Today was an especially difficult day with work and the babies at home. It took a lot of effort to accomplish very little on both fronts, and it felt like a long battle. And then I had to get back to reading and writing for work again late in the eve

I agree that the alfred's method relies a bit too heavily on chords and that the pieces can be a bit cheesy. I'm also a big fan of Rachel Jimenz's "Fundamental Keys" method, which I think in many ways suffers from the opposite problem (gre

Jump to new posts Re: Problem with evenness in scales by fizikisto @ 39 minutes 42 seconds ago

I agree. if your technique is failing you, it likely means you are trying to go too fast too soon. Slow down, and work on getting it right. speed will come with relaxation and time. Also, note that you may find that your speed waxes and wanes.

The arc of motion of the pedal rod is from front to back, not side to side. So there is none to little sideways pressure the actuation of the pedal can exert on the trap lever. If the trap lever pivot pin holes are too loose, this will allow the leve

I botched that PDC explanaton a bit. With PDC on, and if Reaper treated the audio interface output latency as a "plugin latency", then it should in fact record the MIDI events earlier, to compensate, but as far as I can see, it doesn't. (wh

Having just recently learned Chopin's Op.25 No.6 Etude, I can say that if your hands are relaxed and flexible, just about any fingering can be played legato. All the suggestions here would work provided you practice them a few times. I will add tho

Spinets can be a challenge to tune, they can punish or reward you for "setting the pin" and getting the sl/nsl tension balance correct. Some test blows after tuning will show how you've done. I would almost be more concerned with gett
