I posted my first stab at it here about two months ago; this revision shows some good input and suggestions (notably from the estimable Dean Gaudet, founder of the hobbes.linfield.edu accoustic archive). One major thing that was pointed out to me (and which I soon came to see when trying to fix section B) is that Leo plays this tune on a 12-string. I only have a 6-string, so my transcription attempts to duplicate the music as closely as possible, but there are places where it just wasn't posible to be note-for-note. I tried to retain the overall feel of the piece, and I think this is pretty close. (If anyone wishes to help my transcription efforts by giving me a 12-string, my email address is below! :-)) Leo plays this tune on the album in an open G tuning (DGDGBD) tuned down 4 half-steps to open Eb (Bb/Eb/Bb/Eb/G/Bb). You can tune your strings this low if you want, but if you use standard-pitch strings you will probably get a lot of buzz. You will have that great, low, "macho guitar" sound, though. Nobody will mess with you if you play that low. Have fun with it; it's one of my favorite Leo tunes. As I said before, improvements, suggestions and comments are always welcome. Please email suggestions to me, and look for the most recent version at Dean's accoustic archive at hobbes.linfield.edu (although hopefully there won't be many revisions from this point, unless I did something really stupid - or unless someone wants to do a real 12-string transcription). Thanks, and enjoy the piece. Steve Linberg [email protected] |-------------------------------------------------------------------------| Notes: o Open G tuning (tuned down if desired, see above) - DGDGBD o I play this tune with a concave brass slide on my pinky (4th finger). They're nice if you can get one; they go for about $12. o (sX/6) = use slide across X strings from bottom (i.e. s5/6 means the slide covers the 5th through 1st strings, s3/6 means the slide covers the 3rd through 1st strings) o Someone (and I've lost the email, so I can't credit them properly - sorry!) correctly pointed out that I neglected to mention Leo's wonderful "slide slam" in the last playthrough of section A. Whether this was a mistake or intentional is becoming a question of legend, but all agree that it's priceless. He slams the slide down against the fretboard (possibly the underside) without interrupting the rhythm of the song at all. The spot where he does this is marked with an "(X)" in section A. You can try it if you want - I've never been satisfied with my attempts and really think of it as his irreproducable signature on the piece. o Resist the temptation to play this one too quickly! Take your time. Let the notes ring, and the slide scorch. This is the music of a man who knows he is free. (Sorry for the sappy interpretation :-)) o Play in the following order: 1. Intro 2. Section A 3. Section A 4. Section B 5. Section A (with gusto) 6. Final section (crowd: GET ON WITH IT!)
