comment Note naming convention while creating scales
That ! is a "steve-ism", sorry. I had to work these out all on my own, and so ! means "don't show the #/b as it's implied by the key signature". I don't think G# is a standard key signature. You'ld use Ab normally.

comment What are the main topics to master in order to learn to play the piano?
Oh there is definitely science to it. Just write yourself a software synth and you'll learn a LOT about dsp, acoustics and so forth. Myself, I'm mostly into pop. So equal temperament is all I care about. It just works. But playing piano - composing notes and such - I'd still say that's pretty artsy

comment What kind of converter do I need to go from a Yamaha-p105 'USB to Host' to standard MIDI?
If I were you, I'd sell the Alesis and use a softsynth for drums. But, of course, I'm not - I'm sure ya got your reasons :)

comment Drums - Having trouble playing bass 16th notes
I'm no expert... do the usual - slow way down till you can do it to that slowww tempo. Also, I think 16ths on kick are usually done with 2 pedals on the kick drum, eh?

comment Is a digital or acoustic piano a better option for a beginner (sound and feel)?
I haven't researched acoustics much, but I thought at $4000, you were lookin at something used.
