So this is always fun. Euhm I don’t even know where to begin. Lol


I think like with a live performance and was the singer who would lower the key. So ok didn’t practice that so as a keyboard player. Well just use the transpose button.
Ok no problem for that song then. Unfortunately I forgot to switch it of after the song.....

And the next one was like a complete piano intro when after a minute the band kicks in. Ooooooops ok you can imagine what happens then. Lol.

Share you’re story’s. Please.

Major fuck up this. Ok it was a ok band so they picked up the new transposed key pretty quick. But still. Haha it was a wtf moment. Little bit harder for the singers but ok.

And this has happened multiple times. So hate using transpose it leads to errors and faults. But stil advice for you all. Only use it if there is no other way/. Haha

Took me some seconds to realize what happened. So ok well piano and band in two different keys. It was a disaster.

Yamaha s90es has no lighted up button for transpose so it’s in a menu. Didn’t noticed it.
Whis it was for a few people. But no like 500 or so. Gehehe wel can laugh about it now but for sure that was a stress moment.

I was fronting the band OutedgE was playing my guitar with A wireless rig jumped off the stage and was running around the crowd, But I was supposed to be singing (very drunk). No harm done the guys in the group pitched in and kept the singing going. Review of the video was a little embarrassing. Tequila :W
