Default Re: GOrd changes tempo on songs from time to time

you are probably correct on the GL analyzing the thing to death. I would rather err on the side of a bit too fast as my gospel. I love the quote from GL song....I use it as my mantra on the subject...

I hear so many artists doing cover songs slower and I find them just wrong.

I'll take the note of 7 Island ...

I think Early Morning Rain is faster on the first recording than GGold ...When I play it I find that I start to over step the I think EMR is going to done faster for me going forward. EMR on that first album has a great tempo to it ..IMHO.

Do you notice the difference on EMR's studio recordings and GL's live performances? His live one is slower too. ..most of the time I think.
