Default Re: New Video Is Here!: Gordon Lightfoot: Ode to Big Blue Finale Recreated

Ahhhh, Thank You Gail! This ending is a clever example of carefully crafted chaos by Lightfoot and Co.. Gordon is playing a regular FAST Travis picking "bass part" striking down on the A and D strings maintaining a steady rhythm. Red plays in rhythm but not a steady one in the Bass and starts his part on the D string (instead of the root note of A as Gordon does as mentioned above). The third guitar, at the bottom of the screen, plays its own rhythm altogether...and somehow, all the parts jangle on to reach their final destination in a "wow" finish. It was fascinating to work that ending out on the guitars.
