Also, his harmonic sense is fairly modern and frankly better than the majority of those cats (though the steel players are usually pretty 'advanced' harmonically). That's the best 'jazz' I've heard him play.
*I don't play 'hybrid' so I got nothin' for ya Leon - sorry. I'm either all pick or all fingers.
Yes...I agree. Mason's right hand is like a machine .... the relationships keep close proximity ... fit to the strings..
