Default Taking up piano

I've decided that I want to learn piano, I think it's a really cool instrument.
I tried bass and I found it was frustrating and just not very much fun (I'm sure it would get better as I got better, but still...)
So I'm going to teach myself piano. I already know all the notes from percussion in school, so it's mainly just going to be coordination, using the right fingers, using both hands, etc.
Today I wanted to start off with something fun and laid back, so I started learning wait for sleep by dream theater. (Not at full speed of course!).

I thought it was really fun right off the bat, unlike bass. Using the right fingers came pretty quickly to me (maybe because I took lessons a few yeas ago). The hard part is going to be using both hands at the same time!

Wish me luck!
