It's a cultural thing innit.
I just wondered if Adam (or anyone else) has got a theory as to why that particular collection of notes, played in that particular style would exert such a hold on me. I just hear it and feel it, but I'm interested to know if there's a technical explanation.
Maybe it's something to do with the fact that, somewhat unusually, the guitar shares equal billing with the voice, weaving in and out, doing more interesting things in some ways melodically and harmonically than the singer -as opposed to saying something with lyrics. Added to the fact it's got a lovely tone and the player has the great knack of making it all sound improvised and effortless. (Which it probably wasn't but who knows?)
Jamie, I've already drawn attention to the very ending (post song) of this video. Take heed.
And you did have this CD with you at our last bash. Maybe it'll get an airing at our next one - which happens to be Saturday, June 23rd, at Limehouse's Jamboree, with extra-special guest, Little George Sueref.
