Apparently he was in the audience and the singer handed him his guitar. No pick.
It’s Chris Cain. The man is a national treasure and one of the best to ever do it. I’d hate to be the guy who handed him the guitar and have to follow that. It’d definitely be time for a set break. Man, I love Chris Cain. I really hope to see him live some day.
I checked out videos of the guitar's owner. He's really good too. Kind of similar.
He’s not bad. Pretty much just BB licks and phrasing in there. Plays it pretty safe. But not bad at all.
Cain got a much different tone as he always seems to. Chris always has such powerful tone. Plays with so much more fire and desperation and fluency.
A blues club with a full house. Cool.
edit: and yes Chris Cain is great.
One of the best in my book, and a treat to see/hear live : )
I used to see him pretty regularly in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s in small clubs around Silicon Valley. He was really hit or miss back then because of his drinking. I’m so glad he got ahead of that - I saw him 20 years after those times and he was playing the best I’ve ever seen him.
His old rig in those days was a 335 and a brown Super. Just ridiculous tone.
