I have been starting to play again. As my fretboard fingers have gotten strong enough, I have finally been able to play this again with the energy it deserves. It is without question one of my "A" songs. Thanks, Stan. RIP.

That clip is from a CBC production done on Stan after his death. If you search the clips on there you will perhaps find the whole show.
Stan was Great!

It always stuns me to see him play that guitar. Today that guitar sits in Paul Mills studio in Toronto. Jed and I have played it and I have to tell you, it is a strange feeling to pick up the musical instrument of someone whose music you idolize, and make music on it. Grit Laskin made that guitar, and it plays and sounds better than it looks, and it looks spectacular........

Whenever I play one of Stan's songs, in my mind I imagine Rick Fielding and Stan watching and critiquing........ and Rick carping about me hitting the low E string when I slam a D chord...... LOL. And Paul gets in my case about the same thing.

Saul, I did a concert with Garnet at The Ark in Ann Arbor. It is a hoot to see him so young. Thanks for posting this wonderful video.

All the best,

Mick

Mick, off topic a bit. Have you tried using your chording-hand thumb at the second fret of the bass E string? It gives the third note of the D chord, and gets the seventh outta there.

The CBC production was called One Warm Line. This link will take you to the first of six parts. Just follow the links to the other five. It has some great scenery footage of the Canso area where Stan's mother's roots lay.

Yep, 999, that is what I have come to be doing. It isn't a problem when I am sitting and doing a concert style performance, but when I am in a pub, and the band is smokin hot, I sometimes get carried away and start flailing. Rick used to climb in my stuff about that......makes me chuckle just thinking about it. The only problem I have with the thumb technique is that my left thumb joint was damaged by a 28 oz. framing hammer years ago when I was still earning a living with my carpenters tools. It makes it hard to bend it, but I manage.
