Hi Paula,

Loved the way you have played this one. Superb voicing in the backing, and that little bit of 'harmony singing' is just wonderful. I did watch the video of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania dancing, but to be honest .. I prefer your version of My Way.

With regard to your comment 'Remember, do not believe every thing you see' .. are you trying to tell me that is NOT you singing and playing the keyboard? :?: :( :( :D :D

Paula,

Now that you mention it, I can see that this is a 'live' show. Right at the beginning I can see people standing with mobiles/cameras and taking pictures. I didn't see that first time round. I was concentrating on what you were doing (... and your outfit!).

Hi Paula,

You said:

I am always amazed at just how much electronics has advanced over the years that enables us to do this. Do you remember those early keyboards we had? Chords to the left of the split and 'monophonic' to the right of the split. So you couldn't play chords with the right hand if you were using a 'Style'. No colour television; no mobiles. And no Broadband .. we all did 'Pay as you go'. And it made your phone line 'engaged' for hours! I was the first person in Weston-super-Mare to do on-line banking (for our Hotel) and got my picture and a write-up in the local paper!

The organ I have (the Yamaha AR) works with files on a floppy disk. A .b00 file (containing the Registrations) and an .evt file containing the 'performance'. When you play it in your organ, first the Registrations are loaded up; and then the organ 'plays'. All the Registration lights change mimicking what you did when you played the piece. It's like one of those 'pianolas', only the keys don't go up and down. Well, I sent one of the pieces I had recorded to a lady friend of mine in London. She was playing the piece through her organ when the doorbell rang. She answered the door, and as she came in her friend asked, "Pat, who is that playing your organ?". "It's Hugh," she said, "from Weston-super-Mare." "Oh", she replied. "I didn't know he was on holiday and had come to visit you." Then went into her Lounge and was amazed to hear the organ playing but nobody sat at it! Couldn't believe her eyes!

yes and to think we can record music and send it all over the world in seconds,actually watch a war live on T.V the world has become small
I have always had an interest in music but was never able to take lessons or read music,my dad had an old accordion that I would try and play and pick out songs by ear as I do now,I am self taught and learned cords and to pick out a little lead,usually I can hear a song and play it but I am sure the expert players on this forum see I am not an accomplished musician ,I do gig out some and my big event is playing for our county fair they have again hired me for this year
I am not familiar with the organ you recorded on and you sent to your friend in London but I am sure it was quite neat for it's time thanks for the comments :D thanks guy
Regards :D Paula

Hi Paula Enjoyed my watch and listen. Nicely put together and performed. You would think with all that money they would learn to dance. Nearly knocked you over a couple of times. John
