      I seriously think someone picked 4 random names out of a very large hat and said let’s make a song they all can be on. That was random as sh*t and awesome.

    Tryin to make some sense of my New Telecaster...(always have wanted me one),... situation called fer a Tele to record some tracks in session...
    Thought mebbe I'd look to Th Expert, fer some guidance...Help me, Roy!
    Video won't lemme embed it, so let's us try this here workaround...

    Great! Now, I feel even dumber than before, if that's technically, medically even possible.......

    Anyhoo, here's a few candid snaps of one of my newest additions to th guitfiddle family:

    Notice, she still gots th 'Minnie Pearl' tag alla hangin offa her, likely will fer some time...
    (An, YES; I know I'm strange...)

    Feels summat foreign, after an Entire Lifetime of Stratocasters, but mebbe in a Good Way...I dunno, jus yet...

    Time will tell...who th Hail am I to second guess McKinley Morganfield, an Keef, after all????

    Reckon I jus need to learn my dang ol self a whole whoppin buncha Tele Fu...

    It worked fer th tracks in question, but there's still bout eleventeen hunnert layers of nuance, an capabilities to be discovered, by my best reckonin...

    Wish me luck, yall...

    Couldn't help but post some gratuitous shots of my (also new) 2SB Strat; she's also a Master Blaster, n feels jus right, when I close my eyes, curl up my toes, an let er RIP...

    Balance, I reckon, is important, in one's Life lol

    Some New Stuff can be good, averse as I am to change, but in th Long Run, I most often tend to dance with th one what brung me... After 40+ years of Castin Strats, even my feeble mind starts to sense a pattern...

    New Strat definitely sounds proper*, when I put some flesh to th nickel an wood...jus gotta age her in, like so, jus so's she'll match th general decor, an vibe...

    Ahhh...There...
    That's all kinda better...
    *Strats should sound like Strats, IMO... nuthin more, certainly nuthin less...

      Yup, I remember seein my first Streamliner; hail, we still had a few local freights what was steam, when I was a youngun..
      Puttin a penny on th tracks was always prerogative, after one hiked, or biked alla th way to Henrietta Depot..
      Platform had posts up so close to th train tracks, they had grabirons bolted to em, so th fast passenger trains wouldn't suck ya up underneath em, my Ma said (She grew up there, from th '30's)

      ...Never lent much creadence to th Vacuum Train Effect, til one day, I was alla hangin out at Henrietta Depot, an a BN Streamlined passenger train come through, rollin like thunder, an highballin like a banshee.
      Now, me, bein jus a simple country boy, was as close to th dang dang rails as one could be, without standin on em...
      An, yup, I had to grab me some grabiron, or it'd a sucked me right offa that platform, an into th ginormous meat grinder...
      Always have LOVED me some trains...

      Love this - Joe came so close to taking himself out of the game, but it's great that he cleaned up and still with us. And man, he's still GOT IT in spades.

    Sorry, but if you don't like this, we're not friends. Steve Winwood is the epitome of cool.

    On second thought, if you don't like this, we're not friends and I'm not sorry.

      Blind Faith is one of my very favorite all time bands: Cream is #1. Then 2a ABB, 2b Blind Faith. #3 Derek and the Dominoes. Any clues to how I roll here?

      Well here is a first. Ozzy has released a song about the dangers of drug abuse. And for a kicker Slash is playing guitar on it.

        I recognized the name Jack Pearson right away, having been properly educated by Mr. Bones - some nice solo slide work on a very distinguished guitar.

          Wowser 2! He made it look so easy and effortless I said to myself, "I could do that." Then I took a reality check and went back to picking what I pick best, my nose! ;-)

        To all the musically minded brothers in here. Saw a documentary on Rick Kelly the guitar builder and his shop, Carmine Street Guitars. If you can find it, check it out. He uses wood from 100yr. old torn down New York buildings. Man, some damn nice work. Mr. Bones he has a soft spot for teles.

          Lol thanks fer th Love, Brother!
          I gots jus one Tele, recently acquired, as I approach 60...luvvin it, so fer, tryin to git in touch with my inner Buck Owens!
          OTH, my fontanelle (soft spot) has fer half a Century leaned t'wards Stratocasters; I have ~ 25~30 of em, any given time...
          Now, if only I could play em...

        In the video linked by ComfortablyNumb, Jack Pearson references Wes Montgomery. When I lived in Indianapolis about 30 years ago, there was a jazz club called The Place to Start a few miles from my apartment. On weeknights when they mostly had local acts, it was easy to get a table. I used to go hang out, eat fried food and listen to music - usually by myself because my friends thought it was a sketchy neighborhood. That same neighborhood was where Wes Montgomery used to play.

        Even though Wes had been dead over 20 years, he was still remembered as a legend and some of the local guitarists would shout "Wes!" at the end of every song they played. One guy who had known him told the story that Wes was completely self taught from listening to other musicians and trying to copy their sound, but without any musical education or formal training he ended up developing his own completely unique style in the process. But it took years - working manual labor all day and staying up all night playing guitar. Anyhow, that's the way I remember it.

        That old dive closed right around the same time I moved away, but within a couple years it was reopened under new management as a more upscale place called The Jazz Kitchen.

          Funny you brought that up. I was quite impressed how JP transitioned from blues to a spot on Wes Montgomery. I was introduced (musically, not personally!) to Wes back in the 70's by one of my grandfathers who was a big fan.

        So... yes... I do actually listen to myself. 😂 Here’s one of my tunes that was a Billboard hit in the smooth jazz genre:

          Right on! I'd love to catch a live show if you are ever in SoCal or if I happen to be up in your area at the right time. Thanks for sharing.

          Thanks radshop and Mr. Bones! I appreciate that.

        Simply a masterpiece of music. I have been on a heavy Floyd kick as of late. Animals always makes me feel great. I could listen to this album all day, everyday.

          Coincidentally, a friend is recording a cover of that song, and asked me to lay down some sax. Great song!!

        And now some good clean fun from Nokie Edwards.

        This might seem like a strange comparison, but it reminds me of Keith Richards. I only saw the Stones live once - Voodoo Lounge at the Hoosier Dome in 1994. While Jagger ran sideline to sideline nonstop for a few hours, Keith never moved. He stood there smoking, and then sort of realized it was time for him to play. So he put his cig on the headstock and played amazing riffs while appearing to be in a coma, then woke up and stated smoking again.

        That effortless talent is what this reminds me of.

          Thanks to Mr. Bones I have a new hobby... finding every Jack Pearson video I can. I've considered Eric Johnson the most complete and technically proficient guitarist I ever heard. But he might drop to second place.
