Korg PA3x Review and Diatonic Chords

Greetings piano fans.

Once again , thank you for your interest in these free online lessons. I sincerely hope that you are experiencing all the great benefits learning to play keyboards has to offer.

I really appreciate each and everyone of you who take the time to contact me and offer suggestions for lessons. I really wish I could be there in person to help with everyone's goals when it comes to learning to play keyboards.

It's hard to know where everyone is in their learning curve and your communications help me greatly.

A personal note

Hope you are all well and still excited as I am about making music!.

As I mentioned in the last issue I recently was blessed with a new Korg PA3x pro arranger keyboard and I am really stoked to get into it and share the information with my readers.

In this issue I give a general review of the Korg PA3x 76 note professional arranger keyboard.

I say general review because as one of the top of the line arranger keyboards on the market there are still a lot of features and functions I have yet to explore!

I will be adding more info on ths awesome instrument as days go by and will update you.

As many of my readers own this category of keyboard I will be doing some great lessons on how to make the most of the common features that all arranger keyboards have such as variations, fill-ins, intros and endings and using the right styles.

In short we will be getting into the nuts and bolts of sounding great on your instrument!!

Korg PA3x 76 note arranger review

In this Korg PA3x 76 review I am going to go over some of the amazing features that convinced me that it was the keyboard for me.

I have had the keyboard for a couple of months as of this writing and by no means am I an expert on using all the available technology and, quite frankly, I would rather be playing it right now but I promised my readers to let them know when I got one!!

Jazz Chord Progressions and "Satin Doll"

Jazz for many people is an acquired taste. At least it was for me. So was Coffee and Beer but I learned to appreciate them and it was that way with Jazz.

Learning Jazz Chord Progressions is by far the best way to learn and understand chord progressions in general..

This is because in the realm of the Jazz genre you will find a great variety of songs that have more complex, varied and interesting chord progressions.

This lesson will give you a basic introduction to the most common jazz chord progressions and other musical elements both rhythmic and harmonic that give a song that Jazz flavor.

Introducing GospelKeys 101...

Now In Less Than 2 Hours, You Can Jump Start Your Piano Playing With These 3 Easy Steps!

Dear Friend,

Jermaine Griggs, the pioneer of the award-winning GospelKeys learning system, has come up with 3 simple steps so that you won't waste any time at all. In fact, it'll virtually cut your learning time in half! I copied and pasted the most important parts below so you can get a general idea.


Step One: Determining the Melody

Step Two: Harmonizing the Melody

Step Three: Adding the Bass

These three steps are not super complicated theories that require several years of experience. In fact, they were designed for the total beginner with absolutely no musical experience.

What most people don't understand is that most songs follow patterns. If you've been mistakenly learning songs, one by one, you're only exercising your ability to MEMORIZE chords --- and
that's exactly why it takes SO LONG to learn just one song.


If you concentrate on LEARNING PATTERNS, you'll never go wrong because songs are built on repeating patterns. You should NEVER EVER have to memorize dozens of songs when they all share the same exact CHORDS, PROGRESSIONS, AND PATTERNS.

So head over to their site and let me know what you think

If you have any questions, feel free to reply.

Talk soon,

P.S. - You might find more interesting information, techniques, or resources just by clicking around on their website..

I want to remind you that many of the ideas for lessons come from those of you who contact me with questions. I encourage you to let me know what you need.

Also you can find a contact form on the site and suggest a song for a future lesson. Don't be shy. Let me know how i can help!!

I am grateful for all of you, and wish you the best success in your playing!!

Thanks, Greg
