Piano Things

Post by Gleena » Sat Sep 14, 2013 6:34 am

As mentioned, my gorgeous friend and his husband are moving back to the UK.

I have a shiny newish, full sized keyboard with weighted keys now! It's ace! It came with a massive nice headset and everything. I'm really very excited, and trying to think of a name for it.

I...haven't touched one in more than 20 years.

As per the guitar thread, are there any good teaching websites out there someone would recommend? I have a tablet, maybe an app? App doesn't have to be free.

I've been playing the scales I remember (C, G, F) but now my hands are kind of hurty so I stopped for today.

Would seriously love any recommends you can give me. I'll never be Matt Nassir or anything, but I seriously want to have fun with this thing. :)

Ahhhh! I'm so happy you are all pianoish now!

Actually, the thing I would recommend is Garage Band. There is this nifty arpeggionator that's quite helpful in terms of finding out what sounds right. I have been dicking around a LOT with GB. It's not the BEST for a lot of things (i.e. recording vocals and not sounding nasaly), but it's so fun for piano.

Eeeee have fun!
