Newie from Coffs Harbour

Post by johnno22 » 11 Apr 2016, 13:16

Hello! My name is John from Coffs Harbour NSW Australia. I am 82 yrs old.... have been playing piano/organ/keyboards for over 65 yrs. I still play professionally and also teach. I have a Yamaha upright acoustic piano and a new Yamaha DGX-650 keyboard. I often play a 9ft Yamaha Grand at our local Arts Centre. I bought the keyboard only last week as my 8yr old Korg PA800 died an electronic death.
Have had my own bands in earlier years.... mainly swing & blues.... used to play a lot of boogie also.
These days its usually piano bar stuff which is quite easy & one can get away with mistakes.
My other interests are..... riding a fast motorbike.....playing furious table tennis & playing music to anyone who listens.
Trying to work out all the options on this DGX-650.... any tips will be welcome
