Guitar to piano - any advice how to

Post by Tesherar » 15 Nov 2019, 10:01

This may seem like a stupid place to put this question – but I'm after a guitarist view/advice.

I want to learn piano.
I have reasonable music knowledge, understanding scales, modes, and chords etc, I can read music (slowly) and can play electric and acoustic guitar enough to annoy the neighbours or an audience locked in room! I'm really a singer songwriter.

I should like to learn the piano. To help with performance options and song creating. (And my left hand needs to rest a bit)

I would be a total beginner. I have access to a great Yamaha electric piano.
Need advice on perhaps what book to get or on line program.
Is there a keyboard equivalent to Rocksmith!!

Any advice please.
Thank you.

Have a look at The Complete Piano Player by Kenneth Baker.

It's well written and uses pop standards/classics rather than classical pieces. It's designed for adults and progression is well paced.
