Softer than this world


Recommended Posts

Been enjoying this dark tune since Steppenwolf 7, always knew it was written by Hoyt Axton, but never met his own slightly countryish version before yesterday.

Q. : How does he get that almost unreal soft acoustic sound, especially heard in the strumming between verses. Could it be a Gibson with adj. wooden saddle, or can some of you set me on the right track ?

Yeah yeah it's fingers for sure - just thought there was an extra soft-factor to it.


vily, , , if you like The Pusher, I have to you bring you this version. Only a few years old, but they take to the sky.


Original Steppenwolf = The band that bridged Angels and hippies.


John Kay = The man who mixed macho with cool.
