@farmerman,
The video wont start . It just displays a notice saying "This Video contains content from UMG, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds".

Yep. Gotta love that intro...how do people write songs anyway ? So many different tunes .

I got the same message for Canada. Try this one, it works in Canada, at least.

Cat Stevens - Morning Has Broken

The piano dominates this piece but listen to the beautiful rhythm carried by the guitar...its the rhythm that makes it seem like morning .

@Setanta,
Chet Atkins and Knopfler with a Beatles song as an instrumental.

I have that Chieftans Album its best played at about 150 decibels. I think its the one where they do the Ending Theme from "Waking Ned Divine". The only cut I dont care for is the one with Sting.

White racism wasn't a problem in Jim Crow Alabama? (For the record, I'm a Texan. It was just as bad in my state.) What a joke! Please read this article. Don't worry, a conservative wrote it.

@wmwcjr,
I don't think anyone's claiming that no one was/is a racist in Alabama. Skynyrd just took exception as it seemed Young was claiming they all were.

FYI, the song in question.

I have known many American southerners who took offense at Mr. Young's song, for two reasons. The first was the implication that racism was a uniquely southern problem. The race riots in American cities in that time period give the lie to that notion. The second is the hypocrisy implicit in Mr. Young's song given the way Canadians had treated, and were still treating their aboriginal population at that time--witness the residential schools for First Nations' children.

Leaving that aside, i think this early song of Mr. Young's is a better example of his guitar work.
