Still crazy......

Recommended Posts

Happy 2020 all!  Hope all is well in your worlds!

Been off with other things of late......haven't even been playing lately.  But yesterday I managed to find at the guitar in the closet and thought I'd give dropped D a try..........  Down a half step in drop D, capo at 2 for vocal accommodation.........

Outstanding, Buc!

Love the look of that J-45. It's very similar to the dark overall top on the 1950 J-45 I bought last year.

Is that your own arrangement, or did you find it somewhere?

I was afraid for a minute you were going to sing it in Stevie Winwood's  range, which I can't possibly achieve, and never could. This is pretty comfortable.

Thanks, fellas.

Nick:  stole this from a Winwood solo acoustic version I found on the web.  I drop an extra note in a couple of the chords that make it sound a bit different but it's quite similar.  And I agree, his vocal register for that one is clean outta sight.

Yeah, I assume it's that video where he's playing the 000-42 by the crackling fire. That guy has a set of pipes, still.

And yours ain't bad..., still.

Winwood is often seriously underrated as a guitarist as well.

Buc, outstanding as usual. Is all the reverb I hear on both guitar and voice just from the acoustics of the room you’re in?

Sounds really good!  Always liked that song.  
 

A question, though.  Seeing the video made me wonder what happened to your blue guitar.  (The blue color Hummingbird).  Still have it?

Bit of reverb added to the track........just seems to sweeten everything nicely.

Still have the blue Hummingbird and do intend to rescue it from its' case in the corner soon.......promise.

Thanks for the love!
