Romeo1959 -

An EXCEPTIONAL effort which must have taken a long time to do . . .

As a long-time fan of the man and having been lucky enough to have sung (English Chamber Choir) on three of his albums - his keyboard skills are far from basic and extremely difficult to emulate . .

If memory serves - this section is from the YesSongs Triple Album - performed live and introduced by Jon Anderson . . . . "Mr Rick Wakeman . . . . . . . . keyboards . . . . ."

Your voicings seem well chosen - I have no knowledge of the Tyros Series myself, but the scope available seems to reflect the esteem in which they are held . .

The mini-moog model D (Rick routinely used four of these on stage) created that legendary sound for which it is famous . . .
It is also famous for its instability with respect to temperature (ON - time) and difficulty (read - unsuitability) for voice changes in a live situation, - hence Rick used four, preset to the sounds he needed.

The portamento timing in this YesSongs segment must have been a nightmare to set up BEFORE the gig, and have it perform correctly, on cue . . .

So, all-in-all . . . Respect! A great effort.

Romeo,

I take my hat off to you and I listened with great envy.

Rick is one of my musical heroes and I have had the pleasure to meet him after a gig.

Outstanding and unique skills, which I think you have managed to capture here.

Well done,
