comment Why do we use such complicated notation?
Music is an art. You get really good after 10000 hours of intense practice. The time needed to learn music notation is a very small fraction of that. Music notation is beautiful. And it is a precious legacy of the past. You read the scores as they were written by Beethoven. Just enjoy and practice. Music is not computers or texting. Take the time to learn.

Thanks for the reply. In fact, there are songs where that sound intensity difference is exagerated on purpose. You haven't encountered any yet ? (I'll find and send an actual sample)

comment What keys are associated to what drums when connecting keyboard to Roland electronic drum via MIDI?
indeed, definitely understood that :). It will eventually take less room than the usual setup ;). And your assumption regarding Roland's choice makes sense. I'll just have to check now !

comment What keys are associated to what drums when connecting keyboard to Roland electronic drum via MIDI?
please be sure to understand my question ( I have a little doubt ) : I know that keys on keyboards are associated to drum instruments. What I care about is Which Pad of my Roland TD-9K (Or other electronic drumset) will be triggered when I plug a MIDI keyboard to it. :)

@Luke: many thanks Luke. But do you think that those markings will actually correspond to the sound that will come out of a Roland electronic drumset (like TD-9K) once I connect a MIDI keyboards to its MIDI IN ?

comment On a guitar how do you play two notes simultaneously on non-adjacent strings?
On guitars, picking allows to play fast, but with a lower "sound quality". Playing with nailless fingers allow to play several strings simulaneously, but without speed or sound clarity. Playing with nails enables to play fast with precision and changeable (potentially amazing) sound quality. But it takes time and care to keep your nails in the needed shape and surface state. The latter is used for playing "classical guitar". The piece you mention is a classical one, and can definitely be played on a classical guitar.

comment How do you actually practice playing an electronic keyboard?
thank you for your answer slim. Although bright and very well written, well structured, it does not answer my primary concern : how may I make progress, technically speaking, on a keyboard that does not have the same characteristics as a piano ? Should I perform the same exercises as the ones performed by a pianist ? (scales, etc...) I guess that all "keyboardists" were "pro" pianists before ?
