I actually do understand how it works, i'm not just memorizing 'em. Minor = Key note, then 2 notes higher, then 3 notes higher whereas Major = Key note, then 3 notes higher, then 2 notes higher. This way, I can easily figure out that Am = A-C-E, wher

The DGX-650 has a "weighted hammer action" -- the GHS action, same as the Yamaha P105 and several other Yamaha's. It's lighter than many other DP's, but it's still trying to emulate an acoustic piano. Quote: . . . You want the muscles in

Composition in university is approached differently these days, than in the past. These days, in America, it is more about bashing and thrashing around without functional knowledge, and that is indeed in an attempt not duplicating the work of others.
