Thanks for listening Brian. I will keep away from " Hard Days Night."
From organ to strings at the touch of a button my next one is No 49 - "Can't help Falling In Love With You."

Hi Keith. Thanks for kind comments. Liked the Beatles number would never thought to have played it as you did but it was a pleasant listen.
Can't help was also a good listen with a nice style. The only bit I was not sure of was the tapping rthymn. John

Hi Keith,

Well played and voiced , not sure if it was a snare drum or Hi-Hat that was producing the tapping sound
but did find it a little distracting, but other than it was a flawless performance which I did enjoy,


P.S , It may take me a few days or so to get around to hard days night as I still have a couple of backing tracks left to do

Hi Brian,

That was No 74 in the book and very enjoyable too. Was that what was called a "stomp" back in the day? Well arranged and played.

This Challenge has run for about three weeks now. Yourself, John and I have kept it going in the hope that those who need a long time to put together a recording would manage to do so but sadly that has not happened. The fact that dozens of people took the opportunity to download the music but then did not use it for the intended purpose speaks volumes in itself. As a result I have decided that I must accept that not only is the organ trade dying a lingering death but also the majority of organ/keyboard owners have little interest in expanding their repertoire and playing something new.

New Facebook Group for players of all standards.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/357290161278810/

The group Practical Organ and Keyboard Players has just been formed to give players an opportunity to play music related to a theme and share their efforts with like minded people. It is not for the publication of previously recorded music. More information is available on the site.

Keith .. I downloaded your 101 Hits For Buskers book .. although I already have it. But it's nice to have it in digital format.

That's a strange comment you made (in green, above). I thought this Forum was supposed to be a 'fun place to be', and not somewhere where you got told off for not doing your homework!

So here's one from me, from the book:

Whiter Shade Of Pale

https://app.box.com/s/ato8ar8dd9au4ncdqyp18sc381zzvrgs

This has always been one of my favourites. They did say it was based on Air on the G String by Bach. I do play that one as well, and must admit that when playing either of them I frequently end up playing the other.

Hi Hugh,

I have to say that ranks among one of the best versions of that I have heard.

Thanks Brian. I do like to listen to these 'oldies' and try to emulate the sounds they had. Thing is, although I have a band at my fingertips, I don't have a 'singer', so every piece has to be played as an 'instrumental' version. I had a friend (sadly no longer with us) who played both guitar and drums in a pop band (not at the same time!) and he used to say that what he loved about 60's music was that he could hear exactly what the drummer was doing, exactly what the guitars were playing .. and all the things going on in the backing. Having all this in his head, he would create his own Styles on his AR to accompany what he played.

Hi Hugh,
A lovely performance of A Whiter Shade of Pale. :D :D :D
I have previously posted two different versions of that tune. One quite similar to your own and the other was experimenting with auto accompaniment.
Having just listened to the auto accompaniment one, I wish I hadn't bothered as I don't like it.

Hi Hugh. A lovely version. Nice style and sounds. A particular favourite as it was on the go when my wife and I were courting. John
Hi Brian. A more acoustic version but enjoyable. The experimental was also worth a listen. John
