back in the radio/LP days I didn't know or care what gear artists used.... I never got to see any of those bands live...
It's only now when I start playing some obnoxious open E heavy handed tele bridge pickup twang with some drive..and hear that unmistakable sound...It takes me back to that early PF Syd Barrett sound that I so loved... just so in your face...
those EC tones on Blind Faith..it's on there too... the Reeling in the Years tones..they're on there too...
the tele is kind of everywhere when I check out those ytube clips of the old bands I listened to... it's comforting
Jeff beck and his tele gib. Status quo and their tele mutts. springsteen
Actually a mate whom I played in a band with. He had an Ash Thinline ( mostly Mighty Mite parts back in the late 70).Telecaster p/up in the rear and an original wide range pickup in the neck- played through a Musicman amp and he taught me how to build a guitar. I sold my Gibson L- 6S and have been building since- as well as buying a few very impressive brand name guitars since.
We, the four of us, had ben recording for a guy, we left him and rehearsed and got our first gig that night. Well paid too. $75 per hour per person in 1980.
When I discovered that the solo for “Stairway to Heaven” was done on a Telecaster in the middle position. I was like “OK SOLD!”
Stephen Stills - those lead lines throughout the first CSN album....
Eric Clapton - always an influence, but the sounds and images with Blind Faith had a big impact
Roy Buchanan - Live Stock was a revelation
Steve Cropper - Booker T and The MGs.... 'nuff said
Jimmy Page - that early Zep stuff was huge
Muddy and Keef. Later, Tab Benoit.
Infamous, what does that mean?
While in the Army I was stationed at Wright-Patt AFB in1985-87. I played in a country band, singer was Jeannie and the lead guitarist was Jerry. Both worked at the GM plant. First time I had head the "Twang" of a Tele. Don't remember last names or the name of the band; all good working-class Ohioans, not pretentious at all.
