    I've seen them both in action, and I don't know which one shows less emotion when performing.....

    After giving it much thought, I'd have to concur.

    The Trabant Car_L is a total dirivative of the Trabant 500 Car! Derek is unique, he isn't ripping off other slide players!

    Bah zing!

    Seriously though, Derek goes into some sort of slide-god trance when he gets to jamming. Personally, I think it's cool as hell that he's that in the zone, but yea, not exactly a charismatic stage presence.

    In his defense, when I play slide I pretty much lock up tensely too. I think it has to do with needing to concentrate on hearing yourself with the band. You can't rely on muscle memory to land in pitch, you need to hear it. So for me it's a concentration thing -like walking and chewing gum..... :p

    Dickey Betts gets into it and Duane Allman did too a lot of times. The video from the Fillmore East in 1970 is pretty mellow but much more lively than Derek. If you guys catch the Atlanta Pop Festival video that is currently floating around on Facebook you'll see Duane was very active! Also the Love Valley footage at the end of Mountain Jam Duane jumps about 5 feet in the air!

    it seems like derek t. gets nearly infinite m.p.n.
    --- that's a standard, universal acronym for mileage-per-note, for any beginners, here ---
    because, in fact, he plays with such incredibly concentrated, musical & deep emotion.

    truth, there.

    when it comes to feeling/gauging musical emojo,
    it might be better to trust yer ears & heart over yer sketchy, encrusted eyeballs.
    ha!

    Hahahahaha!


    A+ thread!


    I remember seeing a few of these abandoned just about anywhere in what used to be East Germany in the very early 90's.

    I wonder how _______________ would fare against a 2CV?

    Man, that is an early one--and with a hand crank! I lived in Paris in the 60's, and the 2CVs of that time were almost space age compared to that one.

    Hitched a few rides in 2CV's. Good times!
