    Hi everyone!! I share with you this cover of Cissy Strut.

    I found an "isolated drums" video of Zigaboo (The Meters funky drummer) playing Cissy Strut live. So I just recorded the guitars and called a friend to help me with the low frequencies. And this is the result.

    Hope you like it!

    Our trio band's drummer ( who is really good at anything!) just sent me and our bass buddy this link last week.

    We play Cissy Strut- we love it, folks love it!

    Very nice. You really nailed Leo's guitar sound.

    Many people don't realize that those great Josie records were recorded with a Tele. He is often associated with the Starcaster, but that model didn't even exist when those records were made.

    Again, nice work.

    Great tune.
    I like Oz Noy's version a lot too. Played on a Telecaster.

    Thank you all for stopping by and listen :)

    Thank you!! I tried to get it as close as I could.
    Of course the Starcaster was mid 70's, I have also seen it in some old pics playing a Telecaster Deluxe.

    But according to Leo, The Meters' first record was recorded entirely with a Gibson ES-175.


    Wow, this is nice!! big fan of Medeski.
    I would've loved to have an organ player playing with us, but here in Argentina it is not common at all to find one.


    As a fan of The Meters, I envy that! haha.
    Unfortunately these bands never toured South America.

    Very nice - I enjoyed that very much (and I have posted that brilliant Oz Noy version here myself)!
    I never played Cissy Strut in my old band - but we did do Jungle Man!
    The Meters never get old - timeless classics, thanks for posting!

    I have heard that about the 175, but I don't hear that sound (open, woody) in their recordings. I have seen in a couple of places that it was pretty much a Telecaster on those records and all the songs we love.

    Makes totally sense!
    In fact, the sound of the Tele connected to my PR silverface with bright switch on, results in a very similar sound to the original Cissy Strut (i didn't use it on this cover).

    Although in some songs I feel like a "jazzy" sound that could be that semi-hollow guitar, there is also an interview (I think on a Gibson's blog) where he attributes the recording of the first album to the Gibson ES-175.
