You mean like a jazz organist? smile smile smile


ABSOLUTELY! Those guys set the stage for the rest of us.
Everyone, and everything I listen to is my teacher. Every instrument, every voice, every sound in nature ... they are all my private tutor ... 24/7 for free.

Just saw a taped performance of the Young Rascals....with a BASS player! He sounded good, but it wasn't the same. Maybe Felix is getting tired!

When I started to learn it was classical piano all the way, then of all things banjo, mandolin then electric 5 string bass. Then during that time landed back onto an arranger for teaching and backing. But to play I get board just playing "styles" and on the single stuff left hand , so back to full bass on the left hand - more satisfying.
I am not a professional like you guys here, but it is sure good to play at but church and record with an arranger knowing you can play all the instruments yourself. I am also frustrated sax player ( never learnt till I got an arranger that simulates it for me). That's an option about these boards, that you can almost be a Glen Miller or a Stevie Ray Vaughan or Jimmy Smith; and play your own bass lines under them.
Getting old sucks, but so do straws.
