How to Buy a Digital Piano

First a bit of history: digital pianos have come a long way in the past 20 years. Back in the good old days, digital pianos sounded bad and the keyboard action was just awful — thankfully all that has changed. Today you can purchase a brand new digital piano for your home for a fraction of the cost of an acoustic upright piano that many families and schools used to have. Not only are digital pianos more portable, they now sound and even feel like concert grand pianos.

The computer is a must for every home. But the fact is, not all families can afford to buy a computer. You’re quite lucky if you have a computer at home. If you want to learn to play the piano, it is possible since you already have a computer. Now, all you need is to purchase a piano. This is an added cost on your part but you can’t really learn to play the piano if you don’t have one at home.

The Process Of Learning To Play Classical Guitar

Many a student of the classical guitar has noted with surprise along the way how the position you hold your guitar and can make all the difference to the kind of effects you can pull off. In general, as with all kinds of classical music, learning to relax your hands to the point of floppiness can be of the utmost importance to the classical guitar technique. While it may remind you of the regular folk guitar to look at a classical guitar, there is one crucial difference. With the classical guitar, if you’ve seen pictures of the greats at their instruments, the playing position is an upright one. This is actually a far more comfortable and sensible way in which to play guitar. The left hand is far more able to relax in this naturally comfortable position. Classical players will often position their left foot on a little footstool to make this as convenient as possible.

Beginner Acoustic Guitar

Many instructors recommend a guitar with nylon strings as a first beginner acoustic guitar. The reason is that those strings are not so hard on the guitarist’s fingertips. However, if your idea of great music is rock and more rock, a guitar with nylon strings will never produce a tone that will satisfy the rock idol in you.

How to Make a Guitar Solo

Let say you play in a band, you have a tune ready, with intro, verses , refrains and maybe some kind of bridge part, maybe that bridges a refrain sequence moving over back to verse part or opposite. Only thing missing is to create a guitar solo. I have a couple of approaches for this for which I try to follow, and I would at the same time introduce some terms of my own, like for instance passive and active approach solos. You will try to make your solos approach the accompaniment actively. Accompaniment meaning the tune’s overall content, chord progressions, song melody and the different tune sequences mentioned above.
