That was great, Mal, loved the rhythm and dynamics on this one.
Mal - February 2023 - A Simple Twist of Fate (Dylan) + Dixie Chicken (Little Feat) + Willin' To (Little Feat) + 8 Days A Week (Beatles)
Really enjoyed that Mal. And with your intro and your percussive strumming it definitely suits singer/songwriter style and doesn’t need a band. Harmonies from Lara now, that would be nice
Great Mal Great guitar playing and sinning with style, solid rythm and in tune. Great Your enthousiasm is contagious. Tank you Mal and keep on
Thanks David, I was going for a kind of shuffle beat, not sure if it arrived though.
Thanks Mari, maybe with Lara on the next one, at least we hope to do the OM after next together.
Thanks Luc, I will, as you say keep on
It certainly did, Mal, with sweet acenting using mix of clear, muted and percussive strumming.
First time commenting on here because it was Dixie Chicken. Well in mate, had me singing along to a crackin rendition of a fantastic song.
That was thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable Mal. Loved how you both sang and played it. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Alan and welcome. I take it you know the album, its a good one.
Hi Eddie, you are welcome, pleased you enjoyed the song, thank you.
Sadly I don’t know the full album, it will be on my list to seek out and listen to the full thing. I first heard the song on a generic blues compilation cd I bought back in the 90’s and I’ve loved the track ever since.
That was really great! I loved your performance and found that the strumming was perfect for this song (it also sounds like it would go great with a couple of Grateful Dead songs - Aiko, Aiko and Women are Smarter).
The version of this song that I know best is the live version from Waiting for Columbus which includes a huge band. I really enjoy the interplay between instruments on that version, but the song basically becomes a vehicle for improvisation. In your version the basics of the song really shine through. Nicely done!
Hi Alan, cannot remember the album name athe mo’ however, you are in for a treat.
Yes, I liked that.
Thanks Rob, pleased you enjoyed my version. The intro is taken from the album you mention which is a great album, by a great collection of musicians. I do enjoy both versions though, but the live performance is something else.
Thank you Scott.
Thanks Mal, all the best bud.
Mal, it was a pleasure to listen. I don’t know the song, but I like it very much. I liked the rhythm, the dynamics and the percussive aspect, and yes, I noticed the shuffle! Good job!
Hi Andrea, pleased you enjoyed my shuffle, thank you.
