  1. I read this article shortly after it was published and actually wrote a couple of comments that I added in the comments section below the article. In the one below, I was disagreeing with the writer's view that Neil's later career has been of a higher quality than Dylan, McCartney or the Stones. I took exception to that, especially with Dylan, whose work since 'Time Out of Mind' in 1997 has been outstanding. "Bob Dylan is certainly not a 'skeletal hologram' of his former self and the quality his late-career body of work for is unparalleled by anyone, far surpassing that of Mr. Young. You do capture what seems the essence of Neil, though - that he 'does' things, constantly. Consequently, it was sad to read that he is contemplating not making records anymore. Long may he run. " Overall I like Neil's stuff a lot, and like many guitarists, a lot of the first songs I learned on guitar were his. I also live pretty close to the 'town in North Ontario' he writes about in the song 'Helpless'. Also, I drive a Prius too, and love it. Not sure what the problem with that is?? (I had no idea Neil Young drove one).
  2. There are a few other early vocal performances from early Dylan, like this one, that just leave me stunned. 'Moonshiner' is one that comes to mind, and another is this one from a radio show in same time period. Just amazing.
  3. ...when he recorded this. Anyone else heard this before? Wow.
  4. In no particular order: Willie Nelson Steve Cropper Jimmy Page Django Reinhardt Ry Cooder Bruce Cockburn Johnny Marr Charley Patton Robbie Robertson George Harrison
  5. This is fantastic. You utterly made this your own. Well done, BK! Incidentally, I was through Omemee the other day - the 'town in North Ontario'...
  6. Yeah, that's a dream guitar, alright. I hope it finds a good home. Listening to 'More Blood, More Tracks' right now, Vol. 14. Bootleg Series. LOVE the mid-70s Dylan. btw Sal, the solo Dylan version of 'Tangled Up in Blue' on 'More Blood...' is much more manageable in terms of phrasing and rhythm for the solo player. Still gotta remember all the lyrics though!
  7. That's what I thought too. He plays it a lot in the rehearsals, and during the concerts.
  8. I watched Scorsese's film on Netflix last night....fascinating, to say the very least. Typical Dylan - fact and fiction flying at you hard and fast - perfect for these times we are now living in.... What guitar is Dylan playing here?
  9. Zomb - that one's got my heart racing....
  10. That's uglier than home made soap. 🤪
  11. Love that dry woody tone - VERY much to my liking, Sal!
  12. I don't know about on a dread, but I love elixir custom lights (between x light and light if memory serves) on my bk L-00, tuned down half a step. All bare fingers. This puts very little stress on the guitar, and is very comfortable to play.
  13. I'm not a guitar cleaner either. My guitar has a 'flat finish' area where my arm rests, too, lots of dusty stuff near the bridge, splotches, etc. I like it that way rather than looking pristine. But everyone is different - to each their own. ps Go Raptors!
