The man was a complete monster
I do believe that you have your answer:
It ain't just you, hoss.
Oh, my! That's beautiful!
Guy knows how to manhandle a Strat, a 335, a Telecaster, among many others...
And he can play Rock, Jazz, Funk or Blues on any one of them.
Living legend. One of my all time greats...
Whether he is speaking truths about guitar playing in general, or just showing off his licks to a newer generation, there's very few that can't learn something from this Telecaster Master.
(because yeah, I think he does love the Tele a bit more than any other guitar... [ducks])
What a beautiful performance.
If I had my eyes closed, I don't think I could hear the difference between the p90 and a regular tele neck pickup. Makes me wonder how different they really are. Now I need to try a p90 neck myself...
When I recorded a CD with a 19 piece jazz band I didn' get to do any solos. When the CD came out I was surprised to hear one on one tune: fat, jazzy and definitely not me.
People complimented "my" playing and tone. I realized the producer/engineer had added it in during the mix down.
Turns out the engineer felt something was lacking and had a buddy do a solo on his Telecaster. I added the same solo during a number of performances, but of course played on a humbucker semihollowbody it didn't sound quite the same. I would have used my Tele, but my bandmates would have had a fit, because "it wasn't a jazz guitar."
A lot of similar sounds, though I do find a P-90 pushes an amp a little harder.
Makes sense. Do you think a Princeton Reverb is a good amp choice for this kind of sound?
I think a Princton Reverb is always a good choice. What's the application? Playing at home? Gigs?
Bill Frisell used an SG for years!
I remember seeing a solo jazz guitar player about 30 years ago playing a 7 string Ibanez Jem finger style. It looked whacky but sounded sublime. Emmylou Harris had a guitarist who had played a Gibson with a pull-string and p-90's. You can make it work if it works for you!
Yeah just at home. Sometimes with a drummer. Nobody will be giving me a gig any time soon
Check out Tim Lerch.
Actually love jazz on a tele! If you have it set up right it’s just so easy to play and makes it fun!
Wow, there really is a pickup called Barfuss Stratone! I thought you were shuckin' and jivin', but I looked it up.
Jazz is in the fingers and the ears, not the equipment.
I’m normally on my bridge, but I use the neck pickup a lot as a lead guitarist. But yes, that is one thing the neck pickup is good for as well.
Telecasters are so versatile; it’s not just you. They fit most any genre.
While we’re at it, I have another question: Is it just me or are L-5s not good for twang? I don’t mean to say you can’t play the same notes, but can you picture Red Volkeart on an L-5?
Nobody brought this?
I posted this the other day. One of the few times Ive seen Larry with his '51 Tele. Again it's in the fingers...obviously!
