Back in the day, you'd pack the stage with stars and guitars.
Been listening to that song a lot this week..
Really hits home to me.
I've always wanted to learn that song and feel confident that I could do a passable job on it (providing you were on the edge of drunken consciousness). However I could never in a million years be able to remember the words.
What a wonderful song!
I listen to that - loud, at least once a week.
The lyrics are flat over the top. My fav verse (sung by George of course):
I found this just now, check out the Lightshow Rickenbacker and Marty picking the solo
That's actually a pretty nice version.
This is from the only non-Tommy Ramones album that I actually like. If you don't like the Ramones, you won't like it...and it isn't the best song on the album by any means...but here it is anyhow:
Yeah, that's a problem with a lot of Dylan songs... I know the chords to Mr. Tambourine but darn if I can remember all the words... take me on a trip upon your magic <something> ship... I have spent my fare share of time on my back pages as well, I know some of the words I'm sure with enough dedication it can be learnt.
A favorite of mine too. Been playing it since I first heard the Byrds version way back when.
I'm partial to Marshall Crenshaw's version though.
It's on my set list but I only do four verses. I think I stole that from the Byrds.
One of Bob's more poetic ones
Eric Johnson does a nice version on 'Bloom'.
I really like the OP video. Most of the performers seem to be really enjoying themselves. Watch Tom Petty and Neil Young in particular, they seem to be having a blast.
A lot of Dylan's songs are like that; you have to just pick the 3 or 4 verses that really resonate with you.
Of course many of his songs should only be done whole or not at all~
Well, that struck a chord in me and brought both a smile and a tear! Thanks!
Mono single master
Thanks I love that song!
That was definitely the high point of the show.
That in addition to Neil Young's manic stomping version of Watchtower.
All the clips are taken down except this 40 second snippet.
We do the four verse version (The Byrds) but share the lead vocal duties between three of us. The other guitarist sings the first and fourth verse.
We also do Turn, Turn, Turn and I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better.
In an ammo bunker, out west somewhere, are all the words to Tombstone Blues. I don’t know how it got there...but I have my suspicions.
I actually surprised myself a few months ago (BC19) when the guys I was playing with wanted to do Tambourine Man.....I stepped on my Mosaic 12-String Emulator and launched into it.....and remembered the guitar part note for note, and every word of the Byrds' version. (admittedly NOT all of Dylan's words) I guess that's one of those songs embedded into my DNA.
Incidentally, playing it for a somewhat mature crowd, it went over like gangbusters......I guess EVERYONE likes Mr Tambourine Man.
Been playing that song for a long time, long time. Don't even do 4 verses - only 3! You don't even have to do them in any particular order.
I might have to go back and listen, but I think the Byrds' version only did two verses. In the mid-sixties, I think we did a "hybrid" Byrds/Dylan version, that used one or two more verses. Anyway, what I recently did was the Byrds' "radio single" version.
