On a whim, I decided to keep my Mac at a distance from the Steinway, walk over to the piano without being too conspicuous, and offhandedly play the Bach Prelude in C from the Well Tempered Clavier. Since I hadn't yet mastered the editing side of iMovie, I figured a majestic lead into the playing would still work even with my back turned to the camera as I made my way to the piano bench.<a target="_blank" href=""><img width=350 src="" alt="" title="1042" width="300" height="168" class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-19269" /></a>

In any case, I would preserve unedited moments with the flick of my Sony Cyber-shot digital if I had successfully trimmed the footage.

So here's how it played out after I had managed editing and uploading. (A sigh of relief!)
