New Premium Styles - 80's Hard Rock and Mambo Rhythms

Today we've released two great new Premium Styles that have distinctive sounds, but are flexible enough to be used in all kinds of performances.

This week's styles are 80's Rock Anthem, a melodic, versatile  and hard driving rock beat, and Pop Mambo, a fun swinging latin dance beat with modern flourishes.

The new styles are available in four versions especially optimized for Yamaha keyboards.  Versions are designed for the Tyros3 and CVP-509, the Tyros2, CVP-505/409/407 and PSR-S910, and a final version is available for all other recent PSR and CVP models.

As always, Martin Harris is here to demonstrate the new styles.  Check out videos of his performances below.

80's Rock Anthem - Rock out with this powerful hard rock Style capturing the rebellious attitude of American rock heroes of the 80’s.

Pop Mambo - Not strictly Mambo, this Style recreates a chart topping US and European take on the genre.

On a side note, if you're still learning the ropes as far as playing with styles goes, you might want to take a look at some of Yamaha's videos on the subject.  Start off learning about the single finger mode, and then, when you're ready, check out the multi finger mode.  Don't forget to check back in with us next month for more new styles!
