Changing the Chord Fingering Type
By changing the chord ﬁngering type, you can automatically produce appropriate accompaniment even
if you don't press all of the notes which comprise a chord. Chord ﬁngering type can be changed from:
[FUNCTION] → [C] STYLE SETTING/SPLIT POINT/CHORD FINGERING → TAB [E E E E ][F]
Following types can be selected, for example.
• Single Finger
This method lets you easily play chords in the accompaniment range of the keyboard using only one,
two or three ﬁngers.
Press the root key only.
• AI Full Keyboard
Playing just about anything, anywhere on the keyboard using both hands – like playing the piano –
produces appropriate accompaniment. You don't have to worry about specifying the chords. (Depending
on the song arrangement, AI Full Keyboard may not always produce appropriate accompaniment.)
For other types, refer to the Reference Manual on the website.
