New Premium Styles - Moving Ballads and Electric Blues

This week's new Premium Styles feature authentic electric blues grooves and soulful ballad backing tracks to take you back to the heydays of the boy band.

As with the our other new Premium Styles, Cool Chillout and Hot Big Band, each style comes in multiple varieties, to guarantee compatibility with your particular keyboard model.

Martin Harris is back to demonstrate the new styles, and his harmonica solo in the blues demo is truly not to be missed.  This video in particular really shows the type of amazing sounds and performances you can create with the Tyros3 and Premium Styles.

The Blues - Created at the end of the 19th century by the African-Americans in the deep South of the United States, the Blues is characterised by specific chord progressions, possibly the most well known is the twelve bar blues. This style recreates the famous sound of the Blues in the 1950's.

90's Pop Ballad - The 90's saw superstardom for a new concept – boy bands. And in the UK, it was their Pop Ballad songs which became an instant hit their with many adoring fans.

More new styles are in store in the weeks to come - so keep your eyes and ears peeled!
