    Indeed...
    You're welcome! Btw, I have it on good authority that in the not too distant future a network is going to feature a special on James Burton along with Steve Cropper. Looking forward to it! :)

    I watched this yesterday via a YouTube “recommendation.” I guess the folks here must think in similar circles. Ha.

    Funny about the paisley.

    I had the pleasure of meeting the man once. I'm always nervous about encounters with my heroes but James was very kind and gracious.

    I regularly read things on Premier Guitar and then see related threads. For example, one article mentioned Jeff Beck having a shaved neck on his Les Paul and then the next day someone was asking about the process here. They didn't mention the article though.

    Never get tired of listening to James Burton play or listening to his interviews.

    James has been a great inspiration over the years.
