I am my father's child
Am my father's child
Train that's bound for nowhere
Runnin' free and wild
I am my father's child

The world has passed me by
World has passed me by
See the comin' shadow
I aint got time to cry
The world has passed me by

The world has passed me, passed me by

I am already free
Am already free
Goin be like Christmas
When the devil come for me
Am already free

I'm already, already free
I'm already, already free

I would wager that you're among a small minority who share that opinion. As a guitar player, aren't you tired of hearing the same old pentatonic blues licks? I sure am. If you're never heard it, "Sahib Teri Bandi" by Derek Trucks is exquisite. His playing pushes the capabilities of the instrument well beyond the tried and true licks worn out by countless players.
That's it! Who needs "More Cowbell" when there's a jaw harp in someones pocket???

Remove the quakey guitar from the equation, and you have a half-decent outfit.
So sad.  Loved Kofi.

...and Derek Trucks
 
still sucks...
All U “Critics” try playing slide guitar like Derek, Sonny Landreth or Duane! I saw Derek play with Eric Clapton & Doyle Bramhall II in San Diego & he “mopped” the stage with both of them! U could see Eric’s jaw drop! The tune may “bore” U yet I assure U, the musicians are superb!
This strikes me as almost Malian or West African and not the blues! There is no Son House living here!
RIP Kofi

Not an entirely neutral observation, I think.

But I agree that the overall vehemence of responses to opinions has increased considerably, of late.
As for civil war & doom, I guess we'll just have to wait & see.
 
 

"As for civil war & doom, I guess we'll just have to wait & see." How's it going?
Enough already.

Yea, kind of tired of this repetitious slide sound..Play a different cut, at least.
5 -> 3

Agreed.  Maybe he has other songs but the way he plays always sounds the same.  Long and frustratingly repetitious.

I already gave it a 2 when it played last week .
Bill, are you daring me to go to 1??

The song says it. The point to me. Oh well.

Kind of tired of this song.  Interesting slide sound with its glissando, but he'd do well to listen to Duane and add a bit of oomph to his playing, IMHO.

                               AGREED.
                              The technique and ability are there, but he needs to grow a pair ~



This morning's playlist has been wonderful, which is no real surprise. Thanks!
This is a 10...easily...if you want a negative number for this you ain't got one lick of blues in your soul...seek redemption

How to start smiling no matter what's happening: Sing this lyric as loud as you can while driving down the highway in a convertible under the moon ...

Going be like Christmas,

When the devil comes for me —
I am already free

Sounds like Harry Manx


Just like Daniel Lanois's song Oh Marie...smashing

And this comment proves why we are doomed as a nation. So much damn polarization - even in fucking song comments - that we will eventually have another civil war. So unnecessary, but I guess it feels empowering to belittle another from a place of safety.

For a minute there, I thought the needle was stuck on the record.  Pretty good picking, though.

I think you meant to spell that word as follows:  onanistic.  If one uses such words, one ought to also spell them correctly.

P'raps that's something we all need to get used to.

It's Hall and Oates time:  Say it isn't so. 
This one is being played way too often, at least for my taste...

Edit: Everytime I hear this it get's more annoying... Down to one now...

Brilliantly crap sound this guy has. 
Just change the station if you don't like it "cause I sure do!

Trucks's guitar reminds me of Michael Bloomfield's eastern tinged modality on Butterfield's East-West. Very cool.
Wonderfully hypnotic guitar playing.
There's a very similar live version that's available for download on Amazon from the "Roadsongs" album.  Highly recommended. {#Cool}

I dig how DT manages to blend nuances of Jimi, Robin T, Stevie Ray& Duane A, among others, into his passionate meanders of string
Ok...last song was Allman Brothers...now Derek Trucks...the next song will be from Derek and the Dominoes?
And when will these guys tour the Midwest? Geez...we are dying out here for some freakin RnR!!!

Perhaps you are referring to the level of your taste and not the present track, which it seems is actually magnifico-boffo.

Yes, yes, yes! LOVE this band and his sound in particular. I turned my RP player volume all the way up for this. And explained (but not did justify) my actions to a co-worker!
Damnit, his upcoming tour is nearly always just ahead or behind where I'm going to be for the next many months.

LOVE RP.  It is what I listen to all day at work.  The lack of repeated tunes and the genres played make it the best on the net.  IMO, you could still improve the site if you took every band played here and found one or two other songs not in the set lists and mixed them in.

 
I'd like to second this.
Hot Lawdy! If you know it, if you feel it, I can't add a thing!!!

Did Trucks take his guitar and songwriting lessons from Daniel Lanois?

Have to admit, kind of tired of hearing this song and its weepy slide.  I usually like this style, but I don't know why this begins to grate on me.  Sorry.

Just saw them last Friday on a beautiful Friday evening in Vermont.  Awesome as always!

{#Clap}  What a bad a$$ band!
This guy better learn to play that guitar. It's only a 9. 
Just bought my tickets to see Tedeschi Trucks Band again this summer.  Looking forward to another great evening of powerful Soul, R&B and Rock-n-Roll.
Beautiful,and great segue from Harry Manx - Baby Please don't Go.

RP is costing me a fortune in CD's (who would want only a track?)
Oh my goodness!!  {#Daisy}
Love Derek Trucks!
{#Bananajam}..... so frigging good

Blues just rocks
 
Oh hell yes.
Such a distinctive first few bars - a great song (though it had to be good to follow Hendrix 'Little Wing')
Great set DJ!!!  Love reading all the comments on Roger Miller while being treated to Canned Heat and Derek, uplifting!
Wow.
simply "wow".
Does this get played on the radio where any of y'all live?
Rock isn't dead but it's too hard to find (unless you listen to RP)

He doesn't breathe the same air as everyone else.... He's so brilliant.   Watching him play is like when I used to watch Bjorn Borg play tennis.... No real outward expression, just perfection and grace.
Very, very nice!
He may have learned his technique at the feet of the master, but his soul is so very much his own. Much like Hendrix and Duane, he never ceases to astonish.
I think Duane's spirit has a lot to do with it. {#Meditate}
How the hell does he do it?
Well this was wa well thought out follow up to Hendrix. Bravo Bill
LOVE this band. Derek Trucks is God.
Holy moly this is soooo good for the ears...
Jimi's Little Wing was terrific, now this here Derek piece is so Excellent!  Cheers
