Mrs Robinson – the finest rhythym guitar you’ll ever hear…


A bit off-topic this, but we had some friends staying over the other night and Julian just took up learning to play the guitar a couple of years ago, and is doing what new guitarists do (I've been noodling on all sorts of guitars for about 18 years but can still remember this next bit): voraciously listening to as much as he can, and really listening to the guitar parts. We started talking about some songs that really stand alone, sometimes surprisingly, and I reckon you'll have to go a long way to beat the multi-layered acoustic rhythym guitar that goes all through Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs Robinson".


Maybe sometime next year I'll do a "High Fidelity" style list writing exercise... best drum intro (got to be Adam & the Ants' Kings of a Wild Frontier, surely?), bass line (Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall?) etc...


Happy New Year!
