Lenny Breau "It Could Happen To You"

Postby George Beasley » Sun Jan 23, 2011 11:12 pm

I put up a video of Lenny's version of "It Could Happen To You", from his album "The Legendary Lenny Breau...Now!" I make a few mistakes, but after about 15 tries at recording, this is as good as I am going to be able to do. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

Very nice George... Thank you for doing the video and posting it. I sure love Lenny's chord voicings. He was a master at it. I sure know what you mean with your comment about "15 tries"... It seems when the camera goes on, the notes go somewhere else :) At least they do for me.. :D Anyway, good job..

I'm in awe, George. Great job on a very difficult piece.

If the universe would let me go back and spend a week with either Lenny or with Jerry, I would have a very hard time deciding which to spend time with. Incredibly creative artists.

Thanks for the kind words. That song is a handful, and it is still very rough, but with a few years of practice, I might be able to smooth it out.
Thanks,
George

Wow! I love it. Great job. ;) Did you transcribe that yourself?

p.s. just watched your "Always" clip too, very cool!

Thanks Dave,

A guy named Greg Stone, who posts on the Lenny Breau page on Facebook, transcribed "It Could Happen To You". I figured "Always" out on my own.
Thanks,
George
