Thread Name: How out of tune was Don McLean's guitar?
Subject: RE: How out of tune was Don McLean's guitar?
Don McClean is a great songwriter. His song was musically lovely. I don't care about his slipped E string. His accompaniment was excellent. He seemed tired but delivered his
song with passion and conviction. I love that song. Most traditional folk performers are often out of tune but who cares? Answer: only pickiest pseudo-folkies.
