There's a plaque in my music room that reads: "There is nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the music plays itself." Johann Sebastian Bach As if . . .

I like very much the Shigeru patches on the CA97 and also the EX Concert, but to be honest I also use pretty much other patches like the Pop Grands, Jazz, Standard and a few others and I cannot truly say they are less quality or less playable than th

I'm also thinking I'll go through level 5. With the addition of appropriate level repertoire, I can't see how any of it would be a waste of time. There really is a lot of small bits of information scattered within PA that I now appreciate. I think it

If the pinblock can't hold a tuning, why would you buy this piano? There are many decent pianos, much newer and in good condition, that you can buy for $1500.

I would love for an e perished Bach player to chime in. His music looks so simple on paper, but when the fingers hit the keys and the eyes hit the page, by brain is scrambled. I've thought of taking one month to read nothing but Bach. Maybe my brain

Nice work! - I've also thought about the limitation of 8 setpoints... Since the Verituner seems to create the tuning from the temperament out both ways, it should be possible to use two tuning files, if needed for difficult scales. That would give t

Hi all, I recently ordered WTC book 2 on amazon, but it won't get here for another 2 weeks. Does anyone happen to have the fingering markings for this fugue? I was working out my own fingering, but I'm not confident that it's the most economical a

Jason, I was just at a concert the other night with two extremely good pianists performing two hours of Bach (solo works, alternating pianists.) They both used the score for every piece. So that's one thing. I personally am much more secure playing
