When I'm playing my cover of Piano Man I usually play the harmonica intro slightly fancier than the original, like BJ sometimes does it live. On all of the other harmonica "bridges" in verses and between the chorus and verse, I also do it the way he does it live, slightly longer. I was wondering if anyone knew why he does it that way live (0:55 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcYSSYnf_l8
) compared to the way he did it in the original version (0:46 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaUyJyPekJE
)? I definitely like the live way better, as well as the intro in the live video as opposed to the original one. It seems that recently Billy has been doing the original, slightly shorter into more, however.
