    Vince Gill is one of the greats, and one thing that amazes me about his playing is that he always makes it look so easy. Here's a clip, and he starts his lead on his '53 Tele at about 2:20 and doesn't wind up for about 2 and a half spellbinding minutes.

    Pure inspiration!

    3,000,000 notes and he didn't miss one of them.

    A guy could make a career if he could sing OR play like Vince. What a guy.

    It sounds like one of his daughters is trying to break into the business. I hope she makes it.

    I am not a fan of country music - but damn! That is impressive! To do that without distortion is amazing...........Don't like the music, but RESPECT it!

    Huge Vince fan & having played for decades, I make anything other than rhythm or pretty simple fills look difficult if you watch my face.

    Vince is one huge talent in every way.

    His tone is always so good.

    I like the blues licks he plays on this one.

    That's what Leo & team had in mind when they designed the tele back in the days -- to get that very sound! No gizmos needed, just a cord and an amp.

    I'm no strat-basher, but the difference in sound & feel between the first tune with the tele & the 2nd with the strat, same player, same gig, is pretty huge to my ears. They are different animals for sure.

    Totally unfair to play that good and have that great voice at the same time.

    I am awestruck every time I watch this one. George Jones once said that Vince Gill had a voice too pretty for country music- he's done alright for himself though...:D
    Thanks for posting.
