Weekly Thing #12: Steez
When I was growing up, I always played on real pianos rather than electronic synthesizers. I never had anything against synths, but let’s face it; Beethoven sounds much better on a Yamaha than a Yamaha (um, they make pianos AND synths.) As a result, I don’t usually choose a synth sound for my solos.
This week, I’m trying something different. I’m using the sound from an old ARP Pro-Soloist. It just seemed to fit the groove of this week’s song. The song runs 1:20m and is called “Steez.” No, I am not making up words now; but if I were, “steez” would be on the list, along with “flefftuple” and “bordlaudle.” “Steez” is a combination of “style” & “ease.” I’m being ironic here, since I’m usually capable of neither.
Once again, I’ve said too much.[powerpress]
