Gear4music Offer - Casio WK 7600 KeyboardWorkstation
A keyboard workstation of the absolute extra class!
Sorry a discontinued model of Casio with 76 keys and a sound of the other far more than three times the cost.

Learn piano & sheet music made easy - theory - scales - chords
Because it is great fun to face new challenges, to learn to play the keyboard or piano properly. Of course I won't become a Lang Lang Lang Lang anymore, of course, which makes learning - and especially the polyphonic the polyphonic possibilities of keyboard & piano and their sound - in the slightest not in the least diminishes.
My little elaboration shows thoroughly worked out diagrams about scales and chords. It is supported by extensively researched Links on the subject enriched by expert opinions and so perhaps, in the long run, to become another textbook...

Unfortunately, the upcoming download works only in pay mode. Even if the translation in many cases not, and the full use z. E.g. for the downloads only in the Subscription thus pay mode functions.

Unfortunately, we have found NO German-language piano forum for beginners that we can recommend in good conscience.

Casio E-Pianos - Kirstein gives us a detailed overview
As a long-time user of Casio keyboards, I am very enthusiastic about the new AIX sound. Therefore I ask for your indulgence for my biased representation of the Casio keyboards. In the home recording area the two boards CTX-3000 and CTX-5000 are in the comparison to the competition quite far ahead.
People, compare the sound and you know what I mean!

You have surely heard it, the CT-X3000 and the CT-X5000

Nord Stage 2 compared with Casio Privia PX-5s
In the YouTube video, Miohika compares the 2400€ Nord Stage 2 with the 800€ Casio Privia PX-5s. comparably priced Casio Privia PX-5s. Here it becomes clear that the Casio keyboards are in a much higher league than their price suggests. Which is a real pain in the ass for the competition.

Report Casio CTK-7200 from the competition sponsored testers
Beginner keyboards a dependent test magazine in the partner program of Amazon and Thomann, can't help but emphasize the quality of the Casio. to emphasize.
First they push the CTK-7200 with an absolute Low price of 285 euros (which there has unfortunately never been so low) in the entry-level corner and then complain that the Casio is not a classic entry-level model.
Do you notice what a perfidious campaign against the Casio Keyboards is led. We would all be happy about a keyboard that costs a measly 285 € and can do much more than the entry-level models of the competition, especially the ones with the flabby keyboards!

After the online video by Marcel Maciej, which gave me a really good start, I have now landed on Brendan Kavanagh. On the one hand because I like his humor and of course because the He offered 59 free lessons very muchfällt, profoundly and far-reaching are created!

People, when buying a harpGuitar applies even more than when buying a "normal" guitar.
Unseen buy on the Internet goes absolutely not.
But since we assume that no beginner wants to start with a HarpGuitar, should have some experience with guitars and dealers.
Our humble recommendation:
Telefoniert you through the HarfenGitarrren builders and players and ask for used instruments and / or cheap new.

Series baritone guitars can only be found at the big dealers. There you can look at them in peace via the Internet and the big ones calmly with questions. This way you will learn a lot about these guitars and about the competence and patience of the wholesaler.
With the clear idea gained in this way - for what is suitable in your particular case a baritone is suitable - you should go to your dealer in the town. He is dependent on your purchase (especially now in Corona times) and therefore he gives himself particularly trouble you properly and competently to advise.
So you have a contact person in your vicinity and the next purchase there is certainly already a first small discount.

How to Learn
Since the baritone basically works like a normal guitar, you can use any guitar course you like.
Only in the tuning there is a difference. The baritone is
tuned a quarte or a quinte lower than the guitar.
Normal guitar..... E - A - D - G - B - e'
Baritone quarteh.. B - E - A - d - f#- b
Baritone quinte... A - D - G - c - e - a
So if you finger an E chord, depending on your preferred tuning, you will hear a B or a A chord.

2021 is under the motto - GUIARS
A different guitar shape every month

MUKERBUDE asks the question:
Are electric guitars still contemporary?
The multitude of musicians listed below cannot hide the fact that the the extinction of the electric guitar. Over half are of advanced age and two have already passed away.
New blood on the electric guitar is not really in sight. Even if the dying guitar producers such as Fender and Gibson benefit from the great interest of women in electric guitars, this is just the proverbial whistle.

Can the electric guitar still be saved, or is jazz
and the few interested women not enough?

Allgemeine Zeitung - The electric guitar is dying out
Deutschlandfunk - When the guitar wail goes unheard
SPIEGEL Kultur - New heroes for old strings



First of all, I would like to thank you,
for agreeing to provide the MukerBude
a statement about electric guitars.

What is it that makes you (almost) exclusively play electric guitars?

"That's a good question, because in today's music business and market, acoustic guitars are now much more than electric guitars and electric guitars don't play a very innovative role in today's music. in today's music.

I was always fascinated by the sound of the electric guitar, especially the lead guitar, and I still regret the fact that I didn't get into electric guitars until late in life, that I only started playing the electric guitar late in life.
If I am honest, it was always my wish to play the electric guitar and I have pursued this goal all my life. my whole life.

I still have a hard time on acoustic guitars and I don't really like the handling and the sound. the handling and the sound - an exception is the flamenco guitar, because in this genre a similar genre, you can feel a similar musical fire as with the electric guitar.

The magic of the electric guitar lies above all in the fact that you can shape the sound in any way you like, be it with electronic electronic support, but also with a whole range of different playing techniques, which sound variety of this instrument to almost infinity.

I would compare the electric guitar with a violin. The sound that the body produces is actually ugly. The violin is scratchy, the electric guitar produces a rather muffled signal which sounds like nothing at all. But when you start to connect with the guitar, similar to the violin, this instrument allows you a maximum of emotional expression that you can hardly find on any other instrument.

Just the possibilities which are hidden in the vibrato, in the bendings and the bendings with vibrato, are what make up the magic of this instrument. Once you have mastered the electric guitar, you will be able to express himself emotionally and musically much more comprehensively than one could ever achieve with singing or other instruments. instruments could ever achieve.

Admittedly, the price for this kind of expression is an in-depth study of the electric guitar, but if you go the distance, you will be rewarded.

My musical mission today with my work in my HPCrazy Guitar Academy and the HPCrazy Guitar Nights is to be an inspiration for guitarists to go this way and to experience the fascination and love of this and love of this instrument for themselves.

That's what I've been committed to almost day and night for most of my life."

On behalf of the readers of MukerBude, I sincerely thank you for your competent, honest and remarkably emotionally moving plea for the electric guitar. Thank you

Folks, for those of you who really don't know Hanspeter Krüsi yet, now is the time, to get to know one of the world's best electric guitarists.

A short tip:
Do not buy your first instrument on the Internet from an unknown dealer or from a private person. You may be able to save some money, but you can also lose everything. Even the big instrument discounters are by far not always as inexpensive as they like to announce. Have a look at small dealers in the Net around and you will surely find what you are looking for.
