What one? Keyboard or Piano?


That would depend on what you want to use it for. Assuming you mean a real piano, it's not portable, it can't be used with headphones for silent practice, and it will need periodic tuning and general maintenence. However, no electronic device is actually going to sound like a real piano, and no action feels the same as a real piano. Keyboards, on the other hand, can be played in different locations, have a larger variety of sounds, and are cheaper to maintain. As a pro musician, I own both. Actually a number of different keyboards, but only one piano

How do I to learn Microsoft Excel 2010?


Learning new applications is rarely easy and you will have to work at it. The best way is to Google Free Excel tutorials and pick one that is simple to understand, then just download some sample spreadsheets and play around with them. Remember to "save as" a different name so as not to mess up the original file. Once you understand the basics, find someone (maybe a senior student) who will explain the bits that are difficult to understand from the tutorials

I have just bought yourRP3503-B, SN: CGBO8K316B0056 machine: I write tto enquire, before I destroy its packaging, whether it is likely satisfactorily - and faiothfully - to record and play my (in home)...


It will definitely record and play your Grand Piano pieces without problem, although I'm sure there is a higher quality solution out there. You can always try it and see if it records at levels that are to your satisfaction, and if not then you can return it at that point. But if you want high quality, near studio level recordings, you are going to need a much better device than that one. For musicians such as yourself I recommend a high end recorder made for instruments and vocals. The most reasonable one out there would be the Zoom H4n recorder:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002XF8CRI?ie=UTF8&tag=dependascient-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002XF8CRI

I definitely recommend that one, and I know pianists who use it personally, and they all love it. For example here is someone right off Amazon raving about the product:

"The Zoom H4n is a great portable recorder. It really picks up all the nuances of the recording, is easy to use, and provides a superior experience for music recording. I personally use it for recording from my grand piano, and it's superb."

So check out that link I provided, yes it's fairly pricey, but that is a complete package with everything you would need to record the way you want, I am sure you'd be much much happier with it.

If you can find the C-below-middle-C ?

Put your small finger on C,
your next finger on the next white key: D,
your middle finger on the next white key: E
your index finger on the next white key: F
your thumb on the next white key: G

Lift your fingers away from D and F -- to keep this simple -- all we did was identify the D and E and F and G keys, relative to the C key.

Press C and E and G (small, middle, thumb)
to play a "major" chord in C.

Move your fingers "up":
C to D, E to F-sharp, G to A,
and play a "major" chord in D.

Move your fingers "up":
D to D-sharp, F-sharp to G, and A to A-sharp,
and play the chord in D-sharp (usually called 'E-flat').

Move your fingers "up":
D-sharp to F, G to A, and A-sharp to C,
and play the chord in F.

Move your fingers "up",
F to G, A to B, and C to D,
and play the chord in G.

Go back to the starting position (C-E-G),
and move "down": C to B-flat, E to D, and G to F,
and play the chord in B-flat.

So far, you have C-major, D-major, E-flat-major, F-major, G-major, and B-flat-major.

There are more chords, but most pop-music is in one of these keys.

Give it a try.

A lot of left-hand stuff is just the small-finger and thumb, omitting the middle finger, e.g., C&G,
to avoid a too "muddy" sound.

Or, "stretch" your hand: C-and-G-and-the-next-higher-C.

Mac Driver for Dream Cheeky USB Roll-Up piano


I got one of the drum kits last Christmas, but I have a Mac. Finally, this Christmas, I got around to writing a driver for it. I mean, why not? It runs in Terminal and translates the drumkit hits to MIDI messages which you can use to control GarageBand or Logic or send out a MIDI interface to control MIDI hardware. Doesn't have any of the fancy learning modes or anything, though; just lets you play it. Email mail_ben_schmidt at yahoo com au if you're interested. I doubt it would take much modification to get it to work with the piano, which I expect works on exactly the same principles. But I don't have a piano, so I would need to collaborate with someone or have one lent or donated to me to do that.
