The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Favorite Rhodes solo
« on: May 14, 2013, 03:37:46 PM »
Not sure if this has been done on here yet, but I thought it might be interesting to hear some of your favorite Rhodes or Wurly solos.  Maybe share a youtube link so we can start a collection here.  A few of mine to start.

George Duke  Au-Right

Deodato - Also Sprach Zarathustra

Matt Cooper's Rhodes solo with Redtenbacher's Funkestra

I've found a guy in my area selling his rhodes. He's not sure of the exact date, but its got the Fender Rhodes logo so I would imagine its and earlier one. I've tried to do my homework on these things to narrow down what I want. I definitely want a Mark 1 and I do like the tone of the earlier ones, however I know that finding a "good" one is hit or miss. I've heard people say that sometimes there's nothing you can do to make some of them sound good. This is a bit confusing to me as I haven't played enough to know. Is it something that jumps out at you? Or is it something that you find out the hard way?  apparently he's the second owner and was good friends with the original owner. He says its been stored in a dry place but hasn't been played (aside from testing it out to sell it) in 6 years. I guess he's a guitar player who wanted to learn the keys, but never really did much with it.  He's asking $800 for it but he said he's willing to take a fair offer. Can you guys please give me a few pointers on what exactly to look for and or listen for. I can't afford to make a bad investment and my dreams of owning a rhodes would of course be shattered if I bought a lemon.

Thanks in advance guys
