Stories about people's Für Elise experiences
Für Elise played by ear from the fancy watch
This story was submitted by K. C. and was added around January 2008.
When I was a kid, I had a watch, my first very-fancy watch. It played Fur Elise if you pressed a button combination. I had taken piano lessons, but never really pursued it. Fur Elise, from that watch, was the very first thing I ever learned to play by ear (one of the very few). The portion played by the watch wasn't very long, so I only learned the small portion and have since lost any ability to play by ear. But I still remember how to play that, after 20 years.
