Subject: Stay Close to Me demo?

In reply to: Lothar Pedd 's message, "Buddy on guitar" on 11:50:19 09/20/20 Sun

Yes, he certainly did. He played the same figure as what is on the "demo", which is based around an E chord played up on the twelfth fret with the open strings droning. Buddy also used the technique of playing an E chord on the twelfth fret when he recorded "Mona", at Norm Petty's studios. Of interest with the "Mona" recording is Buddy is also using up strokes when he plays the rhythm, rather than his more usual down-stroke only right hand technique. The Kid could play a lot better than people give him credit for!

The thing that bothers me about the "demo" of "Stay Close" is the voice. It's Buddy's alright, but it sounds like it's been mashed together from different recordings to me. Echo appears and disappears from words; some words sound as though they have been badly spliced together as well. The thing that gives it away is that the guitar doesn't have these same inconsistencies (or "glitches"), and remains somewhat smooth and unchanged all the way through if one ignores the hiss and crackle.
