    And of course you'll need at least 3-4 pair of these, from rugged-looking ones to fancy pants ones with rhinestones on them. image.jpeg

    Wow , that is really nice of you to say . I realize its a bit different , i changed my perspective on my on guitar playing a while back , its really a new instrument the electric guitar and the guitar is still young . I went back a few years to understand the diatonic way of thinking and the freshness of 30s and 40s , how everyone had there own gimmicks of sorts .

    Eventually it may get to a point where i will have to show people how to do it , i guess more views and subscription to my yt chanel.

    Best regards

    What is that pickup? Looks like a humbucker but does not sound like one.

    They are single coil , replica of old Valco design it was used in Lap Steel and guitars.

    It sounds also really nice playing slide
