Take One Away played on a 1950 – Gibson J200
An Americana track with a tinge of British landscape, this song tackles the longing to be on the road and the wish to return home.
It’s a simple strummed track with a few melodies embedded in the chords. It requires a big sounding guitar so my eye went straight to the J200. Maple all round it sounds boxy like a railroad car, crisp and woody with haunting back tones. Think Nashville skyline.
Emmylou Harris wont be seen without one, certainly a guitar that I’d love to have in my arsenal. It really suits this song and was a dream to play.
