    Southern Culture on The Skids are a great band - this is my band's cover of 'Daddy Was A Preacher, Momma Was A GoGo Girl'. Although it's not originally their song, I heard them doing it so we added it to our repertoire. Not playing my Tele here, but you can see two of the four I use in the rack there ...

    Smokin'! Great sounding track and guitar work Carl. Forgive me for asking but do you know the specs on that great sounding drum kit?

    Toe-tappin'! Nicely done!

    We usually pull out several SCOTS tunes at jams. They are a blast to play. Corn Liquor and Put Your Teeth Up On the Windowsill always get a good crowd reaction.

    Thanks a lot Alan. The kit is a Roland HD-3 that I bought about five or six years ago. It was probably the cheapest one they made at the time at around $600 although they make a cheaper one now that doesn't have a proper skin for the snare pad like the HD-3. Mine has had a real hammering over the years from a lot of fine drummers and I've done loads of recording and videos with it. What a great purchase it was - it's made so much possible and I've really had my money's worth from it. It has about 20 kits and it's quite basic in that you can't edit the kits or anything and has only a stereo out. Neither of those things have proved to be a serious limitation to be honest.

    I love this song! For me it's super important to nail the intro just exactly the way Scots does it oh, and then you're good to go from there with whatever embellishments you want

    Also extra props if your drummer is the kind to speed up towards the end and make everything kind of manic and dizzy
