Favorite synth passage.

Post by white-haired uncle » Sat Feb 05, 2005 1:12 pm


I was always a big fan of the synth parts ged would play in a song,
i love when he is playing bass and starts heading towords his keyboard setup to play a passage__ it's like a "major event" happening, which changes what neil and alex are playing, and then back to the bass as his famous one footed hop carries him away from his keyboards. I have noticed when geddy started out he had two synths and a set of taurus pedals, and over the years his setup evolved and became larger to four synths. "Now, with the advancement of digital "technology" and "sampling" it seems to me geddy has gone full circle, for the last seven years or so of touring his setup consists of two keyboards and two sets of pedals, just how he started out. I personally like analog much better then digital, you just can not sample those Taurus bass pedals________ Analog Rules!! 8)

Top three favorite syth parts.

1) The trees
2) The camera eye (the begining)
3)Jacob's ladder

white-haired uncle surprized you didn't say: "Red Barcheta"
That just kicks ass from front to back.
When evil is allowed to compete with good, evil has an emotional populist appeal that wins out unless good men & women stand as a vanguard against abuse.
