Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee of Rush discuss the music that is closest to their hearts.
“SHAPES OF THINGS” Jeff Beck, Truth (1968)
This is another song we covered on Feedback. Jeff Beck has a tone like no one else, maybe because he doesn’t play with a pick very much. He also has a very strong left hand and can move the strings almost effortlessly.
He’s still cranking it out today, but he doesn’t put out albums as often as I’d like; he works only when he feels like it. Before Truth, Beck was an integral part of the Yardbirds, and their recording of this song is great. But this version, with Rod Stewart’s voice on top, adds a whole new element to the song.
It sounds tougher, bigger and beefier.
