Q

What is your favourite Leonard Cohen song?


Anne McCue responded on 12/21/2011
A

I love 'Who By Fire' but I think that 'Halleluiah' is one of the greatest songs ever written. I've heard Leonard sing it and also Jeff Buckley, k.d. lang (live) and Brandi Carlile (live) all did a fantastic job. k.d.'s recorded version is a bit too sedate. Leonard's live version was incredible...

Q

Hi Anne. Do you have a favourite guitar and why is it your favourite? Cheers, David.

A

My Les Paul used to be my favourite, but now I lean more towards my telecaster. It's got Humbuckers so is more versatile than your average tele, and I tend to go for a thicker tone... Also, I've had my Maton acoustic for 20 plus years and love her too! Cheers!

Q

Hi Anne! Do you think you might play in Seattle again? I really enjoyed it last time.

I most certainly will, I'd like to play at Tractor Tavern or better still, the Paramount Theater!

Q

When you come to Houston, The Mucky Duck or Under the Volcano would be some great venues to play, and there's always Dan Electro's, where I saw you this past year.
And don't forget to come to Cactus M

Hey cool, thanks for reminding me about the venues there. I'm definitely in Texas for SXSW so will try and get gigs in all the towns.
Cheers!

I hope so, it's been a long time! Maybe if I plane a long drive from nashville to L.A. I could play along the way! I'll let you know. Thanks!

Q

Hi Anne, what key do you usually have your lapsteel tuned to? I will probably see you tonite at uncle slaytons in louisville, I hope you will make it a regular stop! I love your work, C ya tonite!

My lapsteel is tuned to open D - DADF#AD. But lately I've been playing my guitar as a lap steel in normal tuning... Sounds more Hawaiian... Cheers!
