Keyboard Soloing Ideas from Jeff Lorber – KeyboardMag

When I was playing the club circuit in Boston and New England in 1972, I thought I had a pretty great keyboard rig: a Rhodes Stage electric piano, a Fender Twin Reverb amp, and a wah pedal. Then I stopped by Bunratty’s Bar and saw a band that had a brand new Minimoog. It was love at first sight, and I had to get my hands on one. I was mesmerized by how it lets a keyboard player bend notes and be expressive the way a guitarist or horn player can be. I’ve been a big Minimoog proponent ever since. Here are some tips for building your own expressive jazz-rock synth solos.

It is interesting to note that the Graphic Keyboard doesn’t have a default key command assigned to it. You can easily get to it by opening the ‘Musical Typing Keyboard’ (⌘K) and clicking on the piano keys button. Maybe it’s a subtle way to get you to use Musical Typing which is pretty handy for quick playing, etc.

You can play your chosen software instrument using musical typing or the onscreen keyboard. You can also use a music keyboard.


If your computer has a Touch Bar, you can play the software instrument on the selected software instrument track using the Keyboard screen and play drum kits and percussion instruments on the selected Drummer track using the Drum Pads screen.
