What style of music do I play on a Tele?
jwguitar, always fantastic listening to youNice playing OP.
I do this:
John 5 is an amazing guitarist. That’s a great video!I no longer have a Tele but i did .. It got stolen and when i went to remedy the loss i fell in love with a G&L S500. There is a tele in my future, but i am not in a hurry .o0( .. Yet )
I did have my Tele, the guitar never bound me to a specific genre. Which I found, at once, to be surprisingly odd because that is how that guitar was always stereotyped by friends and acquaintances and by the artists i saw playing them - Roy Buchanan, Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, Muddy Waters, Steve Cropper, Albert Lee, Jim Root. Quite simply, the Tele is a real workhorse and a great guitar to have in your arsenal
In recent years, my impression of the Tele has been significantly broadened with the advent of John 5. Though his music isnt exactly my "type," i am ever watchful of technique - and DAMN that guy - to use the vernacular of a student - "has mad skillz." John 5 demonstrated unequivocally to me that the Telecaster is quite possibly the most versatile instrument out there
ADDENDA: if somehow John 5 has flown in under your radar, I suggest that you check him out. The man is Blessed with a vast repertoire of techniques
