    I have a TC Shaker which gives a real nice Leslie/rotary effect. I'm looking for suggestions of tunes that might use that sound for guitar. Blues tunes are more than welcome but would like to hear any suggestions. Here's a few I have for starters:
    1. Cold Shot
    2. Hoodoo Man Blues - Jr Wells/Buddy Guy
    3. Good Moring Little Schoo Girl - Paul Rogers

    There's a ton.

    Badge - Cream
    Brain Damage - Pink Floyd
    Candyman - Grateful Dead

    Off the top of my head...

    Soundgarden - "Black Hole Sun," and several others.

    Queens of the Stone Age - "Just Another Love Song," just to name one.

    The Beatles - "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." It's subtle but it's there.

    Good list, although I think "Bridge of Sighs" is actually Univibe, not Leslie. "Machine Gun", too.

    Love the Ace song, hadn't thought of that one.

    You already referenced SRV's "Couldn't Stand the Weather" record, and that's a good one for it. From what I've gathered, those are all really Jimmie Vaughan playing through a Fender Vibratone.

    JLV's Fab T-Bird stuff is a good source, as well. He didn't start using the Vibratone until the third album, though.

    How 'bout Leslie playing "Nantucket Sleighride"?

    Cold Shot - Stevie Ray Vaughan
    The solo in Good Times Bad Times by Led Zeppelin

    That or a Univibe, not much of a difference. In fact, if you set a chorus right (high speed, low depth) you can get in the ballpark.

    Great stuff!

    Anybody got more straight ahead Blues ideas besides Jimmie Vaughan (which was great but I'd be shocked if it was him and not SRV playing on Cold Shot as was suggested - stranger things have happened though)

    Sorry. You are correct about "Cold Shot". I checked the liner notes and they credit JLV as second guitar on just two cuts: "Couldn't Stand the Weather" and "The Things That I Used To Do". He used a Vibratone on both those cuts.

    Once I found that out, it was so obvious to my ears...especially on the latter cut; that's pure JLV goodness, right there. :D

    I agree. I've never felt the need to get a "-vibe" pedal. My old Marshall chorus can do a great job of it, by itself.

    No need to apologize, I actually find Jimmie's playing preferable though I'm not gonna knock Stevie for anything he's done.
