New boy on the block!

Post by Compo » 20 Jan 2016, 13:32

Hi Eileen and everybody--pleased to have found this site as think it may well help me figure everything out on my new 609(PM)! ;) .Love it.
Well,for my history.Mum made me take piano lessons when I was a boy(long time ago!),and was getting on fine,but then enlisted in Navy,and no piano's around (and no portable electronic wizardry in them days).After serving my time in Navy,went on to other seafaring jobs till eventually retiring,and about 5 yrs ago,got to thinking about taking up piano again.
Started out with an old acoustic,then to electro magic,and couple months ago got my 609.getting on fine with it,but do find some of the operations rather complicated(such as registration banks,and folders,saving stuff)anybody reading this can offer any help would appreciate.....thanx.
BTW,I was 84 last month
Was reading something's about the Internet WiFi connection.Mine connected very easily,but there is nothing there and my dealer says Yamaha have ceased that on the 609.And next month I am buying a new IPad pro,as it seems there are some great innovations when connected to the piano.
I am living alone now as my wife recently had to go into care.and the piano is a great antidote for loneliness.
Well that's me in a nutshell folks,and I gotta go now and do some more practice!, My regards to you all.

Hello Compo and Welcome to the Forum. I myself have the Tyros 5 and the S970 but the operating systems on most Yamaha keyboards and piano's are the same so I am sure you will find all the help you need. Please join in with our other sections if you can. We have a very nice performers page where you can hear these lovely instruments being played. We also have a little Games section just for fun.
Hope you will enjoy being a member here.
