The Thummer is easier to learn

With all music basically boiling down to the relationships that exist between individual sounds, it makes sense that a modern instrument should make it easier for a person to be able to explore a wide variety of these relationships. While traditional instruments often have only a limited expressive range, the new Thummer gives a person the biggest range possible because of several distinct features. This new instrument was created with this idea in mind, using a layout that makes it easier than ever to go from one sound to the next. The major advantage that makes the Thummer easier to play is found in the design of the playing area. The six rows of the isometric keyboard have either nine or ten keys, with each key representing a specific note. The natural lines that are formed by the layout of the keys create a diagonal scale that can be played without the musician needing to change their fingering at any point. With a normal instrument, the fingering must be changed with nearly every change in sound, making it very difficult to learn. In the same manner that a person learns to type on a computer keyboard, they will be able to start playing a Thummer. Another area where the Thummer is easier to learn than an older instrument is with the dynamic expression controls. As a person becomes more experienced with the Thummer, they can start using the joystick that is on the front of the keyboard. This allows the pitch of the individual notes and sounds to be bent. In learning how to play, a person can focus on a single feature at a time and gradually progress to a point where they are proficient on the instrument. In contrast with other instruments that require complete learning of all concepts at the same time, a person will move from beginner to expert in a much shorter time.
