AI fingering
« on: July 21, 2020, 09:57:54 PM »
Looking to learn about these i found a yamaha pdf explaining them for psr1000/psr2000/tyros keyboards dated 2005 Hopefully attached. NOPE wont do pdfs. but here copy and pasted is its name.
usa-yamaha-comsupportfaqkeyboards2283-html (google did not find it at first)
a few of their examples do not work as expected on the psrsx900!
I also include a chart. (when the forum agrees!)
Which kinds can be played with ai fingering?
Yamaha PSR-SX900 - Overview with Gabriel Aldort. this yamaha salesman is very keen on them.
Thanks everyone.

AI fingering is on all new Yamaha keyboards now and usually comes as default. Great to use. Everything can be played with AI fingering. Things have certainly moved on a long long way since the two keyboards you mentioned.

Thanks Eileen.
is there a page that explains HOW to know which notes to play?
I know 1st and 3rd for basic triads.

Hi Anon,
if you are not a jazz music expert and don't mind if the bass in the style is playing not exactly the root note that you want, just play the chord as you read it in sheet music.

No matter if you play 1st,2nd or 3rd inversion of the triad basic chord or the 7th chord, the keyboard will play the first inversion.
So it is really useful to play most of the chords in just one octave's gap.
Personally I use inversions of chords between the F key to F# key (the key where the split point is). There are just some rare chords that have not an inversion between those notes.

With the AI fingering mode I can get some great help while my left hand is not so... co-operative to move around in all the keybed  :)

This article may also help you:

If you want to totally control the chord's root just use another fingering mode.
