been reading a lot about them and I think they're pretty neat.
