I didn't realize that you had to be a country player to play a Tele.
I like quite a few of his songs, but he hasn't made an album that I really like. I love his slide style, but he certainly wasn't the only one to turn country and blues licks into rock and roll. Mick Taylor was as responsible for that sound as anyone.
