Good stuff Donny
Damn I feel old as I remember seeing his TV show when I was very young.
I think that may have been one of my early influences that drew me to music.
One more trivia bit. One of Liberaces early gigs was at Pals Cabin in West Orange NJ.
Got to,see him once at the Garden State Arts Center. Memorable preformance.

Com'on Donny you just don't want lunch. You want me to bring my BK9 !!!

I'll let you know when we plan to get back up there. In the meantime keep bugging Fran. Tell him if he takes the BK out of the house you will provide security so no one steals it.

No.....they're not, Donny. A guitar and a saxophone are "two different entities." An arranger board and a piano are played the same way. Only difference being you don't sustain notes in the left hand when playing a piano. Which does make it difficult. It takes me sometimes 1-2 days in having to switch playing styles between arranger, piano, and accordion.

I hear you Bill. Between you and me, that's why I just can't seem to nail that one pattern. On top of that, I'm still working on the "walking bass." The WB is coming along but painfully slow.

The days of "having enough time" are gone, never to return. I think I'm going to have to face reality and give up on JLL riffs or Boogie Woogie patterns, or most likely both. I'd rather spend the time playing Musette accordion (even though that will never quite pay the bills).

Mark

Maybe don't ditch the Boog Maybe try them with both hands and then throw in some if your own licks and fills. Kinda two birds. The trick like anything else is slow but I'm too damn impatient. I never thought I'd need a metronome in a keybaord but use the FP90s all the time. Really shows you how off you can go with tempo.
Have fun with the accordion, a great niche to have mastered.
