 “The Needle and the Damage  Done”, Neil Young seems to fine notes where others only see frets. What’s his secret?He says it comes from “mindlessly playing” and taking the approach that “thinking is the worst thing for writing a song”

This song looks pretty easy to play on paper, but for me it going to require some time.I think it has a lot to offer and  will be worth practicing.

The first  think I noticed was the ca= 104. I hadn’t seen that term before, “ca” stands for circa, meaning approximately 104.

Milk- Blood also caught my eye. The song is about drugs and the death of one of his friends. Someone on the internet said  in an interview Neil says milk-blood is the practice of “selling ones blood to buy drugs“. I have seem the term used in two or three other drug related ways.
