10 Reasons All Keyboardists Need A Harpejji

Posted on September 20 2022

 

The harpejji is a stringed instrument that uses piano like note markings. This means that the harpejji doesn't have a large learning curve for keyboardists. Since the harpejji is a stringed instrument there are many techniques available that are not available on a keyboard/piano.

 

1. Tapping

Just like the legendary guitar players of the 80's and 90's, you can play awesome tapping sequences or melodic tapping sequences comfortably.

2. Vibrato

Vibrato is a vital part of guitar and other stringed instruments playing capabilities. Some keyboards come equipped with vibrato or modulation wheels, however they can lack the feeling of organic pitch bends of stringed instrument. The harpejji makes vibrato a breeze. Play your favorite piano pieces with vibrato that feels natural.

3. Strumming

The harpejji uses an revolutionary system called "Electronic Muting". This enables you to strum many strings while only hearing the strings that you are actually playing.

4. Bends

Just like in some of the most iconic guitar solos a keboardist can bend notes like the greats. The harpejji allows you to play bluesy bend licks while still keeping your keyboardist roots.

5. Slides

Since the harpejji is a fretted instrument you can slide notes up and down the fretboard. Unlocking new sounds can add a new level to your playing.

6. Funky Bass

The harpejji k24 has a two channel output, one for bass and one for treble. The bass channel has added filters to give it an extra kick. Play some of your favorite bass lines with the feel of a real stringed instrument.

7. Transposing

Because of the harpejji’s intuitive note system, changing keys is a breeze. Simply move your chord, scale, or lick up, down, left, or right on the fretboard to change keys. There is no need to memorize countless chord shapes for the same voicings.

8. Harmonics

Harmonics are a great technique to add to your arsenal. They can give a mystical feel to any song.

9. Note pedaling

Throughout the harpejji fretboard, there are unison notes that are easily accessible. This technique can spice up bass lines, melodic sequence, or whatever application you may need them for.

10. Percussion

Thump, slap, scrape, or rhythmically hit the strings for an added level to your playing. This can be an awesome addition if used with a looper pedal or a rhythmic portion of a song.
