    James Burton tells in his own words of all the different artist he played guitar with or on their records with Only ONE TELECASTER.
    Later he brought a 2nd Telecaster into the picture with the pink paisley Telecaster.

    I met him when the NAMM show was in Austin, circa 2007.
    I greatly admire his uncanny ability to created super memorable guitar parts!
    Nice, cool, low-key gentleman!
    Thank you, sir!

    His story about how he came to backup Ricky Nelson is really interesting. Great guitarist, very tasteful licks. A great example of less is more.

    At last, someone on my wavelength re the tone’s in the fingers. Listen to what the man says around 10:46. It’s not the tone that changes. Everything else can, sounds like the player, but when James played an old Silvertone it didn’t sound like him.
