How to Play Baker Street Like Nic Jones pt.2
So as promised, here's a quick look at the right hand and chords used in my version of Rafferty's classic Baker Street written in 1977, alternatively Canadee IO which provides the Nic Jones song from which I learned the right hand technique of flicking the the strings with the index finger was released on his classic Penguin Eggs in 1973. I use this style if guitar playing in combination with Rafftery's superb chords and lyrics. I've also (perhaps prudently) steered clear of his original introduction and cut straight to the chase with the verse, chorus and bridge.
This is a great song and one that's crept into my live set having started out as an ad hoc arrangement and fun piece to play. It seems you can't hold back song writing as good as this. I hope you can enjoy playing ut as much as I do.
