I am already! (for my meager skills)

It's funny, it is definitely harder to play but it's easier because of that. I have more control. I can definitely tell where my keyboard was lacking in dynamic control (though again, I'm a noob and don't have much skill yet)

I'm just sorry that I have to go to work two 3 more days before I get a day off with this thing!!

Play a piece or a few chords each day before you leave
for work.,yet as they say" absence makes the heart grow fonder"
Apparently a great cellist used to play Bach every morning because he believed it was a blessing on his
home.

I quite agree with LadyBird. Depending on your family’s schedule, get up 20 minutes early and play 20 minutes before work. Then schedule time before or after dinner to practice some more. Keep locked in to your schedule. Before you know it, you’ll know your piano and your playing will improve quickly. Enjoy! This is an exciting time!

Now that I'm retired I play the piano more than I used to. And, I enjoy it as much as ever! I recorded a new music video Sunday afternoon of an impromptu boogie tune and posted it on my YT channel. It's gotten over 600 views in a little over two days. Heck, maybe I can play a piano after all... (NOT smile ).

See what you have to look forward to, Bob! smile

All the best!

Congratulations and thanks for a great narrative of your impressions, especially being new to acoustic pianos. I too was raised in the Bronze Age, when transistor radios had little brag badges if they had 7 transistors instead of just 5. May you and your new Weber find years of enjoyment together!
