OK, I've hit into a Dylan mode ..... ;) besides, who can get enough Dylan? :)

I went to grab my C harp and looks like the grandkids got there before I did. Dylan does a nice harmonica riff at the end of the song. I was all prepped and... well there you have it. Grandkids and things that make noise! :)

Anyway, heres a fairly bland Dylan cover that turns into an exercise in strumming! Straight forward strumming pattern for those who wish to work on strumming.

Chords.. C / G / F / Dm / E in standard tuning.

Dang, Les. I thought maybe that was Dylan singing there for a minute ;-) Nice job!

Becoming a great guitarist has less to do with fancy moves than it does becoming a master of the basics and learning musicianship.
It's not what you can't do. It's how you play what you already know.

Great going Les!

Sounds like a mixture of Dylan with some Petty in your vocals.

Yet another gem, Les. The reindeer armies certainly have come home, and just in time for Christmas too. When I hear you play Dylan (I'm a life long Dylan fan, in case you haven't noticed) I'm so impressed, and then dismayed because I know I'll never be that good no-matter how long I practice (sigh!). But it really does inspire me to keep trying, so I'm very happy that you're in a 'Dylan mode' and the more the better as far as I'm concerned.
I'm a beginner at strumming, so can you give us the strumming pattern? I've just read the 'figuring out strumming' thread so will try to do some work on it now with this to strum along to. Are you using the Dylan style G/C chord-ons in this sample?
btw, your strumming on this is so smooth - the rythm never wavers, it's rock-solid and really drives the song along (sigh!), certainly something to aim for - well done :rockon:

Don't worry about the strumming pattern, Les - when I tried it, it was pretty obvious. This is a great track to play along with and practise your strumming, folks :yes: Thanks Les

Don't know if you're interested, but I found someone who says that in 'Don't Look Back' you can see Dylan tuning the 6th string down to C and using a capo on 2 for this song that he plays to Donovan in the hotel room. He reckons this allows him to plug away at the C base note while leaving his pinky free to hammer on an F on string 4 to give a Csus4. He maintains that he is using Donovan's guitar that is tuned 1 semi-tone down, so you need Capo 1 to play along with the video. OK, it's trivia.... but maybe I have a trivial mind :)
