1 cheesy_rice 3 months ago Like the rest of you I've listened to the song The Have Nots hundreds of times over the years. Vinyl, cassette, CD, mp3, boombox, Hi-Fi, headphones, in a car, etc... all the various ways and I can't believe I never noticed something. The song fades but also has an ending (one measure of the Johnny B. Goode thing in A, then the G chord with a tat-tat-tat on the drums and then end on E). I'm not sure I've ever noticed another song that fades but also has a definite finish. I know this isn't "important" or Earth shattering. I just find it interesting.I've been working with a guy I know to get this song written into Guitar Pro (staff and tab) and I was listening to the fade out to catch any "track 2" licks. There are several that repeat throughout the song but with some slight differences. Anyway, that's when I heard the true ending for the first time. Billy - Any memory of why the song was finalized with a fade out even though it has an ending? Sorry if this is a silly question.
