Hi everyone,
my name is Dezso, I am a 49yr old hungarian guitarist.
I have "always" planned to learn the basics of keyboard playing, and it seems the time has come. I am glad I found this great community with enormuous amount of information, and friendly people.
Well...if you expect some newbie questions to come, you will not be disappointed ;)

Hello again!
I was in "read only" mode since my last spot, but it does not mean at all that I gave up The Plan.
Not at all.
Your help, advices, thoughts, and the infinite amount of information here drove me to this day, which is the Unboxing Day :)
This morning I bought my PSR-S775 (tempting pricetag:1.049EUR). Well... it was hard to concentrate on the daily work, but finally I'm at home, and there must be a huge scissors somewhere.
But I wanted to share my joy with you first: the journey on the black&white field has begun.    (And I can't stop grinning while writing this post)

Welldone Dezso and a nice price indeed.
Have lots of fun my friend.  :)
Is not so hard to play keyboard by your self,especially if you play the quitar.
Lots of videos on you tube that help even for the simpliest things about playing a piano/keyboard.
And a question of yours will help other people too,no matter how "simple" maybe the answer.
So feel free to ask.

status report
buying this instrument : it was one of my best decisions in my past few years. Not a surprise that I'm spending more time with reading different manuals than playing (yet), but meanwhile started to learn this:

It is a bit challenging for a beginner like me, but I already like what I can hear when practicing...
Of course, only using a rough guess of the voice combinations, and need to work on the smooth chord changes, but at 1st try it sounds acceptable (for me ;)  )

Wah Clavi + Phase Clavi
Electric Piano + Smooth Tine
Electric Piano + Octave Brass

Good night all.

I am glad that you liked your s775 my friend.  :)
Definitely not an easy song Dezso,there are too many black keys involved in there, so don't worry about it.
You could search the styles on your keyboard to see what combination of voices Yamaha developers may have chosen for the OTS to get some extra ideas.
Or search the synth and fx folder for sounds with the "wah wah" effect  ;D
and also on guitars and bass folder some strange bass sounds.
And you can use the modulation wheel with your left hand to listen how cool and funny those voices sound.
