    Yes! So good. He was great at using the quirks of the psg E9 tuning to do cool twists like the end of that solo. Stuff like the kick off to this simple turnaround:



    It's the easier part of that break to play but it stands out so well.

    Yep its cool the things that just the limitations (maybe the wrong word) of the instrument lead you to if you're willing to explore.

    Fun/dorky fact about his guitar, he ended up tuning his 2nd string to C# and using the knee lever to raise up to D and D#, instead of the other way around.

    Now this is my kinda pedal talk!

    Yeah I think I knew that he had some setup quirks that added to his personality on the instrument. Did he have a D or G on top of the C6 neck?

    That's a good question, I'm not sure and couldn't find much info on his C6 copedent. He seemed to change things up on his tuning as the guitars progressed, probably did both at some point. It's cool how the guys who came up with the instrument while it was being developed would do their own thing and adapt depending on what the guitars were capable of.

    I briefly tried the high G on C6 but stick with a D now. It seems to make more sense, since that functions like the top two strings on E9.

    I used to see Buddy a lot when he replaced Jerry in the NRPS. Besides Buddy and David Nelson, who else is in the NRPS these days?

    Don’t know if any of you follow Peter Stroud on FB/IG, but for his 60th Sheryl Crow arranged for him to play the gig that night using Duane Allman’s Gold Top. Pretty damned cool...

    That's cool. He's a Southerner too. I'm sure that meant a lot to him.

    I approve of the way that estate is getting that guitar into players' hands. It's a great way to honor Duane's legacy.

    I follow the Big House museum in Macon on FB, they shared that post. They let all kinds of folks play the goldtop, it's a really cool thing for them to do.

    The only thing that turns me on at the Eastwood site is the Senn baritone

    It's been ages since I bought a pedal, but I pulled the trigger today.

    I've been wanting a character preamp style pedal for recording bass. This particular one has some interesting features. It passes through a clean signal at unity gain, and you can dial in the amp sim character independently. It has a little bit of compression going on too.

    I think I'll dig it for bass, but it may also come in handy for electric guitar. I have a Rockett Archer on my board at the moment, mostly for a mid-focused dirty boost for solos. This could easily serve the same function, as could my old DLS v2.

    I had $165 in Reverb Bucks and the seller accepted my offer of $159 :D

    It just makes me sad seeing old instruments being used like this when they could be living in peace in Jim Irsay's office.

    I almost bought one, but I couldn't get a straight answer about whether the quality of the Eastwoods was worth it. I even had a couple of exchanges with Jeff and didn't come across convinced.

    That's my real hesitation too. I figure I'd probably be happier getting a conversion neck and having my guy set one up for me.

    Would much rather have a Reverend Pete Anderson Bari.

    They have a trem version... I can't recall a time I've heard a Baritone with trem being used. I always think I like the idea of having vibrato units on guitars... But then I don't really feel like I need them.
