Re: LIGHTFOOT by Nicholas Jennings - Sept.2017

I laughed when I read that becasue I really like the song and everyone else seems to hate it! It's also seems to be the only song so far (I'm up to '83) that he straight out criticises.

Re: Finally Saw Canada II

Travelled from Ireland. Yeah I was actually in a TIFF line myself when I spotted Massey Hall!

Great weather I was walking around Leslieville on Tuesday and had to buy suncream!

I've been a massive Lighfoot fan for the past few years and finally got across the Atlantic to Toronto last week. What an incredible country and city! Toronto was so cool, so clean, so vibrant! Just...

Re: Second Cup of Confusion - what does this mean?

I never thought about it specifically in terms of Gord's life, only, as a "song".

I took it to be about calling your ex and regretting it.

As an Irish person it is interesting to read this thread to read about Gord's visit here in the 80s. Reading about it in the past has always been both interesting and somewhat uncomfortable.

Re: earlier demo recording of Too Much To Lose

Thanks for all these replies and the old thread, very interesting about voicings etc.

I can understand wanting to avoid some of those chords, particularly on the 12-string.

Re: Favorite Terry Clements licks?

I really love the riffs running through Dream Street Rose, they just bounce around the song almost harmonic in style. Probably not a major Lightfoot tune but one of my favourites.
