Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
my thought was that the keyboard is never star of the show, for typical modern band setting its vocals, guitar, bass and drums with some fill in key effects. I see bands use "trash" keys and it works more than just fine. I'm biased though

Dennis, Sorry if that was confusing. I was using the "+" to indicate the augmented triad, i.e, triad with raised 5th: C+ = (C E G#). So in the key of F, V+ = C+ = (C E G#), and in the key of A, which is a major third up, V+ = E+ = (E
