  • After the Goldrush- Neil Young series

    Posted by David on April 12, 2021 at 3:16 pm

    This is the title song from Neils classic album. I had to capo it to be able to sing it and I tried some backward fingerpicking patterns.

    @David (I don’t know why it’s not tagging you) that was an awesome rendition “Really Truly” 👏 👏 👏

    That brought back so many memories of my youth – thank you!

    David – What a great performance. The use of finger picking as opposed to strumming is a great idea. Your finger picking pattern gives some of the piano like feel to the song. Great idea, I never would have thought to do it that way. I loved your version of the song. Both your voice and guitar sounded great. Thanks for posting your video.

      Mark its like you were reading my mind when I decided to fingerpick. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for your comments.

    Man, I like your version better than the original (well maybe a different type of like, because I really do love the original too). Definitely love this picked and the piano notes. You have a beautiful voice for this song.
