So great... Thanks!
Marty Stuart's the Liberace of country music but I love him.
I've lsitened to this clip several times now and it just gets better and better. Awesome!
Yah, the bender was seamless inthe song, very nice.
Nice. Most players make a big show of using the bender, rather than blending it into the solo like this - and like a good pedal steel player would.
Marty and Clarence both sound great. Thanks for posting.
Yeah, he's smooth!
Nice. Check out this one:
I'm a huge Marty Stuart fan. For another cool B and G bender approach I really like Jimmy Olander.
Luv it ...
that's just freaking great!
thanks for the reminder!
This is real different, but still great by Marty, his version of 'High on a Mountain top".
If you don't want the blues intro, the 2nd part starts at 4:00.
I think Marty might have the original paisley B-Bender from the late Clarence White.
He's the real deal, the hair and clothes are fun stuff that's icing on the cake.
Yes indeed, thanks.
That's some really fine playing. I had trouble looking away though. Had never seen him in a Video and man, is he weird.
man, that was wonderful- thanks for sharing!!
It's stuff like this that confirm my thoughts of buying a cheap MIM tele and installing a B-bender.
And....Marty is a ripper, love the hair and clothes and the way he was hamming it up for the camera!
Thanks for posting.
That's nice playing, I also noticed he has Scruggs tuners as well. I found this picture of his guitar online and in addition to the B-Bender, there is what looks like a palm controlled E-Bender. Pretty nice setup.
(Edit: OK, I had no idea that this was Clarence White's original Bender Tele, awesome!)
Understatement of the thread ! I'm not a country guy, but man that was some cookin' tele music that got my blood pumpin' Thanks for posting Jim -- my exposure to B benders at first was Jimmy Page's 'riff' in the song Radioactive ... not even close to the finess of Marty Stuart.
I always wanted to be able to play like that. Good stuff.
