There are 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, as Paul Simon advises. We think there are at least as many to cover a song. This one is fun for us because the chord changes are so interesting and they beg for flourishes. It’s fun to hear Ian mix it up with percussion while Tim really anchors the almost creepy changes in a bluesy way. And, of course, Caryn belts it out with zeal.
Watch how at around 3:00 Ian laughs out loud as he and Adam spontaneously feel the need to fill in with the same triplet. That’s one of at least 50 ways it’s fun to play in the band.
