Welcome readers! This month I wanted to talk about playing guitar-like solos on keyboard. One of the early pioneers of this style of playing was Prague’s own, Jan Hammer. Hammer was performing all throughout Europe at an early age and studied music and classical composition at Prague Academy of Musical Arts. In the early 1970s, he joined the original lineup of the Mahavishnu Orchestra where he was one of the first artists to play the Mini Moog synthesizer in a touring group. Hammer along with Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and a few others literally wrote the book on analog keyboard solos. Many of these solos had a lot of characteristics in common with guitar solos. The mod wheels, portamento, and LFO were frequently used to mimic the bends and vibrato of guitarists. The solo sounds were also generally monophonic which had a more immediate sound and led to interesting techniques where notes could be held as others were played to create hammer-on effects. I’ve come up with a few examples below to help you get the feel.
