Beautiful song, beautiful guitar. I finger pick that one, I think I'd like to try what he's doing there.
That is raw talent at its best.
Thanks for sharing, amazing song and performed by one of the greatest of all time
I watch that clip every six months or so. One of my all-time favorite songs. Very fortunate after loving it so long to see him do it to perfection a couple years ago at the Blues n Brews Festival.
I play it at my solo gigs.
Beautiful, thx for sharing this vid!
I love this song. Especially like the acoustic version on “EC was here” (I know, no Winwood and am crazy about him … but great version regardless).
What the heck... is he alt tuned on the low E string only or something? The way I play it the last two chords are F-G. (talking about Winwood)
Here's a superb fingerpicked version. Gawd this has great tone...
His #6 is tuned to D. He is playing F and G on the 3rd and 5th frets. I finger pick that by sliding an F shape from the first to G on the 3rd, but I like how he leaves room for his vocal up there by filling in the bottom instead.
I came up with a simple flat-picked version in standard tuning about 8 years ago and posted it on YouTube, and I'd almost forgotten all about it. I recently began playing it again, slower now and do a little intro, but here was the original version.
Man, tap154 I love how that guitar sounds. Is that a guild? It has such a cool, different kind of sound.
Thanks sleazy pot pie, it's a Silver Creek T-170 that I bought for two hundred bucks on sale from Musician's Friend probably about 3 years before that video. It's almost identical in its specifications to the EC Martin with a nice v-neck, and I love it. Solid rosewood body and spruce top.
I play alot of that on the first position chords finger picking ,its interesting to see him move up the neck for nthe G and A bass notes , I will have to try that
thank you for posting
that was so cool - dude has been Rockin it since he was a teen (literally), and he STILL sounds that good!!
I watch that video at least once a week. I love everything about it.
Good lord, that is an exceptional piece. It is a moving and evocative song on its own, but man this guy wrings everything out of it. I'm kind of floored.
winwood should have know as god not clapton
Fricking amazing and beautiful.
If anybody is interested it looks like the guitar Steve is playing was a gift from Eric Clapton, a Martin 000-42MEC. You can see Clapton's signature at the 20th fret.
