This reminds me of the Rich Dworsky original, They Don't Want Piano which he played on the 8 November, 2003 edition of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.

Introduction dialogue between Dworsky and Keillor begins at 11:05 in the Real Audio, song begins at 12:02. It has a spoken call-and response with the instrumental musicians, like a big band jazz number. They keep shouting, "No Piano!"

I have had the same experience whenever I have used the microphone search.

I click 'BY MICROPHONE' in the banner; the microphone search loads.

I click 'Record', whistle some notes, and then click 'Stop'. The server thinks, and then a piano roll and keyboard appear below.

If I click 'Play' next to the 'Record' button, I will hear my whistling.

→If I click 'Play' to the right of the piano roll, the piano notes light up, but I hear no piano; I have never heard piano on this page!

When I click search, and the new page opens, I see the speaker icon above the piano keyboard on the results page.
If I click that icon, THEN and only THEN do I hear piano.

Hi Peter,

which keyboard do you mean, Flash ( or JavaScript (

I tried them, and both work for me.

For reproducing your error, it would also be useful to know whether you see any error messages in your JavaScript console, and which browser and OS you were using.

After entering a melody, I clicked on Play and nothing happened. I clicked on something else and a notice popped up to say It is already playing. My audio system is working fine, but I can't listen to my melody. Am I missing something or is there a problem with the website.

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
