    I don't really know Ry Cooder that well, but I love that song as performed by Willie Watson.

    This is one of my favorites of his for sure. I just listened to it the other day. Once I get my baritone together this one of my first songs to try out.

    One of my favorite guitar intros - the 1st 10 seconds or so just knocks me out

    Me too. CSM is one of my favourite albums by anyone.

    By coincidence I found myself humming Yellow Roses this morning, long before I saw this thread.

    Big Cooder fan since I was just a pup.
    He has put out dozens of great albums over a lot of years.

    You don't need a baritone---though that would be a cool twist. Just tune to Open D and turn on trem and reverb.

    That's the cool twist I am looking for, a lower register to play some songs. I have three other guitars in open tunings. I'll start with a few Ry Cooder instrumentals. Just got the body finished and my neck from Warmoth. That's another thread.

    If you're ever having a bad day, I say just flip on some Cooder. Things will look a little rosier.

    One of my bands does 'Jesus is on the Mainline', as a three part unaccompanied harmony.
    The other does 'He'll have to go', in a Cooder style.....

    He's a Living Legend/National Treasure. :cool:

    I went to hear Ricky Scaggs when he had RC in the band on electric. The amp was a Magnatone Custom 280 with the custom tube pre-amp in front of it.
