I did a little recording this morning. And just to let you know how easily distracted I am, I was actually working on an orchestral score, when I decided to take a break and try something different. The result will never be mistaken for “orchestral.” (Not if I have anything to say about it.)
I own an old Rhodes Stage 73 piano that I am in the process of restoring. Here’s a pic. Idn’t she cute?
I’ve already repaired the mechanics of it and I am in the process of replacing the old Tolex on the outside. More on that another time. (And, yes, I meant to say “idn’t;” that’s how I role…OK, that was a typo.)
So, this morning I was playing the Rhodes and decided to run it through my equally old Fender Twin Reverb Amp. I also added some distortion to give it kind of an early 70s, Faces sound. Yes, that was Rod Stewart’s band before he became the (ahem) performer he is today.
It’s a short piece (1:21) but it’s long on attitude. Wait, no, the attitude is pretty short too now that I look at it in the right lighting.
