I've got you under my Skin

Postby ken horton » 14 Feb 2018 11:31

A nice tune by Cole Porter, played on a Yamaha EL 900 and keeping it simple but a bit heavy handed I am rather dissatisfied with it andI have tried to make a second version using my present organ ( Orla GT 9000 DLX2 and KN 9000 kbd for backing and repeatedly made such a hash of it I gave up, perhaps later Sorry Cole !

Hi Ken,

It sounded just fine to me , and I enjoyed listening to it, I sometimes think we are our own worst critics
and always believe no matter how good a performance is, we could still do better ? yours was fine believe me

Ken,

Love those 'soft' flute sounds at the beginning. Then a change of sounds as you progress through the piece. Maybe you thought one of the Registrations was a bit on the 'low' side so was sort of 'growling'? But the other 'higher' Registrations were very clear and pleasant to listen to.

But I agree with Brian. It's when we listen to a piece after we have recorded it that it sometimes doesn't sound quite as we intended it should. Either that, or we spot all the mistakes we made. But I never hear any mistakes (mistakes?). I don't know what the performer intended to play, so to me it is just an arrangement that he/she has done.

Well thanks John, Hugh and Brian, I'm a bit gob smacked, I did not expect those comments so thank you all, but yes I do agree we are all probably too self critical
of our own performances and are not hearing it from a third party angle, as Hugh says he hears no mistakes, of course the hearer thinks all the notes are deliberate, i must remember that !

Hi Ken At our keyboard clubs in the north east if we make a mistake it is not the players fault. We say It Is DAMPNESS in the keyboard. Hope this clarifies your problem. All the best John
