What model Martin is Steve playing? Sounds and looks beautiful. Looks like some special 00-45 model.
I don't have a clue what he's playing, but this is one of my top songs out of the fifty thousand I've heard. I'm happy to say I got to see it live a couple years ago in Telluride. The End.
Let me know how it works out for him. I hope he finds his way soon.
I'm not an acoustic guy. But I'd look for an 000 body with alot of bling (and a drop D tuning).
yeah.. drop D. love that guy. what an icon
I’ve loved that song since I first heard it.
I do it in my solo gig.
I’d guess the Martin is an OM42, or 00042.
This is one of the best versions of this song!
The guitar sounds great, and it's tuned a whole step down, with the low e string tuned down two whole steps (C).
I laugh at the lyrics sometimes, it seems like he's telling someone to get off the toilet.
I think the Martin D45 had the trim like that one....split back, rosewood
The original Blind Faith version has a beautiful interplay of two guitars. The nylon string guitar makes it for me. I wonder if both guitars were Steve or was Eric one of them.
Though I don’t know for sure, I always assumed Clapton played the nylon string part.
It sounds like Clapton, IMO.
The thing that bugged me about the original is Ginger Baker’s drumming on it, particularly the cymbal crashes.
Less woulda been more, again, just my opinion.
I wish I had Steve Windwood's vocal range (and his great tone/timbre), but that's not gonna happen
Our band would be playing the entire Blind Faith album in our repertoire!
When we had a great female lead singer in our band, Kim ( from 2000-2005) we did 3 or 4 rock duets, including "Can't Find My Way Home." With ( of course) a 10 minute jam in the middle, like all our songs. Hell of a fun, neighborhood band.
We were working on "Sea of Joy" but around 2005, Kim left us to try her singing luck in San Francisco.
Well All Right
00042 seems right . Visually , the OM would have a different pick guard . Ala the Clapton model . Wide neck with short scale and 1/4" scalloped bracing slightly forward shifted .
Check out the version of John Barleycorn Must Die in the same venue .
Love that Fireside version. This one's not too shabby either. Heck, the whole album is great.
I did not know for many years that "Well Alright" was a Buddy Holly cover!
First, as an 11 year old kid I heard the Blind Faith version ( my 18 year old sister had the album- I absorbed ALL her cool records in my head, as a kid)
Then in the late '70's, Santana did it ( I thought " Cool, they're doing a Blind Faith song!")
Then in the 1980's we bought a Best of Buddy Holly Compilation ( 2 cassettes!)
from Columbia House, finally hearing the original
I didn't know Holly did it until about 5 minutes ago. Just listened. Excellent original, thanks.
Blind Faith puts me in a special place.
Interesting that he's bundled up in front of a fire.
For a while ( late '90's) our blues/older R&R band played 4 Buddy Holly songs, and our drummer sang " Well Alright"
We wore Buddy Holly glasses ( black, no lenses) on a special Buddy Holly's Birthday gig!
Great song. I started messing around with a solo acoustic version after seeing a Justin Johnson video of his version. It's in my acoustic "sit around and noodle" set now.
