It's Pianner
I was confused by the upright bit. As opposed to what?
In an upright piano, the strings are strung vertically to make the instrument more compact, which allows the piano to be played in a limited space. In contrast, the grand piano retains the shape of the original pianoforte in which the strings are strung horizontally, and has a greater potential for expression.
Thanks very much, I genuinely didn't know that.
Neither did I till I Googled it. I knew the shape thing and that an upright pianner was basically a pub pianner but that's all. Every day's a school day

Also, if you pour red wine into a grand piano it has much more effect than an upright, where it mostly just does straight through. Some Guy told me that.

Wouldn't waste red wine on such a gesture. Maybe white though :approve:
