Re: What music are you listening to at the moment ? (2)

New Year's Day sitting in front of an open fire listening to the Shadows Silver double album on vinyl recorded in 1983.
Some nice playing from bassist Alan Jones as well as Hank Marvin of course.

Re: Two Great Bass Players, both deceased.

Yes, both masters of their instrument.
Jack Bruce was a trained cellist and that is why he could do what he did on the Fretless bass. My Fretless bass playing was strained to say the least and now that my hands are shot, it has been lingering in its case.

Ron

Re: What music are you listening to at the moment ?

Thanks Hugh for posting the link' and Brian glad you liked Lester Young. I would have loved to try and replicate his sax on my Tyros. I now have severe rheumatoid arthritis in both hands and wrists so no longer can play keyboards or my bass with comfort. The end of a promising career :D Regards, Ron

Re: What music are you listening to at the moment ?

These days I listen to all my music on Spotify. One of my favourites is Lester Young with the Oscar Peterson Trio playing " There will never be another you". What a beautiful tone Lester has on the tenor sax. Don't play keyboards any more.

Re: T4 to NP-30 .. Midi

Hi Fred, These were the instructions that worked for me but as I did this several years ago my memory is a bit vague. Be assured that it does work very well. My 2nd keyboard is a NP11. My split point is set to provide the whole T3 keys for melody over the whole range while the lower keys are for cho...

Re: T4 to NP-30 .. Midi

I have my T3 midi connected to NP11. This works as 2 individual keyboards with the NP11 working as left hand chords/bass and T3 for melody right hand. I am sure their is "Twinset up" article somewhere on the forum's archives.

Re: CVP-605 default pedal functions

Could this setting not be saved as part of a Registration? Only a quick fix but possibly you would not want to re-assign this pedal permanently.

My Jukebox

Hi folks,

Anyone trying to access "My Jukebox" recently would have been disappointed as the link had stopped working. However, I can announce that it is fixed and working again. Sad to say that nothing new has been added recently but some are still worth a listen. :lol:

Re: Half As Much

Hi Fred, I thought someone was trying to break in with your noises off Mike. :shock: Sri, but Alma Cogan did not record this song at the tempo you picked : too slow. However, it did match well with the Patsy Cline and Rosemary Clooney versions. Before I do any recordings, I always listen to the avai...

Re: Night & Day

Hi Jack, Glad I did not cause any upset to you. I could class myself as a fun player with no intention of ever playing outside the house. My only advantage is that I can sight read most music but almost unable to play anything by ear as my memory to retain a melody/chords is zero. I am intending to ...

Re: MARY ANN

Hi Fred,

This would have benefitted by an increase in Tempo and a change of Style. How about a Calypso style which is more in keeping with the original? This is only my personal view and we all play in whatever manner we are most comfortable with. As always love your video :D

Re: Night & Day

Hi Jack, I was trying to avoid any offence to someone who has been playing keyboards for years with great success. It is not quite 3 years since I bought my first keyboard and I do not really have grounds to be ultra critical of any long standing players such as yourself. However, I was really taken...

On Days Like These by Matt Monroe

This was written by Quincy Jones, recorded by Matt Monro and was the main theme in the original film of The Italian Job starring Michael Caine. I got the dots Yesterday from our dear founder Mike via Facebook, so this was recorded in record time. https://app.box.com/s/4303ozdhnv8bqkxqy2gk Regards, Ron

Your version beats Bob Dylan's hands down. His voice has gone for good IMO.
