Also, I have a question about a keyboard for anyone who's interested in asking. I have a cpv-20 yamaha keyboard. This is the one that's missing some of the keys. Anyway, I had a generic midi cable that played fine with no glitches and then it broke. So, I purchased a new one and it's fine except that the pedals on the keyboard play notes. The left pedal plays G and the right pedal plays E.
Cool ! You must be the only one here having a pedal piano
Now you can record Alkan's and Schumann's piece for this instrument.
ha ha. yeah, I guess, though I don't know Alkan.
organtechnic23- I'm not sure without looking what the name of the stick is. I'll see if I can find it and let you know.
Sarah- that might work. I'll check it out. Unfortunately, there are a couple of the base strings that don't seem to be livening up much, so we may have to replace those. But, the over all picture is looking better.
Chris- you're right about just covering up the scratches. I'm sure having a hard time covering up some of the bigger scratches on the piano. I wondered if anyone had some tips on that. I'm also going to work on the bench some, and I'm not quite sure what to do about that. Bigger scratches on it.
Thanks everyone, I can't wait to put the first recording. Course, I've been so busy with other music and teaching that I haven't really had time to practice anything! My student told me to tell her when my next recital might be,(of course I don't give many, yet), but I got to thinking after she said that and realized that I really didn't have much in the way of pieces to play. So, I'm going to have to work on that. Plus, I have to play for Messiah auditions tomorrow and practice with the choir after that. I'm feeling fairly busy and starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. But, things are going well, so far.
