    If you try a search on Google you'll get:

    7 results for "doesn't sound like piano to me"
    6 results for "doesn't sound like a piano to me"

    Which way is English?

    Both are acceptable English phrases.

    I have too many questions to ask all of them here. So if it's a decisive win I usually trust Google.
    And this forum has restrictive rules. Say I have a question that I do not post here just because it is about a joke which I read on the Internet and which is a little obscene.

    Still thanks for the warning.

    It is not. You misquoted my post. Even if not constructed correctly mine was a conditional sentence.
