Hi everyone
« on: November 27, 2017, 02:01:55 PM »
HI, didn't play keyboard last 7/8 years. In that period I was playing the guitar. Now I'm retired I've decided to return to keyboardplaying again. My last keyboard was a Technics KN7000. I have bought a used Tyros 5 ( for less €€, thanks to the appearance of the Genos  ;) ); loving the sound, quality and it certainly will cover my needs. I'm playing keyboards for my own pleasure and only at home. Have discovered this forum, which gives a lot of information as I have to discover plenty things getting to know the Yamaha. But that will give me pleasure, as well as the playing of course. Thanks for reading, regards Ton37  8)

Thanks @Ekurberski and @Toril for your welcome. Much appreciated. It's a challenge get to know this Tyros 5, but it inspires. Also my playing skills seems to have disappeared  >:(, so it will be a long, but pleasant, journey. I discovered this forum when I googled for the Yamaha 'tips and tricks' and it seems to be a right place were is a tremendous bulk of information regarding the Tyros etc. Looking to the questions/answers there is a huge amount of knowledge here and great people that whished to help. So the journey starts now, lets (try to) make music  ;)
Regards Ton

Hi, as it was written in the welcome-post above, I made a donation-order to support  the forum and as a  symbolic 'thank-you' to all  the contributors for the work they volontary did. As I'm new to the Tyros, I'm now a consumer more than a contributor (yet), but who knows if I can help someone in future?  Regards Ton. 8)
