    It's not the gretsch this time, but hey, just in time for tele Tuesday!

    I've been working on some of my fast country stuff. Here's the latest, over a backing track:

    Sounds great! Is that a B-bender on the Tele?

    Yea, it's a hipshot B bender, but I'm not using it on this vid. Doesn't work very well when you are seated.

    Yea. If it's recorded these days, it's pretty much always the Kemper. That was a profile of a Divided by 13 something or other. Sounded cool to me, although I have no idea what that amp is.

    Thanks for the kind words guys!

    Don't you just love it when something makes you smile, tap your feet and enjoy class?
    Of all the video clips I have seen on GT this must rank among the most "smile-able!!
    I absolutely LOVED this.
    It is Albert Lee personified and I know no better compliment than to say that! Absolutely mega spot-on jklotz, let's have more - when and as you are in a position to deliver dear chap.
    Wonderful.

    Comparing me to Albert Lee would be like comparing lightening to a lightening bug! He is one of my favorites (along with Danny Gatton, Brent Mason, Vince Gill, among others). Those guys can play circles around me! That may just be the biggest compliment I've ever gotten in regards to guitar, even if I don't deserve it.

    Thanks so much for the compliments! Much appreciated.

    All I got say about that is, if you like roots music, not much that you can't do if you have a tele and a Gretsch! And the cool part is you don't have to spend a lot of money to get a good tele.

    I keep saying I'm going to frankenstein a tele one of these days, but I actually love decking the bridge of a strat and digging in on those in-between positions on the pickup selector. You're right about a Gretsch: plenty of twang for stuff like this.
