When I listen to Tull, I am aware that many of Jethro Tull songs and recordings incorporate unusual time-signatures and key changes within a particular number. They don't seem to heavily rely on the the standard 4/4 or half-time, like many rock bands of the period. So to play like Martin Barre, you have to move away from the standard 4/4 and reach out to the unusual time signatures. In a way it's somewhat related to Jazz music with intricate and difficult passages being the norm.

Saw them in Frankfurt in 73. Anderson leapt from the side of the stage, landed on one foot and put his flute right on the tip of Barre's nose. They were outstanding.

Always like the tone and timbre of Ian Anderson acoustic sound during the 70's Tull era. What affordable guitars could replicate this today?

The Outro jam right at the end I think it’s a brick sounds very much like Jeff Becks Scatterbrain
