    With my Fishman Tripleplay I've been doing all my recordings on my HB sglcut, beats, bass, keyboards, everything except vocals. The one thing that escaped me is doing a keyboard solo that didn't sound like a guitar player with a different voice. Well after a lot of SOUL searching (U see what I did there?:p), and listening to a bunch of Jimmy Smith & Wes Montgomery tunes, I was able to pull off a halfway decent B3 solo. No fast runs or signature guitar type licks was hard but I think I came close to an authentic organ solo that belongs on an old skool Soul jam.

    *Keyboard solo starts at approx 2:40.

    Bangin’! Award for forum member track of the year.

    The key solo in no way sounds like it was played on guitar, way to go!

    Is that you singing?

    I can't listen to the second one. It's telling me I need parental consent in order to listen. o_O

    Duuude! That is killer! Kudos! I would have never guessed it wasn't keys! WOW! I really dig it!

    I don't know why but the second one kind of reminded me of a score from some 70s TV Series....Carlies Angels/Streets of San Francisco kinda vibe...if that makes any sense whatsoever.:confused:

    Very cool!

    What?! I disagree...I gave it a 10, its got a great beat and you can dance to it! I especially liked the Soylent Green reference.

    Yeah I was in a movie mode, the song itself is inspired by the movie Idiocracy.

    Dude, that sounds AWESOME! I dig the solo. Not sure if I am asking this right, but I think you'll get what I am after....what library did that B3 come from?
