Richard, thank you for that in-depth answer. That did help clarify some things about the small differences in minor vs. major...Also, I am from the camp of learning by ear and patterns vs sheet music. I can read some music (previous violin student),

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I have a small Packard Grand, I believe serial# 135,810 (found this stamped into the wood on the underside underneath the keyboard). Could someone tell me the year it was made? Thanks!

Why not learn a scale every fortnight? Or even one a month? Rome wasn't built in a day. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. BTW, learning piano is akin to a thousand-mile journey on foot - with everything from desert to lakes

I don't care about compatibility with the HD-650 because they are strictly for listening to music. The HD-595 will be dedicated to the CFX entirely.
