Syntax

PLAY: Instrumental Performances

 To stop playing a song, use STOP PLAY.
 Syntax:  () indicates a required field.  {} indicates an optional field.
   PLAY (song) {mood} {ON} {instrument}
   PLAY (Song) {mood} {ON} {instrument} FOR (TARGET)
   PLAY /PERFORM (message)
       To use this option, you must be already successfully playing a song.
       If you aren't skillful enough for that song, /perform will not work.

Available Song types (from easiest to hardest):
scales (ruff), arpeggios (rudiments), ditty, folk, ballad, waltz, lullaby, march, jig, lament, wedding, hymn, rumba, polka, battle, reel, elegy, serenade, minuet, psalm, dirge, gavotte, tango, tarantella, bolero, nocturne, requiem, fantasia, rondo, aria, sonata, and concerto.

Note: For percussion, ruff and rudiments replace scales and arpeggios. You may use either version -- it will default to the correct type for the instrument.

Available Styles/Moods:
off-key, halting, confident, masterful, slow, loud, quiet, quick, fierce, flashy, playful, solemn, mournful, wistful, excited, haunting, romantic, and cheerful.

Off-key and halting styles will make all songs easier to play. Confident and masterful styles will make all songs more difficult to play.

Please be aware that not all 'moods' are compatible with all song types, and some combinations may result in unexpected play styles. In addition, certain combinations can make a particular song easier or more difficult to play. Except as noted above, this varies from song to song.
