Mike: if yer referrin' to Doc Williamson, I'd only be guessin',and then I'd say he's tryin' to cram his gig into a store-launching career,cuz he's sure been subterranean since he started his store. Maybe I'll try callin' him by phone this weekend & get my laughin' fix.

But the piano that I grew up with (in my mother's living room) was always in really bad shape. We never once had it tuned, and 6 of the black keys were broken off (and were flush with the white keys). Plus, many of the keys stuck when you played them, and you had to find the time to pull them back up without losing time.

But that old piano had a sound that I've never found again - not with my pianos, nor any other piano I've ever played. And sometimes I find myself longing for some ancient upright piano whose hammers sound as if they are covered in metal.

Congrats on your new piano!!!

Kevin

particular chord type (major 9th)...What I meant to say was finding
and becoming fluent with all the ~inversions~. And no, all my efforts
are with the purpose of playing the piano. I never have been able to
do much with the guitar. (Although it's one of my favorite instruments) I play some harp, but I don't get into much theory
with that, other than to determine which key of harp is required
for the key the tune is in. Mike

I note you saying you are finding chords using the piano (do you mean finding chords for your guitar playing, or other instrument ?)

The piano is a good instrument to "visualise" where the notes are / should be from one key to another.

I began playing guitar and piano at the same age. I learnt blues from two different perspectives and this helped overall.
If I couldn't find a note on the guitar (relative to a key or chord) I'd imagine where it would be on the piano, to work things out.
I'd do the same for the piano, working out where a note would be on the guitar.

My main key on piano was C, my main key on guitar was E.
Thus if trying to work out something in C on piano, I'd have to mentally transpose into E, find the note, and transpose that note back into C !! And the opposite way for finding a note from the guitar to piano !!!

Daft, I know, but it worked well for me !!

Cheap fix for the stripped keys? Fill 'em in and smooth 'em with something like J-B Weld. Won't be pretty, though.
