To me, this is one of the hardest things to learn about playing a piano. At times, the hands have to work independently, yet in synchronization with each other. As M3G said, it takes practice and overcoming the awkwardness of it. Kind of like chewi

I am a piano technician who is doing research to try and develop better ways of tuning a piano. I have a couple of surveys and tests on my website and need to gather data on what people hear. You do not need to be a tuner or even a musician. Here a

After being stuck on this one for a while, I learned it by separating each beat into either LH, RH, or BOTH. It was a little bit awkward, but it worked. Don't know if this answers your question though.

I hear you, but the jury is still out on whether "writing" with an ETD gives a better novel. I had a long talk with a representative from CyberTuner who was bashing TuneLab saying their machine was superior to all the others. After I drill

Sally's advice is spot on. However, did you buy from a dealer? What was done in the "reconditioning" (a sometimes 'dangerous' word)? Who did the reconditioning?

I have a Kawai CA65 and an old Gaveau acoustic upright piano. The acoustic was from the entry level segment of the Gaveau line, so nothing fancy like the Yamaha U line, not to mention more than 100 years old (purchase price $400). I enjoy the acou

IMHO ETD's don't tune poorly scaled pianos well. Maybe the RPT test should be done on a spinet. A master and apprentice can get similar results when dealing with quality materials, tools, and situations, but the master will always do better with in
