Oh! Thanks. I'm just partially aware, today.
A friend told me that Keith recorded the solo on a acoustic through a simple maxed-out cassette player. But I haven't tried to verify.
Zoot Horn Rollo on Captain Beefheart's Monnlight on Vermont. It's icepick all the way; Tele bridge pickup, capo-ed way up the neck, metal fingerpicks, maxed-out Showman. I wouldn't like to have been in the room while it was played, but it's great all the same!
The extra digit might be a clue?
I've got a few:
"Nashville West" - Clarence White & The Byrds
"Hummingbyrd" - Marty Stuart
"Hollywood Boogie" - Marty Stuart
All of Danny Gatton's stuff.
(Oops! I think I read the title wrong....ya'll didn't mean "favorite instrumentals"! Sorry, fellas!
Hands down, the screaming howl of Springsteen's tele in "Tunnel of Love". That tone is SO metal, but it's smack dab in the middle of a (almost) forgettable '80s ballad. I've always wondered how he got that sound and never found out, so I figured it was some esoteric combination of slide, wah pedal and voodoo, but I'm prolly wrong about the wah.
solo in Linda Ronstadt's "When will I be loved" from '70's always grabbed my ear
That version always irritated me a little bit, because the verses are in the wrong order. It's OK, but I've heard better, including of course the original from the "Elderly" Brothers.
I just read thru, and everytime I'd think of a tune with tele-solo greatness, someone beat me to it! One guess at this fella's great solo on a tele:
Ok it's a tele, but with strat pickups, EMGs at that, so maybe this misses out as being a true tele solo on a technicality... but this is THE best guitar solo I've ever heard..
Starts around 19:15
It's Phil Emmanuel, older brother of Tommy (who is on drums with this band, and he runs rings around just about any other drummer you will hear..) and I'm also a big fan of Chris Haigh's fretless bass on this track..
The whole album from start to finish is well worth listening to..read some of the youtube comments..
I instantly fell in love the moment I heard it the first time.
I'm going to toss out Peaceful Easy Feeling. I could listen to Mr. Leadon pick all day long.
the whole damn song....is a telecaster showcase...lol
being the Kotzen pretty much only uses his signature Tele these days...I'll put up anything he plays on...lol
My favorite all time solo was on a Les Paul (Eagles-One of these Nights) but as far as tele solos go there are thousands of great ones, my favorite still has to be the end solo on Brad Paisley's Old Alabama, its the album that made me pick up a guitar again and still one of my favorite songs.
2 Spring to mind.
Brian mays crazy little thing called love (which always struck me as Hank marvin meets Scotty moore)
And Danny gattons harlem nocturne from oh no, not more duelling telecasters.
zeke turner's is one
A few sites online claim that the solos of Hey Joe and Purple Haze were recorded with a borrowed telecaster. Does anyone know if this is true?
Hendrix said you could only get one tone out of a telecaster. Or 2. One good and one bad. But he also would pick up whatever was around. So it's not impossible.
