Rock Social Import Tailspin Band Guitar Covers
cover tunes which I did not write are found on this page. I first
learned guitar strumin then pickin and finally on to electric. My
roots are in the acoustic so it seems fitting to include the magic of
acoustic. It is just me on all vocals here.
From The Beginning
good place to start is perhaps From the Beginning. This was
recorded by Emerson Lake and Palmer way back 50 years or so in classic
rock. This acoustic version stops just before the synthesizer
would come in on the original tune.
Fire On The Mountain
song is generally credited to the Marshall Tucker Band but may be a
cover they did as well. Many bands have done this tune including
any band I have been in for the 'pluged in' version. Here is the
'unplugged' version on acoustic guitar.
Hobo In My Mind
song was written by Tom Paxton I believe and I learned it in a folk
guitar class in the mid 70s. I dedicate this version to my Mother
who has always liked this one best of the songs I have played
Old Piano Roll Blues
switch gears to a traditional piano roll blues tune that was adapted
for acoustic guitar. This is a good old tune and reminds
one of the old piano ragtime songs of the early part of the last
All Night Laundrymat Blues
of my favorite rock guitar players put this on his album for a laugh
and it is just such a fun song I had to include it. This
one I dedicate to my 'baby' sister who really liked this one when I
used to play it for her back when we both lived at home.
Mood For A Day
arrangement of an instrumental was originally written and performed by
a guitar virtuoso called Steve Howe who was the guitar player in the
lengendary early progressive rock band called 'Yes'
