Long time no see, Mr. Ward! How the hell have you been? :wave:

 

Long story, but doing very well at the moment! Glad to be back. I've missed the ol' forum! Ooh, and I think I have something that'll be ready for comp 13 if the free form frenzy isn't full.

 

Hmmm. Do we need a separate Keytar forum? Somewhere for the "cool" people to hang?

 

Yes.

After watching that I think I may have to stop using my SH-101 w mod grip. I feel very queasy. (I'm sure there must be a smiley for that)
I like to move it, move it (except The Wurly which can be a bit temperamental and the 122 for obvious reasons)

I did a gig with Burt Ward once. We were the first band in a new club, and did a 2 week stint with Burt as the MC. We would bring him out on stage a couple times a night playing the Batman theme but chanting "Burt Ward" instead of "Bat - man". It must have been hell for him after awhile LOL.

Burt Ward - Actor

Dick Grayson - Character

 

 

Hey Force, Gas, Tony, Bowsa, and everyone I haven't seen in a while, lol. Don't worry, I've got a whole load of new questions. Most which have an answer of 'take some lessons, idiot'. Should be fun!

Well, I play wired but there's plenty of wireless MIDI adapters. Like The MidAir

 

Here's my question.. Why a wireless keyboard that needs to sit on a frigging stand anyway, and why not a keytar with a decent keybed? Jerks!

Well, it's been a while and nobody asked it yet, so here it goes...

 

Hey Dick, how's the POWER SINGLE business going?

Anybody ever notice that R&B guys always look cooler with keytars than rock guys? I mean, Jimmy Jam actually looked hip in those old Janet Jackson videos. Maybe it's because they don't look as much like they're trying to be guitarists....I don't know.

 

Errr....Rock on Justin.

1) Jimmy Jam is one bad-ass mofo, no matter what he's doing...

 

2) Doing anything within 100' of Janet Jackson instantly makes you look that much better...

 

3) Most "rock guys" tend to make those goofy faces that we used to make playing air guitar in front of the mirror at age 12...

 

4) R&B guys aren't trying to 'shred' on their keytars, they're usually doing chord solos, big brass stab sorts of things, and are using a keytar to be able to join in the choreographed moves that the rest of the band is doing (with the exception of the drummer, of course)... so there's less "look at me, I'm just like a guitarist" vibe and more "check out these dance steps, baby!" ;)

 

5) Speaking in grand generalizations like "R&B guys" and "rock guys" is usually a pretty silly thing to do... ;)

 

Ahem.

Hey, Dick! Long time, no see. I haven't been around the forum at all in the past couple of months, either.

 

I personally have nothing against keytars. I guess I'm just a bit too young to remember them the first time, or for them to make an impression on me, good or bad. The cheesiness of the video you posted has little to do with the keytar itself, and everything to do with Justin.
