I love everything about this, except his shirt. I know...I'm shallow.
Great sound, and I still play this song far too often.
I always loved that song , 3 chords long and it rings, the original video was hot as well, thanks for posting
the original video was in hawaii , with a victoia Secret model , no shirts on
Great stuff! Thanks!
Never has a Strat sounded more like a Strat. Except on Little Wing.
I really liked Isaak's early stuff. I was a big fan of his original guitarist James Calvin Wilsey.
James Calvin Wilsey
Wilsey has posted here in the past to discuss the gear he used on that song, and IIRC a little bit about how he played it.
What’s that Gibson he’s playing? A custom 336/339 with Varitone and Bigsby?
I'd love to know how to find or see that post. LOVE the sounds and style of playing on Chris's albums.
Cool song. My very first time singing in front of people was back in 09 at a coffee shop in Long Beach. A friend of mine played the simple chords, because I wasn't able to play and sing yet at that point. I was very nervous, but things went better after the 3rd song. Believe it or not, we did a 6 song set, and they wanted an encore. It was pretty cool.
It has parallelogram inlays as does an ES-345. ???
And Sultans of Swing and........I hear ya though and agree. It's just pure strat and James' touch, tone, phrasing, dynamics, talent and soul brought to life.
While I don't listen to Chris Isaac as often as I used to, he and is bands still strike a chord when I hear one of his songs. Back in 1986, I was tooling down the road in my 1970 Cadillac Sedan Deville. I just had a new cassette deck and speakers installed, so I was digging turning it up loud. As I was searching for stations, a song came on I had never heard before. It grabbed me so hard, I had to pull off the road so I could listen and try to figure out who the hell it was. The song was You Owe Me Some Kind Of Loving.
For once, the DJ actually named the band and song, so I made a quick trip and bought the cassette it was on. I found Silverton by accident a few days later at a used record shop.
Anyway, I still love playing Wicked Game and it always gets a comment... either, "Great song", or "Is that an original"? I'd love to come up with a riff/hook as cool, memorable and classically iconic.
I seem to remember him saying in an interview it was a one off Gibson prototype/trial model that he was given so it's close to as rare as a unicorn
I enjoy playing this song on my tele. It’s fun bending the first note to simulate the whammy bar/Strat it was recorded with originally.
Makes me miss his tv show.
This guy did it on an acoustic:
