Hello everyone ...
I am totally new to music, and the digital keyboard.

Just before the Covid UK lockdown, I visited our local music store; and witnessed the Casio CT-X3000.
Wow ... the sound is absolutely incredible through the bass and treble speakers. I have never heard anything like it.

So, aged 69 ... I took the challenge, and bought one.
This is the perfect opportunity to sit down and study how to read music notation through the lockdown.
It's great fun ... I'm loving it.

Can I take this opportunity to ask a music question that is bothering me; if anyone can help me out, please ...
This is a haunting melody on the Casio youtube thread

can anyone tell me the name of the tune?

Looking forward to learning from the colleagues in this forum, and being able to contribute in the future.

regards,
Geoffrey

I don't recognize that one, but the very tail end almost has a sort of upbeat funk to it, which makes me wonder if it might be part of a pop song?

It isn't really a long enough clip to identify the tune before they switch to another voice.

Welcome Geoff.

Good choice of keyboard you made there to get you going into the wonderful world of making your own music.

That section of the demo is so annoying, I recognise the melody but cannot place it. I even recorded it and used a couple of Apps that are supposed to recognise songs, the Apps failed Deep Purple it is not, nor is it some rap cr4p.

You will find plenty of good resources in this forum for learning.

Jack from Anderton’s produces some great reviews and videos he did a series for Newbies, this is the first in the series.


Casio has some tutorial video for the CTX models that may help


Good luck and keep playing

Your best option for identifying the tune might be to contact the maker of the video (Casio?) and ask them.

SeaGtGruff ...
thanks so much for your input.
I did post the question on the youtube video.
Alas, no reply.

Biggles ...
thanks to you too.
You went to a lot of trouble to try and identify this tune.
I am thinking it must be a "classic" guitar piece, because of its relationship among the other tracks.

I am not giving up on this one ...
if I find the answer, I will post it!

*If I cannot find the name of this tune ... could either of you find the time to write the notation for me, please?

Stay safe

Actually have you tried running the tune thru shazam? It should be able to come up with a name. It sounds familiar. I think it was originally done by Shakira.

happyrat1 ...
thanks for your reply.

I was thinking this was a classical guitar piece with its own notation, but you seem to think it is a "cover" version of a song.
Now I am really confused, as what to think ?!

Incidentally, great song by Shakira.

I have tried writing the notation from the video down, but the player is too fast for me.
I can't get it right.

I'm pretty sure it's from some latin flavored song either by Shakira or Celine Dion but for the life of me I can't remember which one.

I can definitely hear it-- not the vocals, but the guitar part.

Casio makes good keyboards. The tune is "Despasito"
