One King - SLight Difference?

Post by Guest » Tue Dec 21, 2004 5:24 am

Right, here's one for you musical types...

Am I nuts (wait, there's more!) or is there a "difference" between the section of One King from 5.16 to 5.30 on Lex Rex and its counterpart on Live@NEARFest? It's the small section immediatedly after the fusion-y Rhodes(?) type keyboard bit that begins with a pair of 4-notes descending.

I find that it doesn't seem just as fluid live as on album. Admittedly its just a minor thing but I am curious if anyone can

a) hear what I'm talking about, and

b) know how to describe it without my furious handwaving :D

OK, all musicians reading this can now stop bloody laughing :evil: :P

yeah ted, you gotta realize in the studio they had the ability to record more than one keyboard part, and do it over and over until perfect. In a live setting, certian things have to be changed for the sake of 1. complexity, available equiptment, having only one fred and 2 fred hands lol...

I think I know what I'm getting at now. Brian's right that the counterpointing clavichord (I knew that! :P ) isn't there or as prominent live but I think primarily its the drums. In the studio the drum parts are moe understated and (dare I say it) a touch more elaborate. Live, the drums are more "go-ahead" and the beat sort of dominates the piece, which means it doesn't flow just as smoothly.

But whadda I know anyway :P

Tell you what though, Chronotheme live is smokin'!! If I'd never heard GH and was sitting there and the first thing they played was Chronotheme I'd be grinning like the Cheshire Cat! In fact, my smile would be so broad that the top of my head would probably fall off :D

Chronotheme is GH's very own "Firebird Suite"!

If it's the part I think it is - Matt never quiet locked into the rythym of the studio version during rehearsels, so we changed it up a bit. There are other changes in 1 King which we thought made improvements to the song.
