Nuthin' like primo equipment to motivate ya',601! I wanna play it,too! I'm very lucky,as well: my all-time favorite piano to play was a 1946 9-foot Steinway grand,on stage at the college I went to. My second all-time favorite is the Yammy digital console I got in my living room,with or without the headphones.

Just like on the guitar, the notes of an extended chord on the keyboard don't have to all be "in order." Mixing 'em up a bit can make 'em easier to reach.

That would be what they call an "inverted" 9th,I believe. A decent piano player should be able to reach a 9th,however,depending on what keys he's playin' in the middle. To have a 10 key reach,you prob'ly need either a wide hand,or long fingers,or both; I can't do it.

A chord's a continuum of all the notes in that chord running up and down the keyboard. Any combination of them you can reach works.

Such a utilitarian,Rico! That attitude will get you some versions of chords that just don't sound as good as other variations. The notes that stand out in the chord will change,depending on how you play it,me bucko!

I kinda enjoy trying different ways of fingering my organ. I've just been working on using both hands together on it. I'm still having coordination problems with that. I start getting into it, it starts feeling good, then I forget what I'm doing and lose the rhythm.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Apr-07-06 AT 08:18 PM (EST)]Oh, gross me out.
601! I listened to your songs on CD Baby, you sound great!!! I really liked it. And I was impressed that you are a working man and have reached a high level and continue to grow considering work (and I bet you work hard) and raising a family. More power to you. I liked the songs with stories. I was wondering about the drums. Are those digital, cause they sound like it to me. I feel like I should work harder now.

They say that creativity and the creative force is the same as the sexual force. So, Ricochet, you must be really creative!!!
