Dream Pond has existed in several locations over the years. On this plane, it appears TX is the chosen resting place. "Lost in a dream from a land that never was, or could it be reality in the land of Just Because!?!" Life started in 1960, Music started in 1968 and has maintained until present. Several off ramps and rest stops in-between. Mindfully awakening. The Mark you see mentioned is Mark Price. A bit of a KORG fan. Has recorded with KORG DW8000, M1, T2, OASYS & PA4X. (fiction) peace out <> = = = = Scott!!! (Vocals, Guitars & incidental items of tonal qualities) (Inspiration) (17)

How It’s Done: Computers generally only make mistakes if they’re programmed in. I don’t have that problem. The goal is not “to never make a mistake” but to “not stop when you do”.

Right Hand: I often experience Diabetic Neuropathy in the extremities. Add to that, frequently playing with eyes closed (very helpful when playing in dark venues w/no stage lighting). I tend to anchor a finger or thumb within the voicings of what the right hand is up to. This is not being done consciously. Appears to have developed subconsciously, out of necessity, over a very long period of time. Thus, there is no means within me to explain a process for what the right hand is doing. The best I can do is to show.

Left hand is usually doing pedal chord, pedal chord (rather haphazardly). Picture a left hand playing a 140 bass accordion. On a single keyboard, opposed to Console Organ (Upper & Lower Keyboard with Bass Pedals), unless playing a bass line, pedal chord works pretty thought free for me.

Major Keys: Transpose the keyboard, up or down so that the fingers are playing in C.

Minor Keys: Transpose to A.

That gives the major amount of white keys being used (bigger targets to hit). Also, after doing this for a very long time, the fingers tend to get spacing trained. Similar to that of a fretless string instrument player. Plus, Insanely lazy, I am!

Sooo, if-in y’all really want to emulate how I play?!? In a Nutshell. Numb yer hands, close yer eyes, transpose to C and think bottom end accordion, . . . . . . . . for many years!

Fingerings: If you get to the correct note, in the correct time and are set up for the next note. . . . . You have used the correct fingering. I don’t always get to the same place using the same fingering. Mix it up!

Tuning: My board is tuned to 432hz.

Transpose: Each whole number is actually a half step. ex: +1 from C is C sharp, -1 from C is B, and so on.

There are two stomp boxes on the floor to keep my feet busy. Learned on a Hammond L100 with bass pedals.

Hopefully you see something useful in here.
