As much as I love the Rhodes, and as much as I intended on getting lessons, I still haven't found any real opportunities to properly learn how to play it. I've used it on multiple recordings, but it's never played a prominent role. Two tines were broken on it when I bought it, so it wasn't fully functional in the first place. I like to play it, and will gladly play it with people, but my skills are limited.
I finally repaired the Rhodes' broken tines a couple summers ago and recorded this video (below) to test them out. I hadn't tuned them perfectly, so when I hit the note it sounds a little off, but it was nice to try to play the full range of the thing, even though I'm a terrible pianist if I'm a keyboard player at all. Despite all of that, it is by far my most-watched video on YouTube. Considering the fact that most of the people finding the video would be used to Warren Zevon's piano skills, I still seem to have a sort-of positive effect.
