About this Video
Key: Bb, 4/4 time, about 108bpm, instrumental ballad country pop
Another great contribution to the American folk era of the 1960's.
Written by Michael Merchant and sung by a newly formed trio known as the Pozo Seco Singers. composed of a young Don Williams, Lofton Kline and the voice of Susan Taylor (later known as Taylor Pie).
I was immediately taken by the tune back in the 60's, great guitar and vocal arrangment. Ths song was wellin keeping with the force of folk and political climate of the time.
I decided to keep the chord progression the way it was but change the note stylings to provide a differing feel to the tune yet still keep its wonderful melody. This was to keep the tonal quality different from the repeating sequences of the verses.
Guitar TAB creation was based on the original key of Bb with no need of a capo.
I had a back track produced professionally based on my notes to the music composer. The BT has kept to the spirit and tonal richness of the original tune.
