    Country Jazz ' Hot Guitar Rag' George Barnes.
    TK Smith Tele. This is the bridge pickup.

    Been working on the George Barnes Country Jazz album. It's really helping me.
    As always, I recorded the backing track myself. If anybody wants it, just shoot me an email. It's a challenging song to play and a good workout as simple as it seems.



    Thank you for listening! Appreciate it.

    Fabulous. I saw TK play his Tele with hi s own pickups in it at a festival about 20 years ago and I thought it was the best sounding Tele I'd ever heard. I love the tone you get from yours. Terrific playing too.

    Cheers! Thank You!

    Thank you Jim! Appreciate that! Your own as well. I saw TK Play with Big Sandy in LA about 30 years ago. He was playing an archtop, but his tone was still in the same vein. He has really got super chops and great tone. Inspiring stuff. I am constantly trying to steal riff ideas from his SRB material.

    Thanks for listening!

    Cheers!!

    Love the tele twang! Not usually a country music fan, but the simple rhythm and leads drew me in...good job!

    This is so cool, great job. I love George Barnes, such a fiery and swinging' player. Congrats on taking on the music of one of the masters.
