â€¢ The accompaniment keyboard can be used for playing chords only. No sound will be produced if you try playing single melody notes on the accompaniment keyboard.
See the â€śFingered Chord Chartâ€ť on page A-5 for details on playing chords with other roots. *1: Inverted fingerings cannot be used. The lowest note is the root. *2: The same chord can be played without pressing the 5th G.
â€¢ Except for the chords specified in note *1 above, inverted fingerings (i.e. playing E-GC or G-C-E instead of C-E-G) will produce the same chords as the standard fingering. â€¢ Except for the exception specified in note*2 above, all of the keys that make up a chord must be pressed. Failure to press even a single key will not play the desired FINGERED chord.
