Re: Our day will Come

Lovely version of this old tune. I used to enjoy playing it back in the pre arthritis days.

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.

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.

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: February 2015 Tunes of the Month

IMO, there is a regular core of those who care to upload their musical efforts. Trying to get all forum users to do this is flogging a dead horse no matter what material is being offered.

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
