.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks unintentional, unimpressive or extremely bad notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.


Regardless of not possessing the most technically impressive instrument, Van Zandt had a pleasant baritone voice with style and emotion.
His best singing was usually found on melancholic ballads, where he really poured his heart to the singing.

His ballads are great, but the vocals on the studio version of "Free Bird" are an exception...

Just the opening lines mostly. After those, he gets better.

Some noteworthy lows in this song, particularly at the very end (plus some killer slide guitar). One of their great, but lesser known songs.
