How to Use the Auto-Accompaniment on Your Keyboard

How to Use the Auto-Accompaniment on Your Keyboard

I'm using a very inexpensive Yamaha PSR 78 keyboard to illustrate how to play using Yamaha's Auto-Accompaniment feature, something almost all keyboard's have these days. You use chords in your left hand and play the melody in the right hand. This is an older Yamaha keyboard, a PSR 78, I believe, and I show you how to use this to create interesting tunes easily. The piano is a very hard instrument to play but it has some great "press." I believe that our world would be better off if everyone could make their own music as a hobby. It's cheap and easy to do with just a little training.

Three Huge Reasons to Learn Common Chords!

Three Huge Reasons to Learn Common Chords!

Chords are very popular and this video is all about them - using them and why only a few that are crucial to you enjoyment of making your favorite music. Why those huge chord books are mostly useless as well any guilt about them. I cover how to really learn chords . I like to say that "common chords" are "common." I explain how knowing chords improves your reading of music, your memorization, and your appreciation of music itself, whatever kind of music you enjoy. There are lots more facts at danstarr.com

A digital keyboard is a winner!

A digital keyboard is a winner!

Why digital keyboards are an advance over acoustic pianos. Now I recognize that this is a minority position, but I still hold to it, as I play anything with a key on it (other than accordion) There is much more info at my website: danstarr.com. I say that this world should have more people making music rather than just listening to it. It's easy with just a bit of training. Still, you really should simply buy a cheapo keyboard and learn to use it and then just make more music - for free! Perhaps you think that the sounds of keyboards are lousy. That was then, this is NOW!
