    Hello all.
    I found this video on the old interweb today. From 2.19.10
    First off I've lost a 140lbs since this video was made.
    So please no fat guy remarks.
    I'm using a Fender American Standard Telecaster with Duncan Vintage Stacked humbuckers, into a Analogman TS9 with the Silver mod into a Boss DD3 into a 4x10 Hot Rod Deville. The HRD was at a super low volume.
    We never rehearse. Everyone on this gig knows a lot of different material and we just call out songs and play them. Somebody wrote me and said I sounded a bid like Redd Volkhardt. Me, personally I'd never compare my self to any of those great players.

    I hope you enjoy this old video of mine. I'm just laying back and supporting the singer.
    The fun starts after the solo.

    A neat piece of Telecastering and note-targeting, DRR. :cool:

    Wow, That was great! I had a question for you. Did you improvise that solo on the spur of the moment or did you have it worked out before hand?
    Either way, great solo and great playing.

    Hello. I was just improving off the top of my head.
    It was a small restaurant so I was just laying back.
    We where playing at an extremely low volume which I like.
    You can hear the patrons at their tables talking.
    I really enjoy myself when I get to play on straight up
    Country songs. I appreciate your kind words!

    Stay well, DRR
