how do i learn to play the piano/keyboard

>rom what I could gather, it has a USB MIDI port, which is great, because it means you can use it as a MIDI master keyboard to play virtual instruments on your computer, once you get tired of the onboard sounds.
You can use any midi keyboard with the computer. Just get a midi to usb cable.


Here is a somewhat simple song to play on piano I've tried to learn yesterday.
It might not be suitable for absolute beginners, and you need a sustain pedal – tho you can perhaps emulate that by drenching your digital piano in reverb – but it's a good left-hand exercise.
You don't have to play all the notes of the left-hand chords at the beginning, you can just play the root notes of the chords instead.
Here is a tutorial for the song using Synthesia software: https://youtube.com/watch?v=OTnhlQq_Vi8

I know, and to be fair, if you are serious about making music with a computer, you should rather get an audio interface because most of them have MIDI ports, even if it's just a Behringer U-Phoria UMC204 or a second hand Focusrite 2i4.
The Casio keyboard OP got doesn't have a MIDI out DIN port as far as I know, only USB.

True. I have a focusrite pro 40. I think it's better than the low end options because they seem to have different software from seeing my friend's low end focusrite. Although if I was buying now I wouldn't get the pro 40. It isn't true 0 latency. I'd get a true 0 latency interface.


Looking it into it again after this post, I was thinking, just a straight analog mixer, post daw, with the audio channel I'm trying to record should give me as close to 0 latency as possible. I dunno. I bought an analog mixer but I haven't tested this yet, but this is my understanding. Also my understanding that no pure passthrough is available on my interface.

So what I envision is:

>daw out

>analog mix with my audio input
>audio input to digital in on the interface. Align


Bumping this thread to humblebrag because I finally managed to play the 12 first measures of Chopin's Prelude in E minor Op.28 No.4 somewhat correctly. I put a cassette VST on the master channel to hide my lack of dynamic control—partly due to my MIDI keyboard being a bitch, still love it nonetheless. I feel proud of myself for once.

I do not like the ramones


don't worry, the song was later remade by another band

yes, it's essentially the same song

I like the lyrics of bands such as The Shaggs and The Violent Femmes. I have never heard or read a poem I like. Can anyone reccomend me a poet that has poetry similar to the lyrics of these bands?
Picunrel, its just Scully chillin'

I can only imagine whoever made that


Its probably ironic


Before any autist spergs out, no I'm not a fascist, I'm not saying fascism is good or anything like that. This is about the music they make (or quasi-fascists, nationalists, etc). I think we can all agree that the typical fascist music we are used to is awful. The music made by Western fascists such as in Nazi Germany or Francoist Spain is more often than not very boring, uninspiring, and repetitive. All those Nazi miltiary marches sound the same, they're all quite mediocre.

Horst Wessel Lied sucks ass, Erika, which is a song wehraboos soyface all over (no clue why) is also very mediocre, I don't understand how anyone could enjoy that song. Most Nazi songs are like this. Cara al Sol, a fascist anthem of the Francoists, is genuinely one of the worst songs I've ever heard. Look it up to see for yourself. And yes I know by saying Western fascists I'm generalizing a lot, but idgaf, the impression I get from them is that all their songs are very similar, bland military shit.

Now let's take a look at Eastern fascists, specifically from the Balkans (yes I know the Balkans are not Eastern Europe but it's not Western Europe either, ergo they go into the broader "Eastern world" for this analysis), from the Middle East, and the Caucasus.

Two Serbian songs I'd like to show you guys, I know most of you are already very familiar with turbofolk but first check out this Chetnik song, the original lyrics apparently were written in 1941 iirc but this version idk what year it's from

There's something about this song. It's weirdly inspiring in a way, it has a good melody, good voice, overall pretty good song.

And coming back to turbofolk, I also want to post this shit. You all probably know this song by now, It's far more rightoid and unapolegitically so but it's still a good song imo. Again goes to show that Serbian rightwingers for whatever reason actually make good music, as opposed to other European rightoids, particularly Western Europeans

Moving on to the next song, a Turkish fascist song from the Grey Wolves. Again with this one, just like the first Chetnik song, this one inspires you. The melody, rhythm, it makes you Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

This slaps but why is it fascist?


these are all shit
i'm starting to think only fascists post in this thread


t.listens to the International on repeat and thinks the USSR anthem is the best song ever made


1. the internationale at least isn't muzak tier shit
2. i listen to newer music anyways
you have to deliberately be into fascism or whatever dumb shit to actually care about any of this "music"


I just think they're decent songs, I don't listen to them very often. I made this thread because I personally never liked those old Nazi songs, like all their anthems and military marches and shit. Found them boring, repetitive, and just shitty in general. Like that Erika song that wehraboos love to soyface all over, never found that song interesting or catchy or anything, just boring and bad.

Meanwhile the serbian chetnik/90s songs I thought were pretty decent, some kinda meme tier nonetheless. Some Turkish nationalist songs I also found pretty good. So I became interested in why there is this difference in the two genres, Western rightoid vs Eastern rightoid music.

Meanwhile leftist music from all around the world is in general very good. I guess it has to do with leftists putting more emphasis on art and shit.


This goes hard

As a black man, I find soft rock to be far more romantic than urban R&B.

I find early urban R&B (1984-1994) to be too flirty and/or too preachy.

Soft rock, the instrumentation is all organic. You can hear the soft earthy tones of the acoustic guitar along side the electric guitar with the piano and woodwind instruments playing alongside in the background. It's soft and sweet while being equally potent.
The lyrics are sincere and humble but never sycophantic

It's an official AU that I am a 1970s soft rock/R&B/jazz fusion musician with an ensemble.
One of my albums is gonna be a literal symphonic suite with a twist of jazz, rock and funk.

My dream band will have a
acoustic guitar
electric guitar
acoustic piano

Good afternoon, leftypol. Time for some sunshine pop from ČSSR


A lot of it has to do with Mike Love positioning them as "America's Band" in the 80s.

>The Beach Boys are the most dismissed rock bands just because of their early material about surfing.

I agree in my heart that they deserve more recognition, but my head knows it's kind of deserved since their catalog swings wildly in quality after Pet Sounds lol

At the very least, Sunflower, Holland, and Love You deserve some reappraisal and rediscovery, as well as Pacific Ocean Blue.

(As an aside, Brian is still somehow the king of hooks even with his most recent material.)


Soft rock and Rand B are supposed to be romantic?


That's why the best bands never last more than ten years.
They've already evolved and said what they needed to say.


It's the implication, but yea I see your point.


There was one thread ages ago. Post good and/or obscure mashups.
