  1. I like it, Lars!! I agrees with what’s already been said—and I like “first takes” quite a bit. As here, I find they often capture the delicate intimacy of the birthing of a song. Sure, there will be rewrites and performance-related choices to follow, but...there’s nothing like the early take, when the song quickens in your hands and you know it’s its own being now. As for the “Please, please, oh please” bit, I like it, but may I suggest (and reiterating the “less-is-more” point re words/syllables) you follow with something like “...don’t let me be too late,” which would be enhanced, too, by the “countdown” that David reminded you about? Fun to share the journey, Lars.
  2. Not long ago, I had a dream I came to your house. (Probably after Dan posted those great pics.) Maybe a bunch of us should come over, help you hold down the fort? 😕
  3. Seven short years later, she found her serious groove...
  4. In a grand co-writing experiment (which is more fun than the law allows) with the guy that recorded and produced my CD project a couple of years ago. Going thru our toolboxes at our first working session, we shared odds and ends we both had laying around. On my way home, one of his lines rattled around in my head, and by the time I made it home, a verse had been born: “I wrote a blank check for your love when your eyes first met mine They say you can’t buy happiness but I could go broke tryin’” We met a couple of times since and eased out most of the rest—we’re 95% there, I think. As I said, it’s a fine experiment, so we plan to continue. And that’s what I’m doing these days.🤓
  5. I remember!! You’re sounding great there, Buc. The song’s standing up well, too. 😉
  6. Like gearbasher, I also had a lovely Guild of that era (a D-50 from 79-81, I don’t remember exactly which year). It was a heavy sucker, but it was rosewood, after all. It was a great sounding box, and I only parted with it because I had a chance to get my J-100 maple, which I still have and love. When I bought the NOS Guild, I was sure I’d be bringing a D-28 home with me, but it was no contest, once I A/B’ed the Guild against two or three D-28s in the store that day. Go fig. Point is, if you want a 1980 git, you won’t go wrong with a Guild, imo.
  7. Love the song, Dan, and am thoroughly enjoying these snippets from your Tour. Sal and JT? ! Aren’t you the lucky ones! 😉
  8. 8 years and many lifetimes ago, when I was bravely throwing out new songs at my then-favorite open mic where the house band was always game. Good times...
  9. Me, too! Thanks for the good word.
  10. “A Song for You,” on my J100xtra. “Take me down to your dance floor...”
  11. Without researching, looks like an early ‘60s LG-1 (ladder braced, plastic bridge). I had a ‘64 nearly all my life, but recently sold it.
  12. Didn’t care for this at all. A humorous-less mocumentary whose only redeeming value is some of the unstaged outtakes from Dylan’s own project archive (Joni Mitchell, Allen Ginsberg). All the staged stuff (e.g., where he and Joan B “reminisce” for a few moments about their relationships) is crap and rings hollow. Sure, anyone who needs to see yet more video of yet more bootleg material will have something to enjoy. I get that he’s a genius, musically and lyrically. I’m 100% on board there. But, sorry, if he and/or Scorsese think it’s meaningful (or even vaguely interesting) to fake-explore Dylan’s iconic cultural persona, I got nothing but a giant eye-roll for the endeavor. (Next, I’ll tell you how I really feel. 🤓)
  13. Yes, quite nice...but I prefer still the drive of the Boys’ arrangement. There’s a gravitas that a cappella arrangements never quite achieve, imo. This is tops, for sure, but I like my nostalgia dark (and don’t take my coffee with sugar, either). But then, I’m a Pole from Chicago, so what do I know? 😅
  14. My favorite Danny Boy arrangement ever. These guys are both from Belfast but met each other here in North Carolina. This, this is how it’s done...
