Words and Music

This haunting tune, transcribed from Across the Borderline, showcases some of Willie Nelson’s dynamic lead work on his nylon-string guitar.  He opens the song with a somewhat Spanish sounding melody, harmonicized in thirds, followed by some bluesy blending.  The solo break restates the original solo but with a few variations, the most notable of which is his Django-esque use of tremolo picking.
