My name is Pat

Thank you for welcoming me to your forum.
I live near Skegness in Linclonshire England.
I played a old Thomas organ over 30 years ago until~
work commitments took over and it became a dust collector
and was forced to take it to the rubbish tip.
I have been a coach driver for the disabled for all this time and
often thought one day i will play again.
I have just purchased a Yamaha tyros 4 and wow what a difference
in technology 30 years have made.
The sounds are great.
looking forward to swapping information both technical and musical
with other members

Thanks again Pat

          Welcome to this great Forum, Pat
      As a Tyros owner now, (I can only dream),  avail yourself of viewing a series of good videos by Fred Smith, to lead you through setting up a T4 to making good music.

                 Cheers,       Alan

Hi Pat, I remember when I arrived here Michael Rideout spotted my confusion with the midi structure and took time to give me a very informative explanation on how midi works. Much better than anything I could find elsewhere. I am still grateful to him. You will find a wealth of support from all.
