...more of an answer quest.

When I talk of Neil Young here, I mean the elecreic Neil Young not the acoustic Neil Young. Particularly on stuff like Weld and similar.

When he plays, it all sounds so wrong, but somehow it works out anyway. Especially in the solos. Anyone want to explain what's going on there theory-wise? Is he just playing in the wrong scales for the mode the song is in or is it something else?

great question! But for some reason it's easily understood w/ me since that's kind of similiar of how I used to play. Not saying I'm as good as him but.... yea! biggrin.gif

I don't have a clue - I'd like to know too, though!

Same thing has gone though my mind. Good example is "Like a Hurricane", probably from Live Rust. I think it is not just one thing, it is a combination of things. I think if I just learn that song, I will understand a lot better. Think I will do that. He had some nice acoustic stuff also.

There might be a bit of a Bob Dylan influence in his singing. Not sure about that. But he does the off key stuff, different from Dylan, but still the off key stuff. Kind of like Dylan, only first drinking a half pint of Scotch, and turning on a Telecaster with a lot of distortion.
