    Oh yeah, Jay is definitely my favorite and didn't need these goofs. Killer style.

    I always loved Pete Anderson and his playing as Dwight's band leader. Got to see them in concert back in the 90s. Great show!

    That first video is fine. But when it comes to Dwight Yoakam and “Little Sister” in particular, nothing tops the earlier live version of the song (imo) with Fast Eddy Shaver on guitar. Fast Eddy was a beast.

    Just FYI-
    Eddy Shaver was never known as "Fast Eddy".
    Perhaps you are thinking of guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke?
    He was the original guitarist for Motörhead.

    I feel fortunate to have seen Eddy Shaver perform with his dad, years back.

    Uh, yeah. Jimmy Bryant, Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Hank Garland, Grady Martin, Clarence White, Don Rich, Roy Clark, Leon Rhodes, Jimmy Rivers, Roy Nichols.

    Pete who? And Blight Hokum is just a Chippendales dancer with a cowboy hat.

    Ok. Pretty sure I saw somebody refer to him as Fast eddy in a YouTube video. Either way, he was a legend gone far too young. Supposedly he learned to play from Dickie Betts. That’s a hell of a guitar teacher to start off with.

    Coincidence to be talking about Eddy now, I just saw his dad died today.

    One of the more underrated actors. He’s brilliant at playing unapologetic psychotic characters.

    Dwight just seems to have a way of keeping it real.

    Pete Anderson helped out a lot with that.

    When I think of country tele, several vids and guitarists pop to mind… these more often than others (sorry for posting them yet again):

    Albert:





    Vince:



    This gem by Ricky Skaggs:



    Marty and cousin Kenny:



    I guess that Merle Haggard's classic sides with Roy Nichols and James Burton are good candidates too ;D

    Waylon, Jimmy Bryant, Brad Paisley, Steve Wariner… too many to mention!

    Vince Gill's tone is a perfect Country tone, I think. The only tone I aim for playing for fun is Brad Paisley's, which is just a perfect sound for me.
