 NOTES AND COMMENTS


 


 Bert Jansch is probably best known as a member of Pentangle, the legendary


 British acoustic folk-blues-jazz group. He and John Renbourn (the other


 guitar in Pentangle) developed picking styles so complex that they became


 known as "folk baroque". Angie appears on Bert's first solo album, which


 was originally released on Transatlantic records. I have the American


 release, on Vanguard VSD-79212, called "Lucky Thirteen".


 


 Bert was highly influential in the early British folk scene. Donovan Leitch


 was so in awe of him that there are songs called "Bert's Blues" and "House


 of Jansch" on early Donovan albums. It is not clear whether Paul Simon


 learned Angie from Bert or from Dave Graham, although it *is* known that


 Simon was in England after the recording of Simon and Garfunkel's first


 album (and before the electrification of "The Sounds Of Silence").


 


 Some differences in Simon's version: I believe Paul uses three-note chords


 in Part C1 rather than two-note ones. Something like:


 


 PART C1 (Paul Simon style)


 [1/4] [3/4] [4/4] 


 

 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------
 -----1---p-0---1-p-0--------------- -----------------------------1---p---
 -----2---p-0---2-p-0-------2------- -1---------------------------2--- ---
 -----2---p-0---2-p-0-------2------- -2---------------------------2---p---
 --------- -----------------3------- -2---------------2--------------- ---
 -0-------------------------------------------0---------------0-----------

 


 


 and so forth. Also, his picking on the B string in Part A seems less


 intricate and more fluid, e.g. the first measure goes something like:


 


 PART A (4/4)


 

 
 ---------------------------------
 ---------0-h1----0---------------
 -----2---------2-------------2---
 ---------------------------------
 -0-------0-----------------------
 -----------------3-------3-------

 


 


 As far as Part D goes, it is not widely known that this is actually a quote


 from another song, called The Work Song. I have this on GNP-Crescendo #86,


 "There's A Meetin' Here Tonight" by Joe & Eddie. The first verse and chorus


 lyrics are:


 


 Breakin' up big rocks on the chain gang,


 Breakin' rocks and soothin' my time.


 Breakin' up big rocks on the chain gang,


 Oh Lord I committed a crime.


 Hold it steady right there while I hit it


 I reckon that ought to get it.


 Been workin', I been workin',


 And I still got so terrible long to go.


 


 I highly recommend digging out this obscure gem and listening to it for


 a deeper understanding of the possibilities inherent in Part D. It's


 attributed to Nate Adderly & Oscar Brown Jr., so really Angie ought to have


 their names on it as well.


 


 I've always been fond of Angie because it was the first song I learned to


 play on the guitar. Yeah, I know. I was too young and stupid to know any


 better ... :-)


 


 Oh yes, if you have big hands, it's possible to fret the bass string with your


 thumb (wrapped around the neck). Personally, I only do this for the F.


 


 Anji (another PS arrangement?)


 ~ == hammer or pull-off, as appropriate


 ^ == bend

 This is the basic riff; sometimes he throws in an E off the open high string.
