Page dedicated to Doors Tutorials

Recommended Posts

Dear forumers,

hoping that you can enjoy it I post here the link to my new page dedicate to Doors and Ray Manzarek: Doors Keyboard Tutorials.

 

Tutorials that should unveil all the secrets of Ray's music and take away all the possible doubts about how to play the passages. We transcribed the music note by note, in a philological and sometimes, effectively, almost maniacal way. We used a panoramic camera to show very clearly the finger movements on the keys and add the scores, as the most of piano players are coming from classical studies. You'll find all these elements in one single screen and we tell also the story of the song.

 

Here the link to my first three Tutorials:

 

Roadhouse blues

 

Break on through #2

 

Take it as it comes

 

Look forward for your comments!

Very cool to hit it with the notation, live video footage of play, and the commentary. If you can't piece it together from this... time to sell your rig. ;)

 

I hope you have income from ads turned on. Just too much time invested on your end to be entirely benevolent. Maybe a few freebies and then earn something. YMMV

Thank you all for the nice comments! There is much more to come and if you like it stay tuned! I am not doing any business with that, but yes, there is a lot of work inside. The passion...:-)

Nice work man, that's how to do a tutorial! I was playing in a Doors tribute a couple of years back, this would've have been perfect!

Remember - you can make a record without an organ on it, but it won't be as good

I just watched the first one. Amazing! I enjoy the Doors but never get to play them. Was actually just working on Light My Fire the other day. Managed to coax a fairly authentic tone out of an M3 with the Leslie on stop!

Thanks Wes, I was also using an Hammond emulator with the Leslie on stop on my nord electro 2, until I upgraded to the 4 in order to have the VOX It is a weird feeling to use the Hammond to play Doors because in some way the Hammond has for me simply a better sound than the Combo organs used by Ray Manzarek ;-), but the VOX is simply the real thing!

Ps: of course I have light my fire in my list, with the entire solo, if it can be of help just let me know!

Excellent tutorials Claudio. BTW as a software only player live, I get a pretty authentic VOX tone out of Logic's Vintage B3.

Interesting. I used the "grand organ" on logic for the tutorials, but never engaged myself to find the VOX emulator to use live. Did you created it yourself ?

Hi Claudio,

 

Yes I created it. In MainStage 2 I used Martinic's last free iteration of the Vox and Farfisa organs. They were bought by Arturia. Using the final 64 bit versions in MS 3 I tweaked Vintage B3 to create presets that are almost identical.

 

Other B3 emulations, both hardware and software, like VB3, offer modelled transistor organ presets and I suspect that is how they are created also.
