I don't exactly know where this thread should be posted but this appears to be the most logical place.

In the song, Life's been good to me so far, by Joe Walsh, it has this popping sound (for lack of a better term), in between the verses. Is that a synch or a keyboard making that sound? Thanks

It's a Hammond organ.

Thanks, Geno. I didn't know that a Hammond could make those sounds.

It's a calliope effect in the tune. Walsh usually played keys on his stuff; he also spend a lot of time on keys when he was in the Eagles.

It is probably a B-3 which as "percussion". Percussion is not a drum but an effect on many organs.

Here's a great demo of the perc sounds of the Hammond.

Hear that "clack" sound at the initial attack of the notes?

I don't play organ, but that was cool!
