Yeah, that's what I thought myself - "sounds" that is. Just trying out the various "instruments" - they sound Pretty Good (it's about a mid-range keyboard, not a toy, but not really Pro level) smile. What are "tracks"?

The percussion tracks, go through them all and find some you’d like to revisit or play songs over. Also try the dual function so you can combine two different instruments

sun Hey dominator, that's cool you got an instrument! (avoiding the k word)

Sunny

You are the Sunshine of My Life

You are My Sunshine - one of the old forever songs of New Orleans. I've heard every kind of band from Preservation Hall Jazz to Brass Bands to Heavy Metal to Cajun Zydeco perform that song live.

Er - sorry, I've never heard that song. You could give me a Youtube to link to it I suppose, but...I'd kinda like to start my instrument journey with a tune I already know (and love), if you know what eye mean..... smile Thx for the suggestion though.......

Yes, that makes sense, was surprised you asked for suggestions. Pick a song YOU love. Probably way too old school, but everyone I knew always started with Louie Louie because it's easy and you can basically sing any words beyond the first line. Good luck and practice, ha ha.
