Yupp, actually I knew there where other stupid notationcreating people back in the ages all around Europe.
And another thing. Here we dont call them sharps and flats.

# = iss
b = ess

Instead of G sharp - it is : giss
Instead of G flat - it is : gess

The black keys are called:
#
- -Ciss - Diss - - Fiss - Giss - Aiss - -

b
- - Dess - Ess - - Gess - Ass - B - -

I use sharps and flats. So much easyer, and since I didnt know notation and theory when I started, I had to learn, and all the theory was in english so Smile

My thoughts on practising. hmmmmmm Rolling Eyes . Well, I like to listen to OTHER types of music OTHER than piano music like symphonies, string quartets, trumpet music etc. Oh! And SINGING!!! Listening to SINGERS is good too so I can understand what LOOOOOONG sustained lines are like and what the "singing tone" sounds like!!!! Listening to other types of music helps me understand different sounds and effects that I can apply to my own music!!! Also listening to other people of a higher level perform helps so I get inspired to elevate myself to their level. Here's a cool orchestral piece:

My thoughts on practicing: have fun. if your not having fun the your not going to want to practice and if you don't want to practice chances are you eventually wont and you'll get lazier and lazier. soooo here's a few things I'll do to have fun:

If my parents are talking I'll play some kinda watever on the keyboard to make them sound either important or patriotic and if they mess up there words or something I play something silly like e, e flat, d, d flat, c (use pitch bar here). It can be pretty funny if you do it right with the right sounds.

Pop in a movie and turn the sound off and make your own music to them.

Play a battle them to one of the Final Fantasy series.

Recreate any movie or game theme and imagine it going on in your head.

Play the most annoying song you can think of with your sister in the room.

Play the chromatic scale with repeating notes as fast as you can with an added rhythm.

Play a guitar solo on keyboard.

Play a death song.

Attempt to play Octavarium by Dream Theater (it really only looks hard because it's fast. Slow it down and you'll know it in no time. The hard part is playing up to tempo accurately.)

Play something ironic to what's going on around you, ie; if your mom is giving a lecture to your sister about being on the phone 24/7 running up the minutes, play a patriotic song. Or if she's cleaning play some kinda battle or sports song. If your sister is yelling at you play something like morning mood (lol, i can be kind of annoying with the keyboard lol)

What ever you do if you have to practice a scale please please please put a rhythm in it. It will get sooo boring if you don't.

So I've heard a great way to practice is to do it together with someone, so the first thing i'm gonna do when I get my digital piano is to learn
this ambient guitar that plays in the back of John Petrucci's Wishful Thinking, because my brother is learning the solo part.

This will probably practice rythm and cooperation, not that i'm planning on playing in a band, but would be cool to jam with another person.

If I could make a suggestion (for when you get more skilled...or if you are already skilled enough) 2 very fun songs to play with a group of people are One Winged Angel by Nobou Uematsu and the FF 7 Crisis Core battle theme. These are crazy fun because as the keyboardist you can mix it up (especially the battle theme it's the most fun in my opinion). Battle themes to any game I've played are so flexible that it makes practicing nothing but fun if you have a group of people with you. My friend is a drummer and when the rest of the band isn't there and we are just bored we play the FF 8 battle theme and remix it.
