O jerusalem

Martin Simpson

X-News-Software: Ameol
The hymn "O Jerusalem" as played by Martin Simpson on "A Closer Walk With Thee", where he makes a nice segue into "Go Down Moses" (I'm working on that one...).
I'm always amazed by how simple these arrangements are once I've worked out what he's doing, which can be tricky - that Sobell guitar of his has such a rich harmonic response that a simple counterpoint can often sound like a full chord. I guess studio production plays some part in this too. Plus the fact that the guy plays with such extraordinary sensitivity.
Anyway, the first part of this really is simple. The second is a bit trickier, and it took me a long time to be quite sure of the fingering for the first two measures. Stick with it, though, it's a beautiful lick.
Any comments very welcome.
Best wishes,
