Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Dylan played harmonica exactly like Woody Guthrie. And Steve Earle plays like Dylan. And Jay Farrar plays like Steve, as does Colin Meloy of the Decembrists.It's a style that has more to do with guitar players honking on harps in neck holders than anything, and I happen to like it.
Here is Meloy playing Woody-style. Has a nice wild sound to it. It ain't James cotton, and it ain't for everyone, but I dig it.
