Re: What have you baked recently?

I recently fell down the sourdough rabbit hole. Interesting learning experience, especially if you enjoy science experiments. :happy I've gotten to the point where I have made a viable starter and have baked 3 loaves of bread! Since my wife graduated, sourdough has become her obsession. She's now e...

Re: Pianists - Digital Piano or Keyboard recommendation

I have the Yamaha P-125 and I think it's a great keyboard for a beginning student. In fact, I bought it because I was learning to play piano and was not sure if I'd stick with it. I have been playing for 3 years and am only now starting to outgrow it, from a functionality perspective. The only downs...

Re: Another Digital Piano Thread

I think you are looking at this the right way. I have the Yamaha P-45 and it's a fine piano for a beginner to early intermediate user. I bought one to teach myself and it has served me well for 3 years. If your daughter sticks with it, she will probably notice its limitations after 3 years or so. Th...

Re: Online or software piano lessons

(By way of background, I have been playing guitar for 50 years and I am very self-motivated). The online instructor I went with is WIllie Myette. I chose an option where I selected a focus a...

Re: Guitar Players -CAGED system

As others have said, the CAGED system is just a way of learning/visualizing the guitar fretboard. I, personally, never found it to be very enlightening. What I did find very enlightening is the Truefire course "Fingerboard Breakthrough", by Howard Morgen. Overall, this course is for interm...
