Country, Dance and Ballad Accompaniments - New Premium Styles This Week

Want new dance beats for your keyboard? A flexible ballad style in 12/8 time? Or maybe something to help you play light country songs? If so, you're in luck - we've got everything you could ask for in this week's new Premium Styles. Mallorca Disco Beat provides the bright synths and heavy bass you need to create perfect dance pop. The dramatic strings in the 60's 12/8 style make it a great fit for any 6/8 ballad. And lastly, with 70's Country Pop, you can play anything from a slow, minimal pop ballad, to a real barn-burner, with instrumentation that ranges from subdued drums and electric piano to full strings and brass.

60's 12/8 and Mallorca Disco Beat are new for the Tyros3, while the 70's Country Pop style, previously only available for the Tyros3, is now available in versions for the Tyros2, CVP series Clavinovas and PSR keyboards.

60's 12/8 - The 12/8 rhythm featured in this Style has spawned some of the most recorded songs of the 20th century. This version has a mid-60's American sound.

The new releases also give us a chance to enjoy two brand new demonstration videos from Martin Harris - take a look below.

Mallorca Disco Beat - A great European dance beat to get you ready for the summer.

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.
