Why are the simplest things

So hard to find in music? Took me forever to find blank bass tabs I liked yesterday. Anyways I cannot find a simple battery powered one octave/12 key keyboard like Josh has when he’s showing us the notes. I want something small and simple that I can sit in front of me to practice ear training, work on ideas, etc. Anybody seen one online?

Haha, one octave is pushing it… this one might be your best bet - about 40 dollars, I guess:

A one-octave keyboard would be useless unless you literally only played in one key. You need two octaves to be able to play a full ascending or descending scale in all keys, it’s the bare minimum.

I think you are overestimating what I want to do here :rofl:. I just need twelve notes. Like sing a C, play a C. Or like play a simple melody. Like a kids toy, you know? That can sit on an end table, next to my remote. And beer.

Sure, understood, I’m just explaining why you’re not finding one :slight_smile:

Yeah I know. I’m just saying whether real or imagined I swear I can remember seeing these things. Maybe I’ll just buy a little baby xylophone toy instead :joy::joy::joy:

Have you tried the piano keyboard in Windows? If you have decent speakers, it works. And, it’s free!
