My Collection Of .....

Some people collect stamps.  So do I.

Some people collect coins.  So do I.

But I seem also to collect musical keyboards.  My sixth has just arrived. (I can't read music.) I just fiddle around with them

While I am on my sixth, I should point out that I have given three away.  I have, in my apartment, only three.

Each one is a Casio, and each one I get is larger than the one before it.  My favoite up to now has hundreds of tones and over a hundred rhythms. My fun has been to choose a rhythm at random, listen for a moment, and then begin improvising a simple melody line that seems to fit. 

I make what passes for music at the old folks home. 

My newest Casio keyboard is model WK-3300 and has even more rhythms and tones, AND IT RECORDS.  So these "gems" I create can be saved.  Huzzah. 

Needless to say, I bought it online. 

My plan is to make some simple improvizations, record them and then play my harmonica in accompaniment. 

AND with my laptop computer, I can even put them on CD's. 

Nashville, here I come.

Your enthusiasm for the keyboards will further the quality of your improvisation.   The more hours I spent on an individual interest the more I learn and become proficient at it.   I think your adding harmonica will give it a certain personalization.
 Since I have no musical talent I am lost when it comes to that artform.    With a headset you should be able to practice and create in the hours when other's are asleep.     Have a good time with this new purchase.     mark
