Re: Never on a Sunday

Ok, if I could get some way to get Ms Piggy to personally come sing in my video, I think that would erase all doubts for the "proper" key questions... HAHAHA!

Re: Do We Need all those

That's an interesting subject in its own right. Is playing and singing an innate skill or something you have to develop like left and right hands playing simultaneously? Like everything else, it is going to depend on the person. I know I have tried for years to say a word or 2... and it's not happe...

Re: Do We Need all those

Cool 8-) . Maybe we should change the subject to: "Let' Share our Bells and Whistles". Here is my Bells and Whistle: (I think I messed up a couple of the words) https://youtu.be/eOyDahi-gNw Oh man, huge respect to you... first, I cannot sing, and even worse, I cannot even play and talk at the same ...

Re: Never on a Sunday

Great performance and nice sound/video quality using your simple setup. It's a good recipe for making such a performance video without spending the whole weekend doing it. By the way, what foot pedal are you using to send midi messages? Thank-you! There are no MIDI foot pedals here at all. The two ...

Re: New baby at home!

I was gently using the accordion today and noticed that the registers were very stiff and feeling like they were getting stiffer with more use, especially when moving from the high to low register. Curiosity set in so I took off the grill. Well that showed me nothing so I split the accordion at the ...

All Morinos I ever saw (perhaps a couple dozen) were all Free Bass models and all were classical only instruments at the C...

Never on a Sunday

I played a little yesterday and ended up deciding to make a quick recording. Ever since I made my " record yourself with one low end camera " blog post, I needed a demo file of what it could look like, so, yesterday I recorded for the first time my FR-8X and the BK7m together on an easy song. I was ...
