My favorite Neil Young song.
I only know this song from the beat farmers. Now i know the original.
I get the tingles every time he comes in with the last verse “Shelter me from the powder and the finger...”.
Love me some Neil Young.
One of my favorites! Thanks for posting!
A great example of the Crazy Horse sound that I like.
I LOVE playing a bunch of Neil Young songs ( maybe 25+?) at home just for practice and kicks( curiosity to learn), and this one is in the ' daily mix' just love his simple but strong chord progressions!! ( and they all work on acoustic or electric)
I know Neil is a ' love or hate' guy, but I think he is a songwriting and guitar master.
Our band needs to revisit " Powderfinger" as we have done it in the past with our harmonica player singing
and we did a good job- just forgot about it....
Will text band now, to prep it for gig next week! THANKS!
Edit: Band texted, "Powderfinger" next gig, next week!
It's just another genius Neil Young song.
I tried it in E because I don't have Neil's vocal range but nope...it only sounds good in G to my ears.
The 'turnaround' lick requires the song to be in G with standard tuning to play right.
i love the sound of the opening g chord.i play along with the weld version.
Really great song, and the solos epitomize NY's idiosyncratic lead playing.
