    This Dylan song is really a duet. Trying to sing both Dylans style and Johnny Cash baritone was interesting. Used my handy harmonizer for the duet verses. This was a new learn for me.

    Very nicely done David. I’m not sure what a harmonizer is or what it does, but it sounds to me as if you would have to dub in one of the vocals. Your Dylan – Cash personas were great!

    Nice job, David. It’s a cool version you did. My favorite version is by Sam Bush, backed up by Jerry Douglas, on the “Peaks of Telluride” album. But your version is excellent as well!

    Very well done! I play that one too (not quite so well though).

    That is a wonderful rendition David ( @deagle )👏👏👏 Very nicely played👍👍 I learned that song using G – Bm – C chord progression. I could make out when you played the G & C chords, but not the Bm. Did you substitute the Bm or am I just not seeing it? This enquiring Guitar Geek would like to know!🤔

      It seems to me that he’s playing a Bm but only the top 4 strings, such that there’s an F# in the bass on the 4th string.

        So @dr_dave , you’re saying that he’s making that Am shape, but not barring – just using the index to cover the hi E at the 2nd fret? If that’s so (which seems perfectly logical), then I’m just not paying attention. I was looking for the barre🧐

        Dr. Dave is correct. I often play the non Barre Bm if there are no other Barre chords in the song. I just find it easier to move between chords. Thanks for listening. I value your feedback.
