Would You Buy A Solo Piano Song

As the title says, would you buy a track that has solely a keyboard part? My friend has an amazing track to play(I'll work on posting a sample later) and it would definetly be a challenge on pro mode.
And to clear some things up...
-Guitar and Bass players don't get left out, as they can play whatever parts of the keyboard I chart to each of them to keep them occupied
-I plan on charting the pedal to the kick drum, so that the keyboardist can play both parts simealtaneously, to simulate the real track.
So would you buy it, if it was truly as epic as I claim?
"The Hockey Theme" went for a dollar, and was practically a solo drum song, and it did fine.

    I would buy some songs from the score of Lost just to play the keyboard part...

    Pianos have three pedals, and they're not used rhythmically.

    (Well, outside avant-garde contexts, at least!)

    Let's get 4' 33" by John Cage!!!!

    Seriously, though, I would totally get a solo piano song. I'm a solo keyboardist myself, so I could simulate that by voxboarding the song. :D

    There are a lot of piano/vocal songs I would love to purchase. It all depends on how it sounds, I suppose.

    I'm actually considering signing a local artist to my label to do some piano/vocal music for RBN. So I'm totally up for some of this appearing in the store.

    The more variety and experimental stuff appearing in the RBN, the better. This is the perfect platform for bringing new stuff to music games.

    I need something with the keyboard to compliment it so...

    Option 1.) Find a good guitarist (he (or she) has to play the way that the sound rips through the air and rattles your mind powerful and deep) and have him (or her) do a dueling solo with the piano in the solo section of the song and together on the chorus.

    Option 2.) Find a singer or have the pianist sing and make it piano bar style

    Option 3.) A nice Trumpet playing along with it

    Option 4.) Some bongos
    etc.

    Yes, I also agree.

    And if it's as epic as you claim, hell yeah i'd buy it. I'm usually just a solo player so it wouldn't matter to me. Doubt it would get much play at parties though.

    a lot of (well some) death metal bands have great piano melodies to make them seem less scary.

    example? "The Water Book" by Persefone

    If I could I would sign up Marc Cohn's "Walking In Memphis", as that is very piano/vocal oriented, even if it isn't very rock.

    But yeah, I'm all for piano rock songs.

    Moonlight Sonata

    That'd be about it though...

    Yes I would, but after RB3 and keyboard support. At the moment I don't think it's a good idea to chart keyboard to guitar (playing Queen's Somebody to love felt so wrong) now that we know what's coming in RB3. Funny thing is, it didn't feel this way before.

    I'm not a big fan of trumpets, but now that you say that, I might play some tuba myself for the recording and try to lay down a drum beat that works.
    I'll put the preview up soon

    I would not think of trying it prior to release

    Update: Sorry, scratch that, the artist just texted me saying that on second thought, he doesn't want his song on Rock Band

    With Piano AND Vocals we could get Regina Spektor Huzzah

    Keyvox would be a lot of fun on songs like "Your Song", "Candle in the Wind", and stuff by Sara Barellias for example.

    Or Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis...the list goes on and on.

    My friend made up a really cool piano song. I'll talk to her about it. :)

    For the right song, yep. I've already got a solo guitar song (Upstream by Cory Wong from the RBN).

    I would have to see and hear the song before buying it.

    I'd buy Axel F in a heartbeat if it hit RBN. Probably some good classical stuff I'd buy too.
