Thanks for viewing this page! Give the flash a few seconds to load (depending on your connection speed.)

To play, click and drag your mouse across the hexagon board. For the best results, move your mouse in straight lines along the diagonal rows of hexagons.

You should sound like Jordan Rudess in no time!

To those of you who may not be exactly music experts but are still musically curious, feel free to express your views, e.g. features you may like to have added. Someone suggested being able to write music.

But, to those of you who are all "O NOES BLAM THIS CRAP" because you have no clue what this is or don't know what you are doing, pleased don't rate or comment on this submission. Honestly. Don't embarrass yourself and go take a music lesson, THEN maybe your input will be worth anything.

Stated In the description, the author said that you must 'take a fucking music lesson' in order to be able to play this?

This disgusts me, and the arrogance pisses me of.

Not only does the arrogance piss me off, but give a time to justify why this is god-aweful,

its just a series of hexagonal notes, were one has to drag his mouse along it which results in a godaweful NOISE THAT IS PAINFULL TO YOUR EARS, and I can see no one with any form of musical ablilty could benefit from this, as you cannot generate your own music, only the notes, which MUST be playe via dragging your mouse diagonally across the screen?

Although im not musical, I think that this 'game' would not appeal to 89% of the newgrounds population,

and yet im still asking myself, or for someone to actually say

..What is this actually?

though there is a small notation mistake which i think will have not the slightest significance to most people, but still, in the minor triad, you used an augmented second instead of a minor third, that is, you wrote c, d# , g, for the c minor triad, when it should be c, mb, g.

anyway, a great... thing, indeed, really good to fool around for a while and have fun with some music, and maybe even go further if you were to explore it enough.

It seems too dificult for 75% of the newgrounders but its a nice change of pace from the idiot entries i've seen earlier. i'll give it a decent score so other people can try to make sence with this. 7/10 4/5

Fukkin Brilliant

5/5 10/10

Its beautiful. pretty much all the scales needed, and blends 2 together. (Final Fantasy Scale probs a bit too far X]) u can transpose AND change sustainability. Im not a very good keyboardist myself, but i play guitar and write music so i can see this for what it is meant to be. Well Done.
Only Thing i can suggest is add a variety of tones???

Oh and Hats off for Mentioning Jordan Rudess. DT fukkin rule m8 !!!!
