Why am I 52 and just now discovering Ry Cooder? Just great music!
Thank you for this.
Ry's the guy!
Even if he didn't play the solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".
I was a voice in the wilderness about Ry for many years.
"Ry Cooder? Who is he?"
Always thought he had great tone, and great taste. What else can you ask for?
I cannot answer your question “why?” What matters is that you have found Ry. Enjoy.
I was in my 30's before I discovered balsamic vinegar. All you can do is try to make up for lost time.
Sigh... Fifty years ago when I was first learning to play guitar I heard Ry play live and said to myself, "That's how I want to play!"
Talk about aiming high, but I was a kid without a clue other than I knew I liked Mr. Cooder.
Pure bliss was a concert with just Ry and his D-45.
Killer tone always.
Ry in my top five.
Love his sountrack work for Paris, Texas
LOVE the "California Trilogy"!
1. Chavez Ravine.
2. My Name is Buddy.
3. I, Flathead.
I, Flathead my favorite!
Thanks. That put a BIG smile on my face. God bless Ryland Peter Cooder.
I had just re-found this site with discussion about his gear!
Check out the Fretboard Journal cover issue featuring him and the Electric Annual #1 I think has even more on Ry!
Always liked this movie.
although off the wall and not mainstream
I fell in love with this album ,what a fantastic colaboration
Ry Cooder! Wow, a treasure trove of really awesome music!
in 1976, I was in high school. I'd seen Ry probably 10 times in concert. I sat in 5th period and I wrote his name on my peechee. I opened it up and I wrote down: I will name my first son, Ryland Kenton and my second son Joaquin Jackson. I never had the second son, but Ry did have a son and, interestingly enough, named him Joaquin.
my brother and I went to see him during the bob til you drop era, man, what a band.... but that was true of all of his bands. Later, I saw him Mr. Dave in a duo, they were both playing takamines (which was the Takamine that Glenn Frey later made into his sig model--> reduced bottom end) and it was just MUSIC!
So many eras and deep shifts in his music. Linda Ronstadt kind of did a similar thing of constant reinvention and chasing the sounds she loved and bringing in genius who immediately recognized genius.
I only wish I could have seen him in San Antonio with Flaco.
My ry trying out his coodercaster...
