Same thing last night. At some point it looked like Stu couldn't see his guitar properly, so he was facing the led behind him to get some light longer than usual.

Looking forward to what the 2016 Noodle morphs into!

There's that strumming, it's really morphed so much beyond a Noodle and beyond Foggy Dew...it's longer too, and the transition into Things was drawn out and intertwined for an extra measure or two.


Stu is playing "The Auld Triangle" or as it often known to Bob fans: "The Banks Of The Royal Canal"

Bob recorded this song with The Band during the basement tapes sessions....

As per the melding of the sound into "Things..." I was sure all three shows that I saw this fall that Bob was about to actually sing "The Auld Triangle"....but alas, he did not...But it is still a great intro...as it was originally used as an intro to a play written by Brendan Behan (his brother, Dominic, is the poet Bob does not want to see in DONT LOOK BACK--probably because he has stolen the melody of his song THE PATRIOT GAME and settled it to his own lyrics "WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE")

This song has always been a basement favorite....and I have sung it many, many times with many,many people: "that old triangle goes jingle jangle....all along the banks of the royal canal...."

From ‘Boston 2017 Live Set List’ thread.
Thanks, Balti.

I've been getting into The Dubliners lately, and I was interested to find that they have recorded versions of both The Foggy Dew (the tune Stu used to play at the start of Bob shows) and The Auld Triangle (the tune Stu plays now). Here they are:

The Foggy Dew: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0tmtKiGGGps

The Auld Triangle: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Zb_YaUXcVgo

I'm sure there are loads of other versions out there, but you can't beat a bit of Luke Kelly and Ronnie Drew!


Excellent. Thanks for these links Tim!

The noodle (Auld Triangle) was delivered wi an electric guitar in Boston - is that a new development?

I was there, but didn't really pay it any mind as it's mixed between electric & acoustic for years.
Don't know if it's been electric since Boston...has it?

Stu seems to change it up quite a bit, one of the major Setlist changes witnessed these last few years!

It's not a Static Noodle...more so Dynamic!

Go Stu! Can anyone identify any of the other tunes that Stu has mimicked in Noodle History?


Quote:



I can hear 'The Wild Mountain Thyme' in Stu's Noodle too. Scottish song. Lot's of adaptations and variations on this tune out there.
