    Love it. Let Me Roll It has always been one of my favorites as well, another great version. Thanks for posting!

    P.S.- Gotta wonder what /13 Rusty is using here. Is that a small box RSA 31 or is it not an RSA at all?

    I have been listening to my old Wings and solo Paul records. Some of the guitar tones are very good throughout his post Beatles catalog. I really like Jimmy McCulloch's tone around the Venus and Mars time period. Basically, I am always suprised when I listen to this stuff at the quality of the tones - I guess I never really think off the top of my head of Wings as a place to find good guitar tone and parts. But it is certainly in there and enjoyable!

    Great song. Flip side of Band On The Run. I must of played both of these songs a million times on my old turntable.

    Argueably, I find McCartney' Wings period records to be great and IMHO better than any of his solo, non-band records.

    Paul was on fire from his first solo album, McCartney, through Venus and Mars, with Wings. Band on the Run is a masterpiece. One of my favorite songs to play at the moment is "Let Me Roll It". But man, did he fall off the map for me big time after that.

    Ah, man. So good.

    Rusty has quite a lot of gain going on. I wonder if he's hitting the amp with a pedal?

    Looks like a diagonal 2x12 to me rather than the 2x12f.

    JRT 9/15... he switched over to them about a year or two ago.
    31S's have an additional master volume knob, and no half power/power tube switch.

    @roknfnrol - Probably used a Cornish P-2 or G-2 for the high gain parts... that's definitely not the amp alone.

    I just watched a Jools Holland piece from a few years ago and he was using the 2x12f at that point. Great tone, I'll try to find the YouTube link. I actually prefer this tone to his current tone, although it's all good...

    Edit-

    I'm a guitarist, but for me Abe just kicks it. That guy puts 110% behind every groove!

    Wow, great clip. What an odd song that is--like some of the Beatles material, it sounds like it was written much later than it was. And yeah, phenomenal guitar playing there, too. He's just in complete control there.

    Agreed. I think Rusty's tone was definitely the best when he used RSAs or back when he used FTRs (Driving Rain tour)... more articulate. Seems kinda' odd that he's not using his own amp model anymore... :confused:
