Paul you are old but...

Man! this guy might be so old but he still haven't loose his beat. I've been loving this man since I don't know when. He's always changing, his production might be slow, but I still find it hard to cope up with his changing style. His melody? No doubt about it. His Beat? I just said still there. His saying? maybe I am too slow or too..... I don't want to say, to understand. But I still love his music. His youthfulness makes young chap like us feel left out, unable to catch up. After I watch this clip at youtube I say he will not die, his music gave him immortality. Here I go for his clip for the third time... 

When I first listen to the One Trick Pony album, I just cannot digest. I was so attached to the Simon and Garfunkel era of folk style music, and I was looking forward to that sweet music in Paul Simon composing, but he has moved on and grow to this rich style of music, but lucky for me after some time of listening to it, I began to love the whole lots of it, every song in this album was so rich and full of inspiration. And so I again starts to attached to this era of Paul Simon style, but as history plays out, he changed again.

The power of Mary Travers

This is in 1970 and I was only seven, thanks to technology I now can see this clip. They were one of my most favorites when I starts to learn guitar. Peter Paul and Mary, those that fall in love with you will never forgets you. With technologies that human developed, more of your fans are yet to be born. They are truly a legend in my heart. Simple combination, melodies rhyme and harmonies. Till the day I die, their songs will sooth my soul.

Jim Croce-Forgotten first love

I forgotten how did I get to know him, I think I heard his song "I'll have to say I love you in a song", I was still a student then, think I was at a friend's house, "Er" his name. it was a compilation of folk song. Later on whenever I came across music stall, I'll try looking for his album, found some and start listening, and find that his guitar playing was great staff but I was unable to pick up by merely listen to it (that's how I normally learn).

Than I found a song book, all Jim Croce's song and with simple tab on it, and I start to learn from that. Operator is one that I put lots of effort into it, but sadly cannot play without partner, only play along with the tape playing.

Great stuff, beautiful combinations of acoustic guitar playing, I only feel that his lyrics was mostly sad, and lonely. His music was original style, very folksy and individual, I think it will be great challenge to surpass himself if he didn't pass on in such a sudden manner.

Guitar beginner will love to play this song, but than again it's double guitar playing, you need partner for this one, or else half of the feeling gone...

With such simple musical instrument they manage to produce such effect! just perfect!

And this is what I meant by sweet song but negatively sad. Those day I was a lonely college student, riding my old bicycle slowly home, and this song imprinted in my brain, now it is like what nlp says "anchoring" that sad lonely feeling to me any time this song was played.

Another sad one but sooo beautifully done!
