Hey everybody. I just found this forum after doing an internet search.

I'm a guitarist primarily, and a composer. I studied music for two years in college, so during that time, I was required to study piano -- and I actually got pretty good at it. But that was a long time ago and after my tenure as a music student I spent too many years without keyboards, so I lost pretty much everything I learned.

I now own three keyboards -- a 61-key synth, a 76-key digital piano (sorta)/synth, and an 88-key digital piano with weighted action. So no more excuses. I need to budget my time better where I can spend at least an hour a day with my piano. But I do use my keyboards on a fairly regular basis when I'm composing music. Keyboards are so much more easy for analysis of my compositions than doing so on guitar. I know the fretboard backwards and forwards, but I've never seen it as being a clear slate when it comes to theory and analysis. That and stacking 3rds is a real problem on guitar, and since all chords are based on stacking 3rds, the guitar is often a challenge when I'm composing.

So anyway, I'll probably have some MIDI questions, and also some with regard to efficient time management as well.
