Music Aficionado

I Enjoy listening to classical, baroque, jazz, gospel and old country and western music. Additionally, I try to play Piano, Guitar and Ukulele, sometimes reasonably.

This is the blurb from Yamaha about my keyboard seen in the image above:

Yamaha PSR-E413 61-Key Digital Keyboard

The Yamaha PSR-E413 61 Key Digital Keyboard expands the capabilities of one of Yamaha’s most popular PSR lines. The PSRE413 includes features for every playing level such as the Yamaha portable grand and Yamaha education suite. An on-board arpeggiator includes 100 different patterns along with 20 different arpeggio voices. A full set of real-time controls gives you easy access to all of the capabilities of the PSRE413. A USB port is also included so you can download songs for learning from the internet. If you want to write your own songs, the PSRE413 also features a 6-track sequencer so you can layer your own tracks.

UPDATE: We bought a new keyboard to replace the one above, which will be retired to the RV for practice on the road. Here is the information on the new Yamaha PSR-E373:

This is Yamaha’s Blurb about this keyboard:

The PSR-E373 features a newly developed tone generator that delivers stunning improvements in sound quality as well as high-quality effects. You can enjoy a comprehensive library of 622 instrument Voices perfect for playing in any genre you choose, as well as unique Super Articulation Lite Voices that reproduce the subtle nuances of stringed instruments such as the cello and mandolin that are typically difficult to emulate on a keyboard instrument, delivering realistic and authentic performances.

UPDATE: We decided to replace the above keyboard with the identically-performing 76-key version, the Yamaha PSR EW310:
