Squeeze used a Farfisa in their song "Farfisa Beat" which I liked. I also liked it's use in "Crocodile Rock". Because its sound is so thin, like all transistor organs, it can be a bit much to bear unless it's being layered with other sounds. Nothing beats that big crunch 'n roll of a Hammond, though. John Paul Jones, Jimmy Reed, Jon Lord, Keith Emerson and half the churches in America can testify to that!

Have you ever handled a rifle?

coming from a family of gun lovers, I have to admit yes, I have, albeit somewhat inexpertly/clumsily. also in the army they made me shoot a variety of weapons.

same question.

No. I don't think I've ever seen one IRL.

Have you ever made your own fruit jam (strawberries, apricots, orange etc)?

I like the soprano because that's what Branford Marsalis played in Sting's band.

I also like the alto as played by Ben in the band I was in, MOON.


Are you fan of the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm?

sorry, I am not very cultured and have not even read any such material, though I do know who they are, sorta. :oops: I also like the alto sax as long as it is in the estimable hands of somebody like the late great paul desmond, the greatest alto horn man who ever lived IMHO.

which is your fave clarinet-
sopranino
Eb soprano
Bb standard
Eb alto
Bb Bass
Eb contralto
BBb contrabass
EEb octo-contralto
BBBb octo-contrabass
