While music can be very formula driven similar to mathematics the real stuff happens when you go away from the formulas or go put of the box. Flat 7 and Flat 3 notes & chords are very common particularly in blues and jazz. These variations from the norm are what can provide color and character to music. When in doubt go with the words of the great Duke ...

I'm not 100% sure what your goals are since I see a conflict between using the tone net, which just goes off in all directions with more and more sharps/flats, and your goal of limiting/manipulating the number of sharps and flats. In conventional music the key signatures are (usually) selected so as to avoid double-flats/sharps and the use of chromatic ...

Besides weighted action, they can be as well called "hammers", because actually, there is a hammer inside of some of them, for example in this GH3 (image taken from yamaha.jp webpages): GH3 stands for Graded Hammer 3rd generation. The word graded indicates that the keys change a bit from low tones to high ones, which reflects the behaviour of a true ...

Just done a trawl through sheet music, to find it's been written with key signatures of C, G and E. The original, which lands on A, has no key sig. Most of the solo work seems to be using E minor pent/blues. It could be construed that it's in E, as that's the chord it gravitates to each verse. Or the chords could be explained (in E) as coming from ...

There are many ways to deviate from the pattern. In this example a very common pattern emigres from the circle of 5ths. The chords don't belong to any one key, but rather come from multiple keys. You start with a C and go to G (I to V in the key of C), then you go from a G to a D(I to V in the key of G), then you go from a D to a A(I to V in the key of D), ...

Weighted action.Not as complex as an acoustic piano, but feels close to it, as opposed to a 'switch', more like an organ feel. If one is used to a proper piano feel, it's quite different when using a non-weighted feel. While some digitals have velocity sensitivity, it's not the same as a weighted action, and it's not so effective putting expression into the ...
