    I've set myself a goal of three months to learn and cover Bill Buford's epic percussion masterpiece, Roundabout.

    Great tune.
    Although, seems like Chris Squire should also get percussion props for that slappy/hammering bass line. Ha!
    Good luck knocking out that back beat Wansen.

    Funny story. Back in 1972 when the song came out, Never knew what a "Roundabout" was, until I visited a London train station about 2 years later. Learn something new every day.

    Couldn't have said it better about Squire, that bass is magnificent to the point of distraction. Instead of playing Buford's complex arrangements, I find myself keeping simple time so I can enjoy it. I actually had to download the isolated Drum version to make any progress.

    We recently had our first Roundabout installed in the next town over.

    Some are still trying to figure out how to use it.

    Speaking of YES, Here's one of my all time fav keyboard players.
    Mr. Rick Wakeman with an instrumental version of YES's "CLOSE TO THE EDGE" on his piano.
    Much as I have tried with my KB, I cannot get the amazing opening 30 seconds down.
    Suspect the action on his $100,000 Steinway grand piano is a little better/quicker than my digital Kb.
    Truly a talented artist, Wakeman and Keith Emerson ruled the keyboards back in the 1970s.

    Wow.

    He's wildly impressive.

    Kudos to you even trying that; it sounds monumentally difficult.

    I'm glad I play an enharmonic instrument.

    Since we've been talking about our musical talents (and in my case, lack thereof lol), nevertheless, here's a karoke of me singing (dream a little dream, a Mama Cass song) that I sang into my cra#%y mic and then edited in Mixpad where I added the parts that are harmonized. That was fun. Off tune a bit here and there but had fun singing it. I only sing in the shower, btw.




    Here's Mamma Cass singing that song... soooooo talented!

    That's a classic!

    Mama Cass was a tremendous talent.
