THE QUARTAL BOARD IS A FULLY PROFESSIONAL MUSIC KEYBOARD; HOWEVER, ITS FEATURES ALLOW FOR SIMPLIFICATION, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MUSICALLY. IT IS DESIGNED TO BE A FULLY SOLO INSTRUMENT; BUT WHY NOT A SINGLE-NOTE ENSEMBLE INSTRUMENT?
THE QB GRID IS EASY TO VISUALIZE.
SOLO: THE QB CAN BE PLAYED WITH A SINGLE FINGER OR STYLUS.
DUET: THIS WOULD ALLOW MELODY PLUS COUNTERPOINT.
ENSEMBLE: THERE IS AN AMAZING LIBRARY OF MUSIC TO CHOOSE FROM.

I have created a new--REVOLUTIONARY--design for a music keyboard. It is based on the fingerboard pattern of the Quartal Guitar (EADGCF). However, it has taken on a life of its own. The QUARTAL BOARD (QB) has been the fire in my gut since 1973. The attributes of the QB were apparent to me upon inception--it has taken a lifetime to create the proof needed for this presentation.
