“Anji” (or “Angi”, “Angie” or “On gee”) is an acoustic fingerstyle guitar piece composed and recorded by noted folk guitarist Davy Graham in 1961 and originally released as part of his EP debut 3/4 AD. The piece is one of the most well-known acoustic blues-folk guitar pieces ever composed, with many notable artists covering it, such as Bert Jansch (included on his first self titled album in 1965, renamed as Angie), Simon and Garfunkel (on their Sounds of Silence album) and Harry Sacksioni. Anji is in the key of A minor (often used with a capo) and is notable for its trademark descending bassline. Parts of the tune were sampled for the Chumbawamba track “Jacob’s Ladder” from their album Readymades and the anti-war single “Jacob’s Ladder (Not In My Name)“. Read on...
