More Tyros3 Style Videos With Martin Harris

Yamaha's own Martin Harris is back again this week with four new Premium Style demonstrations. Sure, not everyone can sound as good as Martin, but his performances really get across the amazing possibilities in these styles - with a little practice, anyone can create a great performance.

All four of the styles Martin uses in these videos are currently available on Yamaha MusicSoft and Internet Direct Connection.

Oh, and don't forget - new Premium Styles are right around the corner! Keep your eyes peeled next week for more.

Pop Reggae - Originating from Jamaica in the late 1960’s reggae evolved into an important musical genre throughout the world. A characteristic of reggae music is accenting the off-beat creating a very laid back feel – and this Style is very laid back!

70's Country Pop - The 1970’s saw a change in country music’s sound from earthy Nashville to a more pop influenced image. Featuring a mix of acoustic, electric and pedal steel guitars, this Style creates the perfect backing for playing country hits of the 70’s.

Big Band Train - The sound of American big band music is as popular now as it was back in the 1940’s. This upbeat Style has all the band members you would expect – drums, acoustic bass, jazz guitar, piano, saxes and brass – with a complimenting bank of One Touch Settings for you to play along.
