C6 tuning with string 6 tuned down to A to play the low part. I'm using a guitar pick for this one. Also using delay, which I seldom use but it seems to work well for this song. Thanks for listening!

Haven’t heard this tune in a long time...thanks for reminding me Doug...a beautifully played version for sure! I live in the Cherokee Nation’s capitol of Tahlequah, Oklahoma and this song to me has a Native American melody. Thanks, Carl

Thanks Carl, I too hear a Native American vibe in this song. As I was recording it I noticed that it has the same three chords as "Ghost Riders in the Sky"! ...Am, C, F.

Very cool Doug! On lap steel it has sort of a spaghetti western/surf feel Smile I remember when the Simon & Garfunkel "Bridge Over Troubled Water" album came out with their version on it - all of the cool kids had it!

Yeah, I agree with that. I have to say though, I never liked Simon and Garfunkel's version of the song, for some reason. Maybe it's just the phase I was in, in 1970. Laughing

I was into the Allman Brothers back then but girls loved the Bridge Over Troubled Water album so we had to at least pretend to be sensitive and like it, right? Smile

Every time you present a nice creation I think of having played gigs with Rachel Landry where you played a fine lead guitar and had to endure me on steel. El Condor Pasa is another pleasing notch on your belt.

Manny, we had a lot of fun playing with Rachel. I hope we get back to playing gigs again soon. I played about a dozen outdoor gigs this summer but it’s going to be a while before we do any indoor gigs.

Nice job, Doug. Sweet tone as always. I read some where that the tune is a traditional Peruvian folk song.

I'm an old Simon and Garfunkel fan and this is by far the best version of this song I have heard. Thanks for sharing it. Very Happy Mr. Green

Thanks Chuck and Don, yes, it’s an old Peruvian tune, written in 1913. I read that when Paul Simon added lyrics and S & G recorded it, Paul was made aware that the song was under copyright and he agreed to pay the licensing fees on the song.

Thanks Larry, I do enjoy playing the lap steel and experimenting with the different tunings. On my gigs however, I always play the pedal steel. Old habits are hard to break! Smile Smile
