Instrument Comfort

Ask Katy

In 1987, I was lucky enough to travel cross country and have front row seats for the two nights in the LA Forum. Though I was on Warren's side of the stage, I remember that during "Election Day," John played the bass line on a keyboard. I also seem to recall him looking off stage, laughing as to say, "Look, one finger!" I thought it came off well, but after some 20 years, is it easier and are you more confident playing an instrument other than bass or guitar on stage? RK

"Funny that you picked up on that, Re: "Election Day"...I'm had a lot of fun with the electroset, let's put it that way. Although I prefer the freedom of movement having a bass strapped around my neck, I dig the sound variety I get out of the Korg I used. JT"
