I had a buddy in junior high wrestling who would talk to people in attendence while he was pinning his opponent. I guess that's not quite as nice as Tim's anecdote. (But hey at least it's topical).

Just got it and watched it through once; and in fits and starts a couple of times. As an amateur I found it to be exactly what I needed to see. I love all the experimentation on this, especially the stuff that doesn't quite work. What it shows is that often you need to surrender your ego in order to service the song. These guys obviously don't let stubborness against themselves or each other prevent them from trying things a different way. Also it's amazing to watch Greg flesh out a guitar part, (pardon the pun). What an amazing guitar player! (I love that he's playing through a POD). He seems to have about fifteen ideas up his sleeve which can be whipped out at a moments notice. I wish they had something like this for each album. The way in which they approach the creative process is also great for me to see. They seem to have more of a general direction than a concrete idea when they start tracking. This is something that worried me about my stuff, as I tend to hash things out in the studio, rather than knowing exactly what I want to hear, (mostly). My only gripe is about "the legends tour". The performances are of course top notch, but the sound is overall mid-rangy which detracts from the quality of the performances. It also makes Terry's voice sound tenebrous and weak rather than the usual delicate but confident sound I'm used to. Overall the DVD is so good, I think I'll watch it regularly and repeatedly.

Still waiting to hear Fearful Symmetry, Kalhoun and Daniel Amos/Jubal's Last Band Red Face . So this is strictly provisional...

1.Alarma!
2.Motorcycle
3.Shotgun Angel
4.Horrendous Disk
5.Vox Humana


I know, I know Alarma bookset is 1 album... But I don't have the Alarma bookset Crying . I don't even have all the Alarma! Chronicles yet Crying Crying . Alas, my relative youth has foiled my ability to get good music.

“Posse In the Sky” by Daniel Amos off of the album “Shotgun Angel” Lyrics and music by the incomparable Terry Scott Taylor
Transcribed by clonliness

This is the way to play this song, to the best of my knowledge. The song is in E major, with a brief switch to C# harmonic minor. I will try to indicate the rhythmic pattern and the chord formation in a logical way. The 1e&a etc. at the top of the grid indicates a way to count the 16th note subdivisions. This should help to indicate the strum pattern.


Intro

Hey Youngin'. are you referring to me? I was listening to DA when your momma was slapping your little hinder. You young folk have to realize what us older folk had to endure....Basking in Shotgun Angel, then waiting years for Horrendous Disc, and then they messed with our minds and released Alarma just weeks after that (going from a Rock/Pop to New Wave in just weeks).

I had a look at some of them and they were OK. However, (not to be unkind), I don't agree with some of the chord choices, (though the bones of the songs appear to be there). Also what I have in mind is slightly more detailed. Also some of the links on that page are blind and redirect you to an index which goes nowhere. I don't mean to criticize as he's posted waaaay more transcriptions than I have, (0), and I would hate to surrender to shooting down the good-hearted, well intended efforts of a fellow musician. I know if I had some tabs posted and some anonymous jerk online, who had none, started to gripe about them, I'd be royally ticked. Please, don't take offense? Smile

In 77 I was born.

My dad was born in 55, so he was right in the demographic crosshairs when Shotgun Angel was released and Horrendous Disk was recorded. When Alarma! and HD came out he went right out and bought 'em. so my diapers were changed to Shotgun Angel. He also had several albums by Bruce Cockburn and Mark Heard, respectively, an album called Mourning to Dancing by a really obscure CCM artist named James Ward, Welcome to Paradise by Randy Stonehill and a Larry Norman something-or-other. I grew up in Oregon and have fond memories of driving to Disneyland for the first time listening to SA over and over. My dad was in a cover band and he played Alarma! for their bass player who said "If we ever sound like that I'll kill myself".
Time passed and the da records grew dusty... Anyway when I turned 16 my dad started teaching me guitar. I had a turntable set up in my room because it was the format all our old Cockburn stuff was on. Anyway I had the our three da albums in there too and listened to HD over and over. It reminded me of Zeppelin and The Beatles, oddly.
Time passed, my brother, my dad and I still played Cockburn but forgot da. Anyway, in our family business's warehouse I heard my brother singing a James Ward song, ("for to me to live is Jesus Christ/and to die would be so much better"), which played at my aunt's funeral when I was about five. The power of the memory was downright evocative, so I asked my dad whose song it was. It was through that that I rediscovered all the old albums my dad and I had stored away somewhere. I started recording all the vinyl to hard drive, cleaning up the noise and bouncing the stuff to CD. I became insatiable. I started looking for da, (and Steve Taylor and Mark Heard, etc.), we'd missed on ebay and spent a small fortune getting it. I can now happily report that I bought the final four da studio albums I had yet to get, (Motorcycle [CD], Kalhoun [CD], Fearful Symmetry [SS Vinyl] and Daniel Amos/Jubal's Last Band [pre-release]). I even bought songs from the Neverhood for my kids and me Smile . I have not heard the Swirling Eddies, Lost Dogs, Terry Scott Taylor solo, or Farmbeetles stuff but I will eventually, (after a brief respite for my pocket-book to recover).

whew
I collapse against the keyboard and pant at the massive effort the storytelling took.

Not to worry you phonies and fakes, a good transcriptionist knows how to dumb things down for the self-educated. As to compiling some stuff; what a great idea! I would love to see what other people have come up with.
