Another TotallyGuitars.com collaboration with Daryl a.k.a. ffsooo3 on guitar and John a.k.a. jhall doing vocals. Two vocal tracks were recorded (primary and harmony).
Here is the Youtube video of us performing this song:
Twelve days. A dozen tunes. More than a little archive digging...
Today we look back 50 years. And also about six months. Simon & Garfunkel first released this track way back in 1966. J. Tom Hnatow and I hunkered down in his basement studio in Lexington, KY this past spring and banged out a version of our own for a compilation released this past summer called "Guilt By Association."
A lot changes in half a century, but timeless pop tunes have a knack for holding their own. Our resident beat-maker and human time-keeper, Robby Cosenza, manned the drums. Tom donned his producer cap and played a bunch of instruments to boot. I plucked away on the guitar, geeked out with the arpeggiating banjo on Tom's old Hammond organ, and did my best to tackle all the harmonies in Rose's absence.
Taking stabs at iconic tunes goes one of two ways -- really well or exceedingly bad. We think this turned out a-ok.
Part of a collection of three iconic songs about the meaning of "home."
