    Goofing around this morning with my new deck and was going for a little different sound. Trying to get that Roy Buchanan vibe.

    Guitar was a Fender Rosewood tele (Harrison guitar) on the bridge pickup with REAL old strings.

    So what do you think?

    Hi Gary -

    I definitely hear the Roy twang and whine. Very nice tone!

    Thanks Greg, I got to thinking about Roy yesterday when my MP3 player finally hit one of his tracks. The man definately had his own style and sound!

    Yeah, it was because of him that I got into Tele's. I loved the way he could make his guitar whine and sing. He was a great player!

    Yup he was a great player!

    Growing up in Bakersfield in the 60's I was exposed to a lot of hot Tele Twangers, Don Rich, Gene Moles and a host of others. Every night at 5pm you had the best of Bakersfield on TV. Ah to be young again.......

    Awesome, Gary!!! Dang that Tele's got some bite! It's a nice match for your amp. Mighty tasty playing as well. :)

    Thanks Norm, yeah you gotta love a Tele. They are so fun to pick.

    BTW, there is NO amp on that clip. I recorded it this morning at about 5am using my old Rock Chameleon. It can get a few decent tones.

    No match for a real amp though. I have to be family friendly at times.

    BTW, Check out my kid playing against this same backing track....
