Little sidebar here about cheese and doughnuts... When I still lived in Switzerland, there was a hilarious book called "The Xenophobe's Guide to the Swiss." There was actually a large set, and most every country was represented. The iron

I have a 1902 V with newer Ronsen hammers and strings from about 1970. It has the original action. It sounds and feels lovely. I suspect that your feelings about this piano will depend upon your preferred repertoire. I think they are ethereal but n

I recently did some research on the RD-64 and it is on my list for a new stage piano. I really like the SuperNatural piano sounds, and this appears to be a solid type of stage piano with the basic sounds one would need on a gig. What is impressive

Yes, The notes of the A minor chord are A-C-E. This is what is known as the root position of the A-minor chord (with the A on the bottom) Imagine playing A-C-E-A (where the latter A is the note one octave higher than the first A) That would als

Basically get it tuned as often as you can afford. There's no need to get it done say, every week or every month, but you want to try and avoid it starting to howl. I have my piano tuned every 2 to 4 months, and the variance in whether it's 2 mont

I'm starting on "Got Those Blues". It doesn't seem particularly difficult but this is the first time I am really feeling the limitations of my unweighted keyboard. You just can't vary the volume while you're playing with one of those.
