Been trying to learn this tune but it is very difficult. There are some (a lot) mistakes here but I couldn’t perfom it as cleanly as I wanted. There are some parts that need preicison practice.
Sounding good Anton. Not the hack job you made it out to be. Very enjoyable.
Thank you! I think its just part of my country’s culture: that you should not to praise yourself too much. But yeah I am actually pleased by how well I can play it even though there are mistakes.
I liked that Anton @maelaevi
A snappy little tune.
You finger pick real well man! I don’t know that song so wouldn’t know a mistake from 'played like you want it". But it sounds like you’ve learned that song to me. It also sounds difficult to me.
Only thing I can offer, and you know what it is.
Practice makes perfect… I image you’ll have it just like ya want it in no time.
Thanks for sharing. Fun song!
Never heard this Ribot tune. I really like it. I have 2 cd’s both electric. He has such a distinct and vibrant style.
Keep at it you did a fine job. Reminded me of Mood for a Day by Steve Howe just because I learned that by rote decades ago and it took me forever to get it sounding ok. Tried The Clap too but that was too difficult.
It’s not his tune originally but from a composer called Frantz Casseus, who was also Marc Ribots guitar teacher. I heard Marc play it live and it sounded similar to this: https://youtu.be/DkJM0kHf2J4?t=1370
I used that video and a recording from the album to figure out the song: Marc Ribot Plays Solo Guitar Works of Frantz Casseus - Album by Frantz Casseus | Spotify
Never heard the tune before, or the artist…
but you did a very fine job with it. Sounded delicious.
Very well done!!
nice vid. I like the staccato approach. Just found Fat Man Blues live at NY accoustic tune - really great. Thanks for opening the door of Ribot wider for me.
Anton, I really enjoyed your performance of Congo. The song is a beautiful piece with two complicated parts played at the same time in the upper and lower strings. I thought that your playing was amazing and I wasn’t able to hear the mistakes. Thanks for the links to the songs and video of Frantz Cassius who I had never heard of. I had also not heard Marc Ribot play (who sounds like one of those virtuosos who can play anything on guitar) so this opens a new world to me . Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Steve! Its fun to find new music to listen to.
Extremely impressive playing Anton! Very enjoyable to listen to.
