One from the past...
That old boy could play him some guitar.
Yeah, he stands around with it a lot, but when he plays...he can play.
should we be drinking a coors right about now!?
More than one!!!
He could also do a little of that fancy type pickin' if he wanted.
I've done Eastbound And Down many times. I asked one lead guitar player, that said he knew it, if he had all those Jerry Reed leads, like 'right off the recording'. He replied "Hell no. Are you nuts? I got something that'll work though..."
Yes, Jerry Reed was a monster of a player, and song writer.
Guitar Man, Amos Moses, When You're Hot-You're Hot, She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft), and more.
His list of acting appearances is equally impressive.
An incredibly talented man.
You can. I'd rather have a beer.
I get to play this song fairly often.
My friend Kenny tears it up.
People really enjoy it.
Jerry was brilliant!
True entertainer. No equivalent today.
Amen, though Brad Paisley has key elements.
BP plays great, sings well, writes well, and has a well developed sense of humor.
Always loved that song. Gotta join a country band if I'm gonna bother learning half of Reed's licks, though. And pulling off half of them would only be hopeful.
Way back before Jerry Reed was even a name in music, my uncle (who, sadly, is suffering with dementia) used to run around and hang out quite often with Jerry and Jerry's then-wife (I don't know her name) in Atlanta, GA.
I sure miss him. I wish I could have met him because I would have asked him if he remembered the name, "William Jack Hughes" (my uncle).
Regarding "Amos Moses", I didn't know until recently that line about hunting for alligators in swamp was based on country singer Freddie Hart's life. Jerry mentions it in this interview. I know Freddie lied about his age to get into the Marines during WWII. Maybe he figured he had a better chance fighting the Japanese in the Pacific than he had with his dad.
I know this word is overused these days...but, watching this made me realize how much "swagger" he had. Complete confidence.
Boy can pick.
