If this was 9/19, Thelma and Hey Louise could go pay Jimmy a visit...while we are visiting the Brill Building and lunching at Tavern on the Green! We may even have invited him to join us for lunch...oh well, Jim's loss...

James Taylor is a talented man. He REALLY plays the guitar on stage. He puts on an awesome show. Next to Neil he is my favorite live singer.

Neil really does play the guitar on stage as well though like Springsteen he use it in a dramatic fashion.

Taylor plays hard chords, and even moves his CAPO up and down as he does a song.

I have a Neil Diamond guitar chordbook at home and was pleasently surprised to see how complex some of Neil's song are.. a few barre chords here and there and some flats and sharps. True the bang hits were mostly EADE but as he matured into a better songwriter his chord progression became more complex. it's a kind of myth that Neil uses easy chords for his songs. Also, I've seen Neil use a capo. A capo doesn't mean anything more than changing the pitch/key to suit your voice.

Last year on the "Behind the Music" T.V. show, Neil talked about an unusual chord he used in "Sweet Caroline", and this chord, just when he goes into "hands, touching hands" and later "warm, touching warm", really enhances the song.

Quite ironic for someone who admitted to being a 3-chord composer.
