James Taylor youTube Fire and Rain

James Taylor playing Fire and Rain, his flawless fingerpicking on an Olsen guitar is a reminder how a well written song can stand up over time.  This acoustic guitar recording is about ten years old now.  Gone is the hair, and the face is a little older but the silky tenor voice still has a gorgeous texture.

 The second version is closer to original recording time. It’s a wonderful trip down memory lane.

I’ve posted two versions on my guitar blog site so you can make a comparison. 

It’s a reminder to us all how music is not necessarily something that we do for a little while, once we can play it can be with us our whole life. The need for us all to express emotions is an essential part of living a healthy emotional life.
