Happy 'Cause I'm Goin' Home

Progress? was originally performed by Chicago with a horn section. I did it on a piano. To avoid cloning Chicago's style and sound, horn parts in some songs were replaced with synthesizers. The drums in Man Vs. Man: The End were done in layers of various jazz performances. While it may not match the original it sounds better than my computerized  attempt at trying to re-create the original drums.
Lowdown

Mother

Played on a Hammond B3 and slowed down. More bluesy.
An Hour In the Shower Medley

While most of these pieces were transcribed from commercial sheet music, there were some that I had to figure out on my own. For example, nearly everything from Volume III was from a "Sketch Book," a very basic piano and vocal transcription. This left me having to figure out all the other parts by ear. Still others, such as I'm A Man and South California Purples had to be built from scratch, totally by ear.
