If You Plink To Me I’ll Plonk To You

Mom signed herself up for one of those “play by ear” lessons
recently. So to help her out, I bought a keyboard (the musical
kind) which I have also been wanting ever since I started
doing music tracking/composing/remixing on my
Commodore Amiga A1200
computer in 1993/1994 (jumping octaves on the computer keyboard,
while achievable, required some patience to live with). While
the keyboard ain’t no Korg, Roland or even Yamaha for that
matter, I was pleasantly surprised by how rich the
Casio WK-1800
keyboard sounded! What surprised me was that it also has an
on-board synth and sequencer, although I expect to be tinkering
most of the stuff via MIDI once I get the cables. Not bad for a
home keyboard actually! I’m not really a performer as much as I
am a tracker/composer/remixer but I reckon I can start
somewhere. I’m already plinking plonking away to
Dewa 19‘s piano ballad Cintakan Membawamu Kembali.
Perhaps one day I can sound as good as the
tracked MIDI version does. For now,
I’m just bleeding everyone’s ears as I go along.
