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!
