The bells in the church tower chime, so it's time to grab our Telecasters and talk about Jeff Buckley.
Specifically, it's time for a deep dive into Buckley's "Last Goodbye," one of the centerpiece songs on his sole studio album, Grace. There'll be spacious drums, grand basslines, spiraling string parts, alternative guitar tunings, and of course, loads of beautiful singing.
Artist: Jeff Buckley
Album: Grace (1994)
Written by: Jeff Buckley
OUTRO SOLOIST: Dan Nervo
Dan plays guitar all around the San Francisco Bay Area in bands like Neon Velvet, and also teaches private guitar lessons - in fact, he taught Kirk some of the guitar parts for "Last Goodbye" back in the day.
