    Bob Dylan's surprising awesomeness, had no idea...

    I been digging this Byrds song called You Aint Going Nowhere. Come to find out it is a Dylan song he wrote when he was in Woodstock out of the public eye and recovering from the motorcycle accident:

    Joan Baez had a fairly big hit with it back in the day. That's the version I remember. Great song!!

    Who played the riffs?

    Not to veer so sharply right out of the gate, but Dylan's guitaring had some mojo that propelled him to stardom.

    Originally, he'd come to New York, Greenwich Viillage (I probably got this all wrong like everything else), trying to be somebody and find himself. He found Dave Van Ronk among others that had an influence on him, Van Ronk I remember saying that Dylan maybe ripped off his style a little bit, or a lot.

    Somehow he emerged as a pretty damn compelling singer songwriter guitar player.

    His guitar playing caught my ear, and in some ways I probably don't even know yet, influenced me.

    I think that’s the first song I ever learned how to play. My buddy and I drove everyone crazy playing it over and over.
    Will always have a soft spot for that song.

    Nice, I have this one on the list for tonight's open mic with 12-string, and for my gig at the Old Folks Home with ukulele tomorrow afternoon.

    And I will stick with the Byrds/Baez version, though I love those quirky Dylan lyrics:

    Clouds so swift, the rain falling in
    Gonna see a movie called Gunga Din
    Pack up your money, pull up your tent, McGuinn
    You ain't goin' nowhere

    Ooh-wee, ride me high
    Tomorrow's the day that my bride's a-gonna come
    Ooh-wee, are we gonna fly
    Down into the easy chair

    Genghis Khan and his brother Don
    Couldn't keep on keeping on
    We'll climb that bridge after it's gone
    After we're way past it

    Ooh-wee, ride me high
    Tomorrow's the day that my bride's a-gonna come
    Ooh-wee, are we gonna fly
    Down into the easy chair

    Buy me some rings and a gun that sings
    A flute that toots and a bee that stings
    The sky that cries and a bird that flies
    A fish that walks and a dog that talks

    Ooh-wee, ride me high
    Tomorrow's the day that my bride's a-gonna come
    Ooh-wee, are we gonna fly
    Down into the easy chair

    Ooh-wee, ride me high
    Tomorrow's the day that my bride's a-gonna come
    Ooh-wee, are we gonna fly
    Down into the easy chair

    We play that one in my acoustic project. Kind of a repetitive pattern, but that makes it good for jams too. Goes over well at a pickin' party I sometimes attend.
