Good stuff Tom. The guitar takes me on a trip. :)
Just what it’s meant to do…
It’s one of those songs where the lyrics and music work perfectly together.
Love it, Tom!!!
Glad to hear it! It really is a wonderful song.
Beautiful. Mournful. I also love the guitar.
Yes, there is that quality about it.
Here’s a little bit about the song from Wikipedia:
“Gregg Allman recorded “Melissa” primarily as a tribute to his brother, who adored the song; the song was written in 1967 and was one of the first he saved after dozens of writing attempts. Allman had previously not shown it to other members of the band (“I thought it was too soft for the Allman Brothers,” he said), and was saving it for a possible solo album he assumed he would one day record.”
Thanks for that, Tom. Nice back story on the song. ;)
My pleasure, Judy.
