I sing for a band, and play guitar for the same band...lead singer and lead guitarist, but im not solo, my rythm guitarist just needs to work on rhythm. So i was thinking bout taking up piano to Get a new sound in my band...Any suggestions, where i should get started, etc.....im real clueless on most things, real good at guitar, not too great at reading sheet music but i could improve..i guess ill have to improve. so any suggestions at all...i need ur hellp
:note: idk if this is the right thing to be on but it wouldnt fit in the pit..

Get a keyboard with WEIGHTED keys/get lessons. Good luck!

Why weighted with big letters?

Play simple things on the keyboard to familiarize yourself on how to play it, like "Mary Had a little lamb" or "Frere Jacques", then start to read simple things, then progressively get harder. Or apply guitar practice principles to piano.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

most keyboards kids use press down easy, I don't know why but from thinking it makes transition between real piano and keyboards easier... think how off setting it would be to play a grand piano for years then all of a sudden play a 50 dollar yamaha keyboard?
