I'm a fermata

We clap rhythms to songs we know 

guessing which, as coffee fills the air.

The opening to Eine kleine nachtmusik stumped me this morning.

Nerdling games I know.

I'm a fermata, so hold me.

  3. Oh, I would really like this game, I think!! In fact, I have the desire not to teach it to my grandchildren. I do think Eine kleine nachtmusik would be hard to guess.

  10. Sounds a bit like "Name that Tune!" Not a music reader, had to look up the term "fermata"(when I could've just looked at Brian's comment!) Love learning new words. Perfect little moment in time shared. Nicely done indeed.

  14. What a lovely game, and how nice that you're both musicians! I like the play on words with "fermata" (I love how music has Italian words, fermata literally meaning to stop or hold ... well, I just love words :)

  15. OK...guess this one by a German composer ....non musicians only know the famous slow movement of the piano sonata

    Left Hand...ta tay ti ta te ti ta te ti ta te ti ta te ti .....and on and on the triplets go until the end.

    It does not matter how many pianos you own because at this stage you cannot find the keys to any of them:)

  18. Now, I not only wish I had music lessons as a child, but that I also knew the game! .. sad face,
    ha. smiles.. games are so fun, too bad we don't play enough as adults as we did when we were kids.
