Derek Bailey Lyrics

You know the feeling of something half remembered
Of something that never happened, yet you recall it well
You know the feeling of recognizing someone
That you've never met as far as you could tell, well

Laura is the face in the misty light
Footsteps that you hear down the hall
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall
And you see Laura on the train that is passing through
Those eyes, how familiar they seem
She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura but she's only a dream

I gotchu.
on guitar you can voice this with a capo on the first fret or (just tune your strings up a half step) :

High E: 13
B string 11
G string : open (capo)
D string: open (capo 1st fret)
A string : 10th fret
Low E: Open F (capo on 1st fret)

In order of the notes played: Low F (go an octave up) G Eb Ab (go another octave up) Bb F

So from bottom to top thats: F Eb G Ab Bb F

chord is Fm11 with the 9th and the 7th

Franciscus Rebro

I'm hearing a minor 11 chord. The root note seems to be in between E and F (unless it's my piano that's not quite in tune). Say root E, then up a ninth to F#, down a major third to D, up a fourth to G, up a ninth to A, up a fifth to E.

E - F# - D - G - A - E

Or with root F:
F - G - Eb - Ab - Bb - F

Some of those notes are harmonics, too.

Those 5 minutes are most likely the clearest evidence of his genius I've ever heard.

terrible ideas

That sucked


absolutely . you took the words right out of me


Yes. I couldn't agree more. Those harmonics are gorgeous - moody and so well placed among the chords and little single note runs.

John Marvin Scott

Such an unbelievable artist. One of my biggest inspirations right now for sure.

Ron Jeremy

Seeing people appreciate this gives me faith for the future of music

Mr. Barlow

Art - but not music.

Greg Arnold

Pat Metheny said once he learned more about music in one afternoon with Derrick Bailey than any time in his life 👍🏾


Well, I've just listened to this for about the fifth time(in the past 5 weeks).
Its definitely a performance worth recommending a Derek Bailey neophyte to check out,
The gamut of Bailey's techniques and moods are beautifully on display. His genius, that is, as pipityri pointed out.
