+Niko Carvajal Its actually the only one I could pick out by ear. If anyone has trouble learning the tuning (I've been playing close to ten years), it's something you should commit to memory. Might as well move the capo around and learn some Mumford & Sons while your at it! lol

The Tallest Man on Earth... at a Tiny Desk.
Enrique Z
Many people disagree, I know but I do think that he's just as talented as Bob Dylan, the circumstances of his life and our world won't make him as famous or be considered a legend like Dylan is but that doesn't mean it's not true. Many talented people whom we have no idea of are as talented as the legends of the past were but we'll never know them because they didn't have the luck to be known.

+Enrique Z the tallest man on earth has released 4 albums so far, two of which are exceptionally great. but what he does isn't original at all. i'm not saying that's a bad thing, but if you're saying he's more talented than dylan you should consider that dylan changed the whole music scene single-handedly, and has released al least 7 (and that's being modest) exceptionally great albums that are considered classics. the first was was released in 1963 and the last one of those 7 in 1997. I personally think Dylan has released at least 15 great albums, and that's without including the bootleg sessions and albums made with the band or other side projects. so though i really enjoy the tallest man on earth and think he's very talented, saying he's more talented than dylan just doesn't make any sense to me. he's better at the guitar (who isn't), but lyrically he doesn't come close. haven't heard a song like visions of johanna, simple twist of fate or desolation row from the tallest man on earth (yet). so though i think the tallest man on earth is great, saying he's more talented than dylan is bollocks. imo you'll have to wait at least thirty years to even dare make a statement like that.
+Tim Durgan of course he is but talent isn't dylans power. Its words, politics and shitty guitar playing.

+Katherine Whiting - fuck 'em. I'm not here to make friends. I consider the people incapable of looking past that to be on the same intellectual level as dogs, since that's how most of them respond. for example, if you raise your voice to a dog that isn't particularly familiar with you, they'll usually mirror that behavior with a violent response, since they don't know any better.
