    The recent thread about what album you can listen to ask the way through, well that got me thinking :

    Mine is Radney Foster's Del Rio TX, 1959.
    Awesome album. Every song great. Chords are mostly pretty easy and I can usually pick out enough sympathetic notes to fake some leads.
    Old Silver has got to be one of the best cowboy songs ever. It reminds so much of when I was 16 and got sent away to ranch boot camp (but that's a different story).
    So what's your favorite album to play along with?

    Edited for kaint spel.

    In my formative years as a guitar player, Revolver, Rubber Soul, and Briefcase Full Of Blues were spun literally every night. That was over thirty years ago, but they're still on the short list.

    To play along with? Dunno. But I find that I can get alot of productive yard work (mostly weeding) done w/ Exile on Main St.

    My dad had a bunch of Flatt and Scruggs records. We used to put one on and take out our guitars, mandolins and banjos and play along (just chords). We played through every record he had. It was a blast. I miss those days and I miss my dad. Thanks for starting the thread.

    I didn't mention but Tom Petty.
    Usually pretty easy but sometimes Mike throws a curve. Really fun.

    Start to finish I’ve been playin’ at night lately to Tres Hombres and Aja.
    Tres Hombres being by far harder to get the feel, tones and vibe. Aja being tougher chord/note wise and you frickin’ cant hear all the parts the guitar plays. Royal Scam would probably a funner run.

    Now I suddenly feel like a slacker.
    Thanks Jeff.

    I haven’t played along with a recording (except to learn something) since I was in high school.
    I loved doing it, or trying to do it as, the case was.
    I used to put on the Allman Brothers Band’s Live At The Fillmore album, and (try to) play Dickey Betts’ parts.
    I have always loved his playing, and tone.
    A friend loaned me a 1968 Gibson Les Paul Custom, and I had it for most of my freshman year in high school.
    I got my own 68 gold top shortly thereafter.
    I was a DB wannabe, guess I still am.

    Bill, I've heard you play, you blow DB away, IMHO.

    That LW record is a great one.

    FWIW, I like to put my old 160 gb iPod on shuffle and see what I can and can't do, 11000+ songs of various genres makes for some interesting practice.

    Very kind of you, but totally untrue.
    I saw DB and Great Southern with the wonderful (late) Dan Toler at Antone’s about 12 years ago.
    They were on fire!
