What's all this about Cash stealing Folsom Prison Blues?
Here is my best shot at this. The good guitarin is later on in the song but the funny lyrics in the first half are good too.
Is there any guitar lead in this song? All I heard was mandolin and violins.
Well you might be right, I'll go stand in the corner,,, oh the shame
"Luxury Liner" was the very first one I thought of when I opened the thread, and the OP got right in there with it.
I have actually been asked a couple of times recently by friends to suggest some "typical classic country guitar playing". In addition to LL I came up with...
I am sure it is not a coincidence that there is a connection between the two choices.
"He (Cash) took the melody and many of the lyrics from a song called "Crescent City Blues," which was written by Gordon Jenkins and sung by his wife Beverly Mahr. After the live version of the song became a hit in 1968, Jenkins sued Cash and settled for $75,000."
But this has nothing to do with "Comfortably Numb".
That's pretty much standard practice for the '50s and '60s, pretty much until the Beatles era everyone was just ripping off each other's songs for a quick hit.
I am in a country band and my two favorite solos to play are East Bound and Down, and Wichita Lineman...
I seen both of them mentioned... those would probably be at the top of the list for me
You, sir are an apostate! There ought to be a damned law...
hahahaha yeah I have never been one to drink the Kool-Aid or succumb to the peer pressures of liking something I deemed bovine excrement!
All songs are some form of country music, these more than most
A couple of great examples of lead guitar in country based songs:
0:00 - 0:14:
1:10 - 1:25:
And this, the whole song, particularly 0:42 - 1:14
If there is one thing a country song is, it is a balllad.
I’ve read that blues guitar technique involves bends, slides, hammer ons and pull offs.
I don’t see how all of these elements don’t also define country guitar technique, and blues guitar evolved from country guitar.
Well, Marty and cousin Kenny sure deserve a place of honor in this thread!
Thanks @DugT ! Tasty!
Thanks also to @peteb … great music, whether country or no
