First, I'd like to thank TG_Strat for pointing me in the direction of this jam. Also, thanks to Gary for his encouragement.

Keith Emerson is definitely a major influence for me. I listened to a lot of ELP growing up, and the band's rendition of "Pictures at an Exhibition" made a big impact. I am very thankful to have a track like this to pay homage to one of my musical heroes.

Technical stuff: To match the Lucky Man sound, take a few square waves and detune them slightly. Get one of the LFO's modulating pitch to further enhance the oscillating, ringing effect. Small amount of resonance at the filter cutoff and away you go. While playing, it was necessary to keep a hand free to adjust glide time (glissando rate) and the fine tuning depending on how high or low I was playing. It was fun to learn about how Emerson made this sound.

EspTrojanEspTrojan My mistake, I meant to say 'Emerson, Lake and Palmer', not the 'Who',..age and my memory don't get along to well these days.

Thank you! I've listened to a lot of ELP over the years, so this is my pale attempt to travel on the road that Emerson paved.

Thanks so much for taking the time to listen!

garymcmillgarymcmill Enjoyed this immensely, so much that I wish you would have made it longer. Great job on extending it though.
Being an old fart I agree with Furlano 100%.
