The Weight | Playing For Change | Song Around The World

Cool

We’re excited to share our newest Song Around The World, “The Weight,” featuring musicians performing together across 5 continents. Great songs can travel everywhere bridging what divides us and inspiring us to see how easily we all get along when the music plays. Special thanks to our partner Cambria® for helping to make this possible and to Robbie Robertson, Ringo Starr and all the musicians for joining us in celebrating 50 years of this classic song.

Thanks Rabs!!! The Weight is one of my all time favorite songs, thanks for sharing that version!! 

 

Like Big Bill I have also liked to play along with 'The Weight' ever since I first learned it so when I clicked on the link I also picked up my recently acquired Washburn R315K Parlour guitar to "play-along-a" the track. So far so good. Then, at the 02:04 mark, what do I see but John Cruz playing his Washburn R314K Parlour guitar!......Spooky!

Nice version! I particularly liked the sitar bit!

Thanks for posting!

Pip.

That is spooky!!!

I never play guitar along with it. But I long to sing along, especially after a couple of beers.
