    What love to know what song he used that on. I googled it and found this excerpt from an interview with Tony Bacon:

    I show him a picture from the Rubber Soul sessions where he's clearly using a capo on the Rickenbacker bass. "What am I doing there?" he asks. Um, I rather hoped he'd be able to tell me. "Well," be laughs, "the thing with the bass on a lot of this stuff was that I'd try anything once. So I'll try a capo. I often do that when I'm writing a song - stick a capo on just so it's a different instrument than the one I normally play. Everything goes up a little bit and goes more tingly, and you get a song that reflects that. So it may well have been that we'd written a song on guitars: a certain key, so I only knew it in that key. Or maybe it was to get a higher sound. I often used to tune the strings down a tone, too, so the E would become a D. You'd have to be careful how hard you hit them, but it was kind of interesting. I would just mess around with any experimental effects. I'd try anything!"

    Ethan Signer (Charles River Valley Boys), Martin Carthy, Richard Fariña, Bob Dylan and Eric von Schmidt at the Troubadour Club, London. January 15, 1962. Looks like a pretty fine time was being had.

    Martin Carthy, who also just turned 80, is not so well known in the US, but was a major figure in the UK folk revival. His version of Scarborough Fair was the, um, source of Simon and Garfunkel's. Dylan perhaps learned the chords and melody he used for Bob Dylan's Dream from Carthy's Franklin.

    He painted the cover art for the album The Live Adventures of MB and AK. I remember because I got the double album from the Columbia Records Club, where they sign you with 10 albums for 10 dollars!

    Had me fooled. Now that I look at it, I believe Reagan was taller.[/QUOTE]
    Looks like Epiphone Coronet but I could be wrong

    OK, perhaps not rare but always worth a look. I saw the original and it was quite, what’s the word, emotional?

    I've looked at a bunch but not all of these. I'm sure this one has to be here already but if not...

    Joey Ramone!
