Re: Disco It!

Not sure that I should be 'bopping' at my age, but I'll give it a go. One that comes to mind is one we played in the Scottish Country Dance Band I was in. Piano Accordion, Drums and Piano (me). The piano was more often than not 'out of tune', and the keys 'stuck' when I played them, but eased off as...

Re: Music from Films

Dave, If you do manage to play Feed The Birds please go ahead and put it up in here. Members ask me sometimes if it is OK to put up a piece that somebody else has done. Well yes, of course it is! Two people would never play a piece the same, and it's always interesting to hear how somebody else has ...

Recording a chord sequence in Song Creator.

There is one thing you could do on a Tyros keyboard that you don't seem to be able to do on the new Genos, and that is to do with recording a chord sequence in Song Creator. On the Genos you can certainly record a chord sequence, but only if you use a preset Genos style. If you modify an existing st...

Re: Music from Films

This one is from Mary Poppins, which came out in 1964. My wife and I went to see this in Exeter, but hadn't looked at the bill-board properly. We just saw 'Julie Andrews' and assumed we were going to see 'The Sound Of Music'. Quite a shock then, but we were completely mesmerised. An amazing film whe...

Re: A Swingin' Safari

Oh boy! That is very good! I like they way you are adjusting the 'backing parts', bringing them 'in' and 'out' at various points in the tune. This is the mark of a true 'arranger'. On my AR I have what is called a ' D ' button. This 'holds' a Style for the whole piece. Would never use it as I like t...

Re: Flower Waltz

Tony, That is a very busy piece! And with the syncopation you have put into it I had difficulty even finding a 'one, two, three'. But with that straight 'waltz beat' in the middle I did finally get the hang of it. You must have had at least 50 multitrack sheets to put into this one. Very interesting...

Re: Music from Films

Brings back the memories! Nice switch to the violin in the middle. Brideshead Revisited is a 1981 British television serial, produced by Granada Television for broadcast by the ITV network.

Re: Fanfare

Tony, Interesting! I suppose this is similar to playing in an orchestra. Every instrument has it's own 'part' to play. So each instrument does it's own thing, but not as in being played separately (ie. multi-tracked), but all playing together at the same time. Couldn't do that on an organ/keyboard a...

Hi Ken, I can see your dancers trying to fit their slow, slow, quick/quick, slow to your tune .. but to be honest, I didn't have any trouble doing it! But which did I prefer? Well, there are three reasons why I overwhelmingly voted for version 2. 1. I am not too keen on 'Theatre Organ' sounds. And I...

Re: Fools Rush In

Charles, What always fascinates me is how a song can be arranged in different ways. Your piece is very smooth and relaxing, and the style you have played it in is very much in the style of the era in which it was written, the 1940s. Then you have Elvis Presley putting his inimitable style on it in 1...

Re: Colors of the wind.

Hi George, It last. Another piece on a Genos played by a real Member! It certainly sounds completely different to other pieces you have played. A more intricate arrangement is the best way of describing it. You have certainly brought out the best in this instrument. That was a beautiful ending too. ...

Re: Once Upon a Time in the West

Hi Dave, That is a very smooth performance. Loved the voicing. The chimes at the beginning were great, with a good 'sustain' on them. A very dramatic entry with the 'horns' in the middle. The 'strings' are some of the best I have heard on any organ. You must have really enjoyed putting this arrangem...

Re: Fanfare

Or did you just add the bits in as you went along, 'by ear'? Anyway, it's a great piece. Brian .. Ajay mentions that he has us...

Re: LayR Multi Timbral Synthesizer Demo for the iPad

I am really looking forward to you using some of these iPad sounds in your music. If you have an iPhone 6 then you might have to increase the Tempo of the pieces you play as Apple have been 'slowing down' their older iPhones?

Brian, When you said, "Three chords" I thought they were going to be eg. C, F and G! But one of them is a very prominent 'minor' chord which makes it different from the start (and at the start). Listening to some of these pieces you have put up recently, and knowing you played in a band in...
