Happy Fourth!! Truetone Lounge with Steve Wariner



Steve Wariner’s crazy musical odyssey is filled with characters with names like Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Reggie Young, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Mark O'Connor and many others that are either titans or demigods of the music world. In our Truetone Lounge interview, Steve discusses all of the musical giants above, while also taking us from his early years in Indiana, all the way to commercial and artistic success all over the world. Along the way, we cover his mentorship by Chet Atkins, and the struggles he faced to have the opportunity to play on his own albums under the then current “Nashville” studio system. Wariner then takes a moment to give credit to the great Reggie Young, who played additional guitar parts on many of his albums through the years, and how he was greatly influenced by both his playing and tone. He then breaks down the intro and guitar solo to his hit single “Lynda,” showing us how he came up with the solo, and how it works over the song's chord changes. Steve then talks gear, focusing on his Glaser built Strat, red Glaser Bender guitar, 1954 Telecaster, and some of his favorite effects and amplifiers.


Another great interview. I've heard about some of this years ago from Terry Ryan, the co-writer of the song "I'm Already Taken". Did some gigs with Terry before he moved to Nashville and eventually worked for Gibson. Another guy I know was Steve's road tech for a while. I used to see Alan Love , his ex-steel guitarist playing before he moved to Nashville.
