I've played piano and keyboards for about 65 years. I had some lessons, but not for too many years. I didn't do music academically (my degree is in math, heh). As Methos suggests, learning chord structure and musical composition on a piano is much more visual and sensical compared to guitar. I highly recommend it! (Cougar keyboard sample )
