Re: I Walk the LIne

Hi Roy, You've played this one with a rhythm and a backing, which suits it well. If we had played this in the band, I would have played that repeating piano bit. This seems to be a Johnny Cash number from 1958. Don't know much about him at all! here is a clip of him singing this in Denmark in 1971 ....

Re: April in Portugal

Hi Roy,

Just got back from a short break away and am catching up. Yes, you've got the chords for that one sussed. It's not often that one gets a song in both major and minor keys. Thanks for posting.

Re: Still Got The Blues.

Hi George,

Your arrangements just get better and better! I haven't heard a 'blues' played in a minor key before, so this was quite an eye-opener. No, an 'ear-opener'. A real pleasure to listen to.

Re: April in Portugal

Hi Jacko, This is one we used to play in the band in the late 50s. Had completely forgotten about it so you have made my day with this 'blast from the past'. Loved the Rhythm/Style you chose for it, which is just how we used to play it. There are some strange harmonies in this, particularly in the s...

Re: Blue Moon

Hi Roy, This is a tune I have always liked, and it sounded good with your 'mellow sounding' organ. But the way you played it (the 'phrasing'), with the emphasis on the notes in the first verse being different to the second, made me look up the WORDS for this song.

Re: Black is Black - Los Bravos - 1966

Hi Brian, A good, striking bass on this one. Love a good bass. Great sounds from your Korg. A superb recording! And in STEREO, as you will see from the below: https://i.imgur.com/CsF7JTH.jpg You can see quite clearly that the left and right channels are different (Top = left channel; Bottom = right ...

Re: Mood Indigo

Hi Roy,

Lovely 'brassy' sound you have got there. And some super chords. I always have thought this piece would sound good played by a 'brass band'. Here is Mood Indigo played by Halmstad Brass.

Re: Till There Was You

Hi Val, The Music Man is one of my favourite musicals (for the music) and this one in particular has some wonderful chords in it. It's a funny thing, music. When I say .. some wonderful chords in it I am referring to the chords you have used in your 'arrangement'. The original, from the soundtrack o...

Re: Isn't It Romantic

Hi Roy, Well, if you're playing your own bass pedals to fit the chord then my hat off to you. I got told off the other day for playing my second bass note (the 'fifth') below the tonic note. I was playing an F in the bass and then played the C below it. I was told I should play the C above that F. I...

Re: Lara's Theme

Hi John,

You have some very nice sounding strings on that keyboard. I always did like the Yamaha 'strings' and have those on my AR too. Liked the contrast with the brassy sound (mellow trumpet).

Re: Isn't It Romantic

Hi Roy,

Nice to hear an organ played 'as an organ'. If you are playing this from the sheet music then you really would have to concentrate as you have three 'staves' to read .. Upper, Lower and Bass. You have got that Bass 'note perfect'.

Re: Gimme Gimme Gimme.

Hi George,

That's a great beat for that one, with a nice arrangement of voices to go with it.

They all say, when writing TEXT you can't get a 'reversed' B for ABBA.

Anybody got any ideas?

Re: Nearer My God To Thee

Hi Dave,

You could almost see the bows of those violins and cellos playing across the strings, they were so realistic. Nice change to brass, and then a superb choir. And a novelty ending with that Church bell.
