Wow, great responses. Appreciate the in depth explanation of the Augmented B. I tend to only think about music theory once I can play a piece, which I'm sure is putting the cart before the horse. Holding down two notes with middle fingers, while r

Tcherepnin, Gretchaninoff and some other Russian composers wrote a number of teaching pieces in late Romantic style that would be accessible to late beginners/early intermediates. You might want to look at a few things by them. It's a different world

Thanks, James. I had an opportunity to try just CN24 and Roland HP504 (so older version vs higher one). I am not a pianist (I play guitar), but still the action and sound of Kawai seemed to me better. But there are very nice reviews of Roland RP401 (

More information on the piano is generally more helpful when asking for assistance. "Weber vertical" can indicate a 120 year old upright made in the US, or a new or 30 year old piano manufactured in Korea. I assume you are referring to the

A good link to an article or video would be good about arm weight (google returns loads of results...what one to trust tho?...) With guitar you use your arm and shoulders to help the fretting hand. I'd imagine it's along the same lines
