I scribbled out some combinations having 6 in the top voice early this morning before having my coffee. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3blpq200udq2zrd/z%20puzzle.jpg?dl=0 Most of them had problems like parallel fifths, a Tonic without a doubled root. No.

I hope you're not working on client back actions with this level of experience.. You can't regulate dampers off the tray. Many have twist or warp; all have felt. Most pianos do not have the ability to fine regulate to the key end (except with punchi

I believe Mike Martin said the PX-560 would not be able to play back PX5S tones, but that the PX-560 would be capable of creating tones that would sound like they were made on the PX5S. By the way,you will find many of the same rhythms and accompanim

Slash chords are used more as convenience for the player than anything. Chords themselves (and music as a whole) have patterns and guides but no hard rules. You could play any note you want under a chord, you might have a chromatic run in the base

Well, I changed the setting of the video to 0.5 speed and sat in front of the computer with my melodica until I figured it out. I've transcribed quite a bit, so only 5-10 seconds isn't too challenging. You could do it, too, with some practice. I wis

After listening to Greg Anderson play Etude #13 I liked it so much I purchased the score. Sadly, it is out of my reach - quite literally. I cannot reach a 10th and there are many of them. Rolling them just doesn't sound right.

Thanks for sharing this. It ties in with my feeling that if humidity and temperature are stable, storing the piano should not be an issue. Now whether the storage facilities can be trusted 100% to achieve that is another story... I live in NYC where

The RX-2 won't be 2015, more like 2013 - but still might be new/never sold before. The 2015 model would be GX-2. Of these two pianos, the CX5 will have a bigger richer sound - especially in the bass, but a 30 year old piano should be quite a bit chea
