I’ve always played the piano, and never wanted more out of my piano then the pure piano sound and maybe a bit of organ. However, whenever I sat at someone else’s keyboard I’d be jealous of the sounds it could produce. It was often as simple as a rock beat that you could play along to and for some reason I would usually play the theme to “American’s Funniest Home Videos” or “We’re Not Gonna Take It”.
For some reason in the past few months I was bitten by the new keyboard bug. Not a replacement; more of a toy. I did a bunch of research and ended up way over my original budget purchasing Roland’s Fantom G6. I spent hours looking at YouTube videos but never quite found what I was looking for… someone just having fun. There was a ton of videos of people creating phat beats and the next big rap song, or some crazy solo improv. That was great, and I look forward to trying it, but where was the guy playing Heart’s “Alone” with the preset drum beats? I decided to fill that void, and offer no apologies. I (obviously) didn’t even get as far as figuring out how to end it, but, you have to start somewhere.
