Yamaha’s Music Finder song list is included as a major feature of many new keyboards and Clavinova digital pianos. The Music Finder provides an extensive library of song titles – together with an appropriate choice of accompaniment style and melody voice.

Because of differences in copyright law between countries the original Music Finder list, which is installed at source, is presented either with the song titles scrambled in a ‘cryptic’ format or with an abridged version of the song title list. An upgraded version has been created for Yamaha’s UK customers and may be downloaded here…
