Using Auto Accompaniment
With Auto Accompaniment, simply select the accompaniment
rhythm you want and the matching accompaniment (drums,
guitar, etc.) will play automatically when you play a chord with
your left hand. It's like having your own personal backup
group along with you wherever you go.
This Digital Keyboard has 275 built-in Auto Accompaniment
patterns, which are divided into five groups. You can edit
built-in rhythms to create your own original rhythms (called
"user rhythms"), which you can save in a sixth group. For
more information, see the separate "Appendix".
