Thanks, Raymond. The piece still needs a prominant organ part near the begining which the piano kind of covers for right now. And some accents throughout. I think the original used a Hammond B3 rock organ. But I was just trying out an organ that came with K2 and it sounds quite a bit smoother than SI's which is kind of rough and raw sounding. I'm thinking maybe SI's would be cool at the begining and that smooth one might blend better for the accents. We'll have to play a bit and see.
Great gob on this, Howard, a gutsy performance.
Were it me, I think I might tend toward being a
little more aggressive with the brass; and let that
B3 hammer out a few hot riffs. Given the energy
of the vocals, the performance can easily carry
hotter backup from the band, to me.
Thanks for the listen David. Got a chance to work on it a little more last night and sat down with a horn player. Turns out the swells I was trying to do were backwards... silly me. Here's my latest effort:
