“Keep Your Distance” from 1991’s Rumour and Sigh has become a Celtic folk-rock classic over the years having been covered by Julie and Buddy Miller and Patty Lovelace among others. Starting in the key of E major with a pick and fingers intro and adding mandolin and bagpipes along the way, the song showcases Thompson’s slightly overdriven Strat tone and his sublime baritone voice . The solo comes in at 2:49 with bagpipe inspired double-stop bends and proceeds to showcase both a Celtic and a Nashville influence.
