Not sure if BLOG, Off Topic or Music, but I posted in Music. Altho it’s going to be a BLOG kinda thread.
So some time ago Youtube decided to recommend to me some classical music channels and I quite enjoyed them. With the time I enjoyed them more and looked some other classical music channels and a thought started brewing in mi head - Why oh why, don’t I buy a Piano?
Well, here we are.
After some searching and money gathering, I finally purchased what I considered to be the best available option at the moment: KAWAI ES100
There are 3 important reasons I bought this one instead of something like Yamaha P45 or Roland FP10 or similar offerings:
Fully graded fully weighted action
192 note polyphony (other offerings drop down to 64)
Solid sustain pedal, that support half pedaling. Everyone else offer a plastic on and off button as a pedal. Also this model support triple pedal units if I ever reach that level.
Well in this thread I will post comments, ideas and basically everything I am thinking about when it comes to the piano for as long as I use it. Or until I forget…
On a more serious note (hehe), let’s see some progression if you are up for it. What is the piano equivalent of guitar people learning Smoke on the Water riff? Probably Liszt’s “Réminiscences de Don Juan”, maybe?
I would have dissuaded you from buying because I saw your post in the Lounge but I was busy playing ACVI and BG3. I hope you have the time for that. Well, now you have to allocate time to practice.
Grats! Now you have to record a few tunes and post it here or something.
Also I was told to practice Do-Re-Mi from the Sound of Music as a beginner way way back then. (I never really learned but I know a few right hand tunes, never learned to use my left hand in the piano like proper musician)
I have enough free time where I can practice a bit daily.
Today I practiced finger independence. I stopped practicing after about 15-20 minutes cause I started feeling strain in the right hand.
I was told the moment I feel tired to stop and not push anymore…
