Appendix B
About the CD
••••••••••••••••••••••••••a*
rhe audio CD that comes with this book features all of the great songs you play in Piano For Dummies. I recorded most of the songs with a piano sound. (How appropriate.) But give the CD a whirl, and you also hear some surprises.
That’s right. Many of the CD tracks use various synthesizer sounds to create the illusion of a band or orchestra playing along with you. But you can still hear the keyboard part loud and clear above the rest of the music.
Each CD track is preceded by one full measure of “clicks.” These clicks tell you how fast to play and help you synchronize with the recording. Think of the clicks as your own personal drummer counting off the beats of the song for you.
Here’s a comprehensive list of all the stuff that you find on the audio CD:
