    Did an open mic on Friday night with some friends and we did this song, but I love your interpretation of it, with the guitar solo instead of the organ. Gives it a whole different feel. :cool:

    have you ever noticed that with a few inversions HOTRS is almost the same as stairway?
    different picking pattern though.

    The laughter at the beginning is kind of disturbing. Goes with the feel of the song though.

    Thanks I wished we had the organ player with us that night at the gig. It would have filled it out and added nicely.

    Not until you mentioned it but now I do see the similarity. Thanks.

    The laughing was disturbing. I'm sorry you didn't like my fabulous video Rodeo Clown (I mean Tex).

    To the talented and all around fun guy known as Rodeo, here's a poem I wrote for you.

    Wipe that smile off your face because Rodeo Clown just posted, in TDPRI town
    To put us all down and make us frown.
    He ain't posted no video's of himself with sound
    So there's nothing left for him to do, but throw rocks around.

    Didn't have the album.... but I sure had the 45rpm.
    Frijid Pink! Yessir. There's more than one way to skin that cat!

    Was no harm or insult meant. Sorry if you took it that way.

    Thanks for your comment. I had never heard the Frijid Pink version so I checked it out on youtube and enjoyed it. I liked the singer. The singer didn't even have to reach for the notes, his voice was so relaxed. Wish I could have said the same about myself.

    Didn't mean to be cryptic- thought maybe you were already familiar with the FP version. I really like what FP did with it, - and same goes for yours. Thought your version perhaps was a nod to the other.
    There's just so many people who wanna give it the Dave van Ronk/Dylan /Animals treatment, and especially in acoustic jams.
    It was a running joke with a buddy of mine, -'cuz he swore he hated it- we'd always try to get somebody to request it...

    Anyhow, thanks for posting it- I enjoyed it!
    (And the laughter was very reminiscent of some crazy background crowd conversations my old garage band used to capture when we'd record a gig. Sometimes it can be a priceless addition. We once did a version of Hot Rod Lincoln at an outdoor party, and the recording caught a neighborhood siren. Pretty funny how it fit in.)
