If I could contribute anything here, I'd say a good way to play outside is just to play (quote) melodies that may not fit with the changes of the song you're playing. I've heard my teacher Jean-Michel Pilc quote Spain (in 4/4) over Someday My Prince

Make sure you are playing a measured trill, that is, a trill with a specified number of notes and not an unmeasured trill with a random number of notes. Choose two or possibly three notes in the RH per one LH eighth note.

Hey Kurtz, You must have been talking to the Yamaha tech who repaired my GT1! That's exactly what I ended up paying. The killer part is, I bought the Kawai before he finished repairs.......don't ask. I tried to rationalize that by thinking the next

Thanks! I'm still very much interested how the two actions compare. I expect the rh3 would be pretty close to what it should be now, with the counterweights. As for the trills, I just saw Kawai's demo video for the CN35 and the choice of music pretty

Interesting, normally I hear a pitch drop right after the attack. That is also what I expect as the string tension raises a little with the attack as the string gets longer (it's bending a bit) Is the pitch rise immediately after the attack or later

The missing fundamental can also be practically observed at the piano. eg: if you were to play a dominant 7th chord in 1st inversion, take Eb7 (so from lowest to highest note we have G,Bb,Db and Eb) you can think of these notes as representing the 5t

I'd second Hugh's point about playing what you love on the piano so that you will love playing the piano. I wouldn't worry too much about it being the appropriate sequencing or perfect level(particularly if you are not bee-lining to Juilliard entran
