I hope this isn't too dumb a of a question. I have some musical background, but not with string instruments, and it's been quite a few years. I can read music, but I'm having a hard time doing more than just "jamming". I would like to play, say the piano, as I would a real piano. I'm not clear on the use of scales and which one to choose.
Also, I was kinda expecting a key layout that was similar to that of a keyboard. For example, right now I'm looking at the playing area and I haven't been able to find a layout that has consecutive piano keys. I'm unclear how "scale" relates to "keys' and how they both relate to what what I see in the playing area. For example, what I'm seeing now has A#, but the next button is C. Where's B?
Maybe I don't know as much about music as I thought I did (which is entirely possible), but I guess I'm just looking to play a song like I had a piano or trumpet and a sheet of music in front of me and I'm not clear what I should be choosing to do that.
