Stick to topic, refrain from personal insults & this would be an valuable topic. Don't expect me to do nothing when you insult me only to make your point. I don't insult you to make mine.

I applied my guitar knowledge to my keyboard. Chords, progressions, chord substitution, and improvising came easy for me. The first thing I did was to play two octave scales in all keys, spending more time on the most used. I love having to solve so I did not have much of problem with the operating system

In my most active days I worked with Technics keyboards. I was part of a group of ten Technics keyboard players; I taught five of them the basics and some. Latter three of my friends passed away, they left me with their Kn7000 keyboards. I was honored.

My opinion:
Learning all about construction of chords, chord progressions, and chord substitutions should be a must for keyboard players. Melody seem to go from my head to my hand; “If you can whistle it you can find it on the keyboard”. That leaves the harmony – the chords. This does not help your singing, or the ability to feel the audience, or the inward excitement – but it can add a lot to your playing.

My selection of chords can control/effect a musician’s improvised soloing.

I was reminded of this standing there watching the local weekly Sam Ash talent show tonight in the store....open to any and all. I think the only requirement was that you don't know the first thing about music and even less about how to play music to an audience.

I think Chas just might qualify for the Donald Trump of the SynthZone at this point!
