Wait for it…
It’s there I promise!
(if you don’t enjoy this you’re dead to me)
He didn’t use the bigsby! The guy can play. Thats for sure. But he could also play a tin can with a wire attached to a broom handle and sound better than me. There must have been some sort if deal he made where he had to play every note on every fret. I dont think he misused any. I still have places on my necks that have zero fret ware.
imho, he over-played what is supposed to be a sparsely played beautiful song.
I agree but dang he overplayed well!
One of the most beautiful songs ever written. What an exhilarating piece of music. Everytime I hear that song it gives me goosebumps.
Here is my favorite version from Jeff Beck featuring Rod Stewart:
Eh, reminds me of alot of instruction vids, the 1st 5 minutes are some guy shredding like it's a Berklee audition.
Curtis Mayfield does that so well that it will always be my favorite version. That said, I liked Joe Robinson's version, although I agree that the solos got a little over played. I also would have put away the Strat in favor of the Gretsch's tone. With the Gretsch, the solo wasn't so "in your face," so it fit better with the acoustic guitar and the more mellow vocals. Just my 2 cents.
I think of this as a YouTube performance which is a different animal than an album cut or a live performance.
There’s a certain amount of firepower necessary to stand out.
I totally agree tho…Joe overplays for the song.
Also, the Gretsch does sound better for this song.
I think this young man’s touch and phrasing are pretty amazing. There’s a lot more going on dynamically than most players ever achieve.
Paid by the note? Piecework?
Fast and furious, and he's highly talented. He blurred. Still, less is more.
Yeah he kind of drifts back and forth between REALLY tasty phrasing and dangerously close to random noodling.
Never heard of him before. I thought he was great. Period.
I am sorry, but this is Fantastic, I love it, and I think Curtis Mayfield would have loved it too. This is one of the best written songs ever, I think that is why it was covered so often, and had so many interpretations/covers.
