    Very nice vid. Loved the bit where he went into his house on fire and got Trigger and a lb of weed. :D

    Great video and story!
    Leon Russell was the first to sign "Trigger" ...another musical legend.

    That strap. It only attaches to the lower end of the soundhole, correct? So if Willie doesn't have a hand on Trigger at all times, it will tumble forward and be left hanging facing him.

    It doesn't seem like it could attach anywhere else...

    What a piece of junk. We should take up a collection and get him a new one.

    I'm glad he was able to save that bag of weed, too.
