FreeSoFreeJMascisWikiUserLUMPENPROLETARIATI used to sneak into the piano rooms at Modesto Junior College.  Thanks to a kind soul, who shared his passcode with me to get into the locked closet-like piano rooms.  (At the College of San Mateo, the piano rooms were also closet-like, but they were left unlocked during school hours.)

I’d just punch in the code in the door’s keypad, sit down at an upright piano, and run through J Mascis‘ “Everybody Lets Me Down.”  That song translates brilliantly to a stripped-down piano accompaniment.  Give it a go.
