I’ve ordered a Yamaha P32E from Japan, and while I wait for it to arrive, I’ve borrowed a keyboard from a friend to start getting the hang of it. Apart from a few piano lessons as a child, and briefly having an accordion (decades ago), I haven’t had much to do with keyboards. (I’ve played mostly things with strings, though none to an advanced level). I had great fun playing with the keyboard this evening and trying to remember anything I ever did know…
Anyone else here who has come to the melodica without being competent on a keyboard?
I am struggling to find keyboard tutorials which focus on what’s relevant to the melodica – i.e. mostly one-handed, how to use some of the restricted chord/harmonising possibilities, how best to do the fingering. I’m wanting to play Irish tunes, so I don’t need to worry about esoteric keys for the moment.
Anyone know good sources (ideally with video) which are tailored to this?
