Today after church we orchestra players got into a lil discussion/test about
naming a musician after hearing only one note played by that person.
Keep in mind the test was about:
AFTER HEARING ONLY ONE NOTE PLAYED!!!
(And no. Voxes are not part of the discussion).
I could only come up with two musicians that fit that criteria.
Duane Eddy with that Fender ‘Tremolo’ ‘rear pick-up’ sound
Miles Davis with that modified Harmon mute sound.
In each case only one note is needed to recognize who is playing.
Of course both have since been mucho imitated but these two were the first (of which I have knowledge)
with those distinctive sounds.
So help me out guys.
I would love to have some additional ammo, (I mean info/names. ha!) for next Sunday’s discussion.
TIA (thanks in advance)
