"Astonished!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
There are twelve amazing demo sequences pre-loaded on this instrument that blew me away. Nine of those demos have transcriptions in pdf format and cover different styles of music from rock to jazz waltz. The demos are really great sources for learning cool chord voicings, fills, transistions, melodies, etc. You can solo or mute the piano parts while you play along with the band.This instrument is amazing for the price and is ideal for anyone wanting to attain a higher level of comping skills and chord voicing knowledge. The tracks that I like are Against All Odds, BogiWogi, CntryPno, EpBallad, GospelRB, JazWaltz, JetSet, MBossa, MSwing, RockPno, Salsa, and TakeOff. I plan to import some other songs that I like that I have in midi format to play along with. I am simply amazed at the functionality for the price I paid. Really happy with this instrument.
