Abstract: A simplified analytic description is used to understand recent results of largescale numerical simulations of resonant absorption and to disentangle the basic physics. It is shown that very efficient absorption takes place at frequencies where a discrete external kink and an Alfven continuum mode merge into a modified external kink mode. The relation between this 'hybrid' mode and 'pure' continuum or discrete spectrum modes is discussed.
