Hi

According to the owners manual (available on-line) the demo for GRAND PIANO 1 in the key of C is title ORIGINAL and composer ORIGINAL.

There is also a version of Fur Elise which says its in the key of C2 (not sure what that means).

The latter piece you can obtain from a multitude of places. The first one I doubt very much has been officially published, so you'd probably need somebody to transcribe it for you.

I do not own a P45 so can't help any further.

Cheers

OK. I just followed the link under the video. The whole effort took a couple of seconds. I didn't even know what piece was being discussed, since I don't have that piano. I think the best thing, then, is to figure it out by ear. If nothing else, it would be good ear training, probably more immediately useful than long strings of intervals as is usually done.

I didn't take it that way, but I have to admit to being a bit embarrassed that I didn't check those links closer before posting. smile We were about to leave to run errands and I just glanced through the forum and saw the OP's post, did a quick google and post. smile

Hello Simon and Tony,

Thank you for your replies, trying by ear is a good idea and I have tried, but I am not good at that. So still hoping.
Best to you both. Anyone other ideas?

Hi

Here is a link to a performance of the sheet music Tony found.
I don't think its the piece you want, but it's very good and worth a watch.

My sort of playing. I reckon I could master in a couple of years :-)

There are inaccuracies in the notes, so it’s best to learn by ear.

Hi

This is the first demo for the P-115 and it starts with C and F chords, so this could be it.
They may use the same demos on different instruments.

A bit Bruce Hornsby like.

Goodness, you've found it, thank you so much. Certainly a bit Bruce Hornsby, a good player that man, but.. and I am not certain about this but I think it is not EXACTLY the Yamaha one, not that my ear is any good either!

I am fascinated now, how would get onto you tube? Yamaha obviously don't want to give the game away.

Thanks to all of you, forums seem to bring the best out of people.
