Win7? Really, man? Jens, you have to be the only one top professional musician, who doesn´t use Apple! No, it doesn´t really matter, you´re still my hero. For two years, when i have been the owner of iPad2, i really don´t need anything else in the gigs, but the keyboard controller and iPad.

Re: (Drum roll) and the new drummer is...

Totally agree, peace warrior. But the storm on the waterglass began, cause Elysium is dropped c# and they play live nowadays also in c#. I am sure that reason is heavier sound, not TK's voice. But this is thread about Rolf, so i must say that Rolf used before to play with bands whose plays very low ...

Yeah, AAA (can't remember how many...) this went totally offtopic, Rolf is great man to sit on that chair behind the drums. But... Let me continue that i ment it is not the ONLY reason for lower tune. Eb tune is Tolkki's thing, traced from Yngwie, i guess. C# tune fits much better for Matias style. ...

Re: (Drum roll) and the new drummer is...

@Elz TK's voice isn't reason for lower tune. Matias has said in finnish magazine that drop C# is heavier sounding than Es tuned. And using drop C# tuning you haven't to use 7 strings guitar. For example original Black Diamond goes in d-minor key, which plays actually in C#-minor key. So, with droppe...

Re: Best Jens Keyboard Solo? Post your opinion!

Very difficult to vote only one solo. But i say: King Of Nothing. That solo takes whole song totally higher level after that fine scale in the beginning of solo. I like very much Jens' style to alternate between legato and nonlegato inside phrases. And also alternate between melodic and fast ornamen...
