OK, so i'm a little bit late to the party. Heh-heh. Two things; -didn't Messina use steel fingerpicks back with Poco? - was just re-listening to some early Poco after decades. Was amazed at the terrific lead tone on "Anyway Bye-Bye" from the Oranges album (as opposed to Jeff Beck's Orange album). Anyone know how he got it? Has to be some sort of pedal, but not a dirty fuzz sound at all, and i can't remember a pedal back then (69?) that had that sort of tone.
