Jack Bruce "Theme for an Imaginary Western"


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

I've been playing 'Theme' as an instrumental at nearly every solo gig for many years. The looper has my rhythm guitar track and I solo the melody live.


I've played it at weddings, bars, festivals, acoustic, electric, every possible way and it always works. Truly an all-time classic.


I'd love to hear that. It is a classic. I love Mountain. I love Jack Bruce. I'm often surprised at how many of my fellow musicians, around my same age don't even know the song. Mountain should be mandatory listening, for anyone learning guitar. IMHO.

As well as Jack wrote it, Felix sang it. I know it wasn't so, but I always felt that Jack wrote it for Felix to sing. When I saw Mountain, they played it so well that evening. Now all gone. RIP you two.
