​Many of my blues events include a sprinkling across R&B, soul, and motown.
​Some of those tunes are sweet arrangements with MEL9 string pads.

Remember the rising "ah" chorus at the end of Rolling Stones' CAN'T ALWAYS
GET WHAT YOU WANT? MEL9 "low choir" does that really well!

Because of my varied harp sounds (Hammond B3, Strings, etc) I am working a
fill-in tonight for a vacationing keyboard player in a 5 pc variety band.
