A few things about the Piano.

So the Piano in Tifa's house I know you play it as tifa later in the game to get her weapon or something so as Cloud earlier in the game i played the melody you need to get Tifa's weapon and he says "hmm..sounds familiar" then for some reason i thought "gee,why not play it backwards?" so i did..and...and..It says "hmm, whats this" You find a stash of Tifa's money that is 1 gil. pretty sweet huh is this a known thing?

Yeah and I think if you go back on the third disk you can find a note from Zangan

You get Tifa's level 4 limit break by playing the tune as Cloud, after the events in the lifestream.

Playing the piano other times than that will randomly give you "tifa's secret savings" of 1 gil. You can also get her secret savings multiple times. I don't think it matters what you play, you can still end up getting it.

Also, if during the flashback early in the game you have Cloud "just jam out" where you get to manually play it, then later when Tifa is the lead you can get an Elemental materia from the piano (I'm not sure, but you may have to play the tune during the flashback).

You just have to choose "jam on it" as Cloud during the flashback, doesn't matter what you actually play.

In the flashback Cloud gets the first opportunity to play the Piano in Tifa's
room. Memorize the tune and it will bebefit you later.

When you get to Nibelheim the first time for real, you can play Tifa's Piano
again. The following sequence iw the tune as heard in the flashback:

X, [], Triangle, L1+Triangle, L1+[], X, [], Triangle, L1+X, O, X, [], X.

If you play this sequence THREE times, you will get 1 gil from the Piano, aka
Tifa's Secret savings. It's important you get this. Why? Read on..

When you're in control of Tifa as the team's leader, head back to Nibelheim and
inspect the Piano again. You'll receive the Elemental Materia, but ONLY if
you've gotten the 1 gil earlier.

And lastly, as most people know, after you've got Cloud back, head back to
Nibelheim, with Tifa in your party, and play the tune again. You'll get Tifa's
Final Limit Break, Final Heaven, and a letter from Zangan, her teacher.

This is false. The 1 gil has no connection to the tune or anything else. You'll randomly get it after playing, regardless of what you play. And you can get it more than once.

To get the elemental materia all you have to do is have Cloud choose to "jam" on the piano during the flashback (doesn't matter what you play), and then check the piano when Tifa is the party leader. You do not need to have gotten the 1 gil before this, nor do you need to have ever played the tune either.

The tune itself is only necessary to get Tifa's limit manual. It has no connection to the 1 gil or the elemental materia.
