Just a quick and dirty one-shot of an old Buddy Johnson tune, "Since I fell for you", that I remember from my childhood. Don't know why I suddenly thought about it and I'm not much of a blues player but.....what the hey. Korg PA1x drums, VP550 background vocals (just to help identify the song), Nord C1 organ (of course), Tyros II rhythm guitar (jazz guitar patch), Korg PA1x piano (I like my Fantom G piano better, normally, but the Korg cuts through better on something like this), Nord C1/PK7a (pedals) bass.

I didn't use any compression (since it was mainly 'noodling') so it sounds pretty lame through PC speakers (probably sounds lame anyway ). I'll probably try to find it on the net, listen to it, and re-do it tomorrow (after I see what the 'right' chords are ).


Oops, almost forgot. The lousy sax imitation is the Korg PA1x. The Tyros II sax is better but I think the Korg one sounds more soulful. JMO.

I thought the sounds and pickin' were excellent. Couldn't hear the vocals much; I guess they were just for a guideline.
Makes me want to have a drink of hard liquor!
Thanks for sharing.

Love this kind of music! The Nord sounds fantastic! In other words, you make it sound fantastic!

Thanks, Chas!

That is a treat Chas. I just love that smokey blues style. The Nord sounds great. Your noodling is spot on.

chas ... thanks for another addition to the iPOD ... I love this stuff ... and the vocals are like one might hear in some smokey jazz club, when the artist is an 'instrumentalist' and not a 'vocalist' ...
I really like your playing, but you could boost the vocals without hurting the tune at all ...
Coincidentally, this is a tune I was 'working on' on a couple of months ago, but dropped it because I couldn't get the right organ sound ... guess I need a Nord ... ...
thnx agn,
t. cool
