Thread Name: How out of tune was Don McLean's guitar?
Subject: RE: How out of tune was Don McLean's guitar?
I often think that Don McClean sings slightly off key , as do many performers Frank Sinatra , Neil Young come to mind -the pop singer Sade was accused of the crime recently .Perhaps he likes to have his guitar slightly out of tune ,or have it tuned to whatever way he had it when he was last playing it -some musicians are actually superstitious in that regard . Whatever happened to "close enough for jazz"?
