    Can anyone (except XavierG) think about putting an organ solo into one of their tunes without at least smiling. Think of the trouble it would cause if you made a music video for a song with an organ solo in it. BTW althought I may be a sad, innuendo loving 16 year old (There's no may be about it:)) I cannot be the only one who laughs when they think of XG putting an organ solo into one of his tunes... Sorry if, for some reason, this is lost on some of you.
     
  2. I guess the only reason you lost me, from the start, is what is wrong with an organ solo.

    does it matter what make? is a Hammond more funny than, say, a Farfisa or Vox?

    Aye, gruff. Also, Jim Morrisson can think about putting an organ solo into one of his tunes without at least smiling.

    Rhymes With Puck smiled when we put an organ solo into one of our songs, but that was more related to the math teacher (who is a naturally hilarious person, and not in the "Oh, I'm really stupid and I'm gonna make lame jokes all the time!" way, either) we got to play it for us than the concept of an organ solo.

    If you think that there's some sort of essential problem with an organ solo, you need to start thinking "out of the box".

    I don't get it. At all. What are you saying?
     
  6. I know Jon Lord from Deep Purple, Keith Emerson from ELP and Rick Wakeman for YES don't make me giggle.

    You've got to be kidding! You really don't know who XavierG is?

    He is a famous Canadian bassist. He sometimes posts on TB. :) He is a serious nice guy also.

    NONONONO!!!

    Think about the words organ solo as if you were a pervy 16 year old. Y'know, going solo with your organ... Sorry about such a confusing thread, I thought the meaning was pretty obvious...
