I don't care for the little keys. But the compact size is neat and they sound quite good. I also like the physical tweaking for fx. The YC is very fun, love the little silver flip switch for the rotary effect. And the CP is good fun too. Ah, but

Suggestion: practice the harmony and block the arpeggiated left hand. Practice this everyday, then play as written. Have both hands in position before playing. You are going to do very well. I wish you the best.
