Notes
This album recorded durring the Wailers 1978 world
tour features the guitar sytlings of three great guitarists,
namely Junior Marvin, Al Anderson, and of course Bob Marley.
On one hand this album is filled with difficult bass/guitar
riff sycopation that almost defies transcription. On the other
hand the general chord progression of many of the songs are quite
simple. What follows are the chords played by Bob throughout the
songs. Some songs only have one or two guitar chords, however
due to the sycopated riffs of the lead guitars the songs stay
musicallly interesting.
