Yeah it was pretty well done. Lots of footage where Dylan is apparently talking to someone who isn't there....... :wink:

I loved the press footage!

"How many artists do ou think are involved in the revolution?" (Or something like that... :? )

Bob: "Oh, about 136."

"What do you mean? About 136 or exactly 136?"

"About 136." "Either that or 142.." :lol:

Don't think I got it word for for word, but it was hillarious!

Great documentary too... :)

Stairway to Freebird!

Good show I thought. I'm not a big Dylan fan, but I am a big fan of The Band. I tried to watch Dylan's acoustic playing closely and I never saw a barre chord. Lots of capo use, but open chord shapes. Maybe there is hope for all of us who find barre chords a challenge.

Well spotted - I noticed that too. Joan Baez played a mean barre though.

What I loved about the footage of Dylan pre accident, was his mastery of playing bass / strum patterns repetitively - he really seemed totally in control of the guitar. Plenty of use of subtle little chords shapes and dropped D tuning, and I loved his use of the bass strings, really fantastic to watch.

I loved the whole thing, thought it was fantastic.

Auntie Beeb (The BBC) is being particularly kind to us Brits at the moment...following on from the Scorsese documentary, last night we got "Don't Look Back"...Pennebaker's excellent documentary of the '65 British tour...followed by "Dylan's Legends"... a look at the lives of three people who Dylan wrote songs about....Rubin Carter, Woody Guthrie and Lenny Bruce.....

Hmmm....wonder what's on tonight?

:D :D :D

Had a look at the TV magazine...

BBC4, 11.45 to 12.40, "Highway 61 Revisited".....that's tonight (thursday)...

and tomorrow, Friday, we've got "Talking Bob Dylan Blues: A Tribute Concert"...a celebration of the poetic musician's songs...well that's what it says in the TV guide....8.30 to 10.30pm....

So thanks, Auntie Beeb...almost makes up for 20 years of Eastenders....

:D :D :D
