After seeing Dwight Yoakam last night I feel like I have been to the Tele temple. I have fallen in love with all the Pete Anderson riffs in the Dwight songs and had no idea what to expect seeing Dwight live for the first time. First, Eddie Perez was faithful to the Anderson solos, using the familiar themes as a launching point for his own playing. Having never seen Pete Anderson live, the only tone of Pete's that I am familiar with is his recorded tone, which I really like. Eddie's live tone was completely mind blowing. There were two Black-Faced Deluxe Reverbs on stage with Eddie, and I didn't hear any effects (with the exception of a Tremolo on one song)- but the sound of those Tele's through those cranked DR's was incredible! Watching Eddie play wasn't like "how in the world did he do that" like you get when you watch some incredible players. It was more like, "how in the world does the guy play the perfect note every time?!" which isn't to say that Eddie Perez isn't an absolute monster player, because he is. He went from fast chicken' pickin' to fat twangy honky tonk rhythm- getting different sounds by picking in different places - playing way back on the bridge. He was the consummate showman and looked like he was having a great time. This is the first I've heard of Eddie Perez, but i would definetly pay to see him again. Great show!
