Online PR News – 10-May-2012 – Corona/CA – Quinton Hufferd, professional piano player and creator of the blues piano lesson product Blues Piano Revealed, has released a new post on his blog featuring the keyboard player for the 1970s rock band, Deep Purple. Hufferd claims that Lord helped revolutionize the keyboard and Hammond organ in 1970s rock music by adding effects to his organ never attempted before. Lord was known to create an overdriven organ sound that could rival the loud guitars on stage with Deep Purple, Hufferd claims. Hufferd also points out that Lord uses much of his classical training in creating solos that have stood the test of time in music history.

“The role of keyboard instruments changed dramatically in 1970s rock music with synthesizers and effects,” Hufferd says.
“While many of the British rock keyboard players, like Keith Emmerson of Emmerson, Lake and Palmer and Rick Wakeman of the band Yes, utilized analog synthesizers like the Moog,” Hufferd says, “Jon Lord of the band Deep Purple preferred the raw power of the Hammond organ.”
“Lord used a Hammond C3 organ through a Leslie speaker,” According to Hufferd, “Then was known to reach overdrive effects by amplifying the organ through Marshall speakers.”
