Chas posted>>> Hey keyofg, just curious about your screen name. It just reminded me of an old organ player I used to know around Atlantic City known only as "F# Lewis". All I remember is that he was a great organ player who knew and could play every tune, but (you guessed it) only in the key of F#. Was just wondering if there were any history behind your moniker? Curious minds want to know


Dear Curious Chas

Back in January of 1999 I started what was probably the first e-magazine on the web, featuring keyboard players, It was called the Key of "G" for no reason other than my name is George. The website was dedicated to Technics keyboards and featured guest artists, a tutorial, jukebox, a little California history, a recipe page... yeah, some keyboard players actually cook, a page featuring Organ players ,links, guest book, etc. The Key of "G" last published in May of 2001. Many original readers and contributors to the Key of "G" are still here on the Synth.

Take care Chas. Remember... curiosity killed the cat. Yeah, I know... but satisfaction brought it back.

Thanks. I often think, no telling how far ol' F# Lewis might have gone if they'd had a transpose button back then .

Shame he couldn't afford to get one of those Steinway's that they built for Irving Berlin (who only played in Ab, I think!) that the entire action could be moved sideways to position it under different keys...

I saw it at the Steinway showroom in Manhattan when I used to live there. Fascinating place.

Hi,I am a member of this forum for a long time A technics KN7000 and yamaha T3
Yamaha give free DVD to US yamaha players but in Canada there is nothing for the owners of Yamaha keyboards players.
Why? I thing its discrimination

That's just plain Bull, Diki. I know for a fact that he only played in G#.
