If I were to pick an instrument to play, I gravitate hard to the keyboard/piano or anything reminiscent. Second to that would be anything pluckable with strings. I used to play guitar, but in time, I grew increasingly bored and uninspired to keep playing it again. I've heard one too many derivative guitar bands and sounds (especially for acoustic guitar). Anywho, it seems like the kind of music I enjoy seems to be one with plenty of keyboards. I love electronic music, new wave, synth pop (when it isn't derivative of the works many have taken on under this genre) and synthpunk. Stones Throw got me into Jazz through the heavy keys of Yesterday's New Quintet (I've been listening to artists like DJ Harrison and bands like Gogo Penguin ever since. I also love Sa-Ra and some neo-soul (again, when artists of the genre aren't derivative of other singers and musicians). In fact, I'm a supportive listener of some of Stones Throw's musicians from James Pants to Dam-Funk to Pyramid Vritra because of how they inspire me to better my ability to play and write songs. Stones Throw has a LOT of on-rap artists on that employ keyboards, except maybe soul singers like Myron and E, Aloe Blacc and outlier artists and bands such as The Lions and, occasionally, The Stepkids. The reason why I love a keyboard is due to the diversity in sounds like each keyboard implies. From piano to strings to synth to playful/random soundbites. A keyboard encourages me to be more adventurous, and perhaps, even more experimental with my songwriting and music production. I have two keyboards (and a rollout piano) that I write songs with and am wondering if I should one day take up fixing keyboards for a living. Is anyone else here a total keyboard/piano/synth/keytar geek like me?
