Tele/Spaghetti Western instrumentals?

Hey Guys,

Lately, I am really interested in the country/Telecaster instrumentals. I have been listening to alot of Brad Paisley's instrumentals such as Eastwood, Onryo, and Throttleneck I am also listening to Redd Valkaert's Tube'n. Are there any other songs/artists I should be checking out for their Telecaster/ old spaghetti western instrumental sound? (Tele/banjo sound)? I have also been listening to Danny Gatton and Roy Buchanan's stuff as well lately.

Tele Instrumental music? I will check out anything you guys can through at me.

Thank you for your help and energy.

Spencer

Beat me to it. Amazing player. I know it's not instrumental stuff, but his work with the Little Willies is great.

Most of the true spaghetti western stuff is done with a baritone guitar. Nothing against a tele and an octave pedal, but its not quite the same.

Timbertea,

I had no idea. Thank you for letting me know. :)
You have given me something to think about and wrap my head around. And something else now on my wishlist.

Thank you for enlightening me.

Is the tuning changed then for those types of songs?

I love listening to early Morricone stuff, but I've read that's a Jaguar...

No tele involved ( although there is a strat in the back), one of my fav bands. Not all spaghetti western but quite a bit..

Federale..

Pretty cool but I think I may get bored if they played a 40 minute set of the Ennio sounding stuff.

Richard Bennett (Mark Knopfler's co guitarist) has a great CD called Themes From a Rainy Decade. Mostly strat but beautiful Hank Marvin type tones with a southwestern sound on alot of the tunes

If you like 60s spag western and theme songs check out 'Man from Ravcon' facebook page it will lead you to some good stuff to listen to. the song " the jetsetters' was stuck in my mind for days. I ran across his stuff on offset guitar forum.

Morricone's guitars

There is some information about the guitarists in Ennio Morricone's spaghetti western stuff.
They really used any guitar available, from acoustic with pickups, to classical with a microphone to straight electric.
Pino Rucher was one of the credited studio guitar players with Morricone and here a more recent recording guitarist with Morricone plays Rucher's guitar, the one used in some of those old recording sessions.

Oh cool! Thanks for posting this.

I like how they didn't really bother tuning the guitar for the last bit of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Wouldn't work any other way.

The list of Morricone's guitar players includes: Pino Rucher, Bruno Battisti D'Amario, Alessandro Alessandroni, Enrico Ciacci.
There was a legal dispute a while ago over who played what.
Three of those guitar players (and Ennio Morricone himself) can be heard talking guitar, going down memory lane and playing something here:

Morricone and Sergio Leone (the director) say it all started with this arrangement of Woody Guthrie's Pastures of Plenty made by Morricone.

Not speaking to any particular songs, but baritone guitars in general: typically, the string pairs are tuned the same as a standard guitar (pairs of fourths, except for third and second string pair which is a major third apart) - only lower in pitch. Probably the most common baritone guitar tuning is B-B, a perfect fourth lower than standard guitar. Two other fairly common bari tunings are A-A and C-C. I tune my Danelectro baritone guitar A-A.
