I scanned the thread and may have missed it:
Did anyone mention Marty Stuart?
Marty & Cuz
I love me this thread.
James Burton is a great Telecaster guitar player. I think the omission of JB was because the title of the thread. He plays much more than the "Country" Tele Sound and is a very versatile player who has played on hundreds of records in the studios for the who's who of American Music.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame = Sideman Category
I am as well!This is the reason i joined this website.The Tele country sound!To learn from all of the knowledge on here about that very subject!
Part of it is that Blackguard Tele. Wouldn't surprise me if that's a Broadcaster or more likely a No-Caster. If you make the video bigger you can make out the Fender part of the headstock at times, but you can't tell if it has a guitar name there. Definitely not your average Tele or your average player though.
I'll bet he's always been crazy but it keeps him from going insane.
It definitely has a neck pickup. But yep, Eddys first guitar was given to him by Dickie Betts, who was a neighbor. And his dad of course was a country legend too. So he probably had access to a lot of incredible guitars. From videos I’ve seen, seems his main guitar was a Strat.
by that logic you need to take Brad, Waylon, and Roy Nichols out of this thread as well. Probably Carl Perkins as well as Eddie Shaver.
Also why has nobody mentioned Reggie Young? That man has been on almost as many records, especially country records as James Burton.
What about Jerry Reed?
I did but an additional reminder can't hurt!
James is the guitar on Merle's Lonesome Fugitive--and that solo pretty much invented modern Telecaster country.
Lonesome Fugitive, need I say more?
Also check James's solo on Rodney Crowell's original Leaving Louisiana--it is just perfect I think--tone, touch, note selection, economy, brevity--just perfect.
It starts at 1:33.
What about Jon Jorgensen?
glenlivet i agree 100%
Pete's sound on this performance is so pure, honest and unprocessed , i have watched this 100's of times.
of course both Pete and Dwight are for certain absolutely brilliant!
I think you totally missed my point . And did recently post several Jerry Reed videos on tdpri.
Are the players you mentioned here in the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME? Other than Carl Perkins.
James Burton is.
I think YOU missed MY point. Those are the guys that help to define country telecaster tone. That is aside from Brad Paisley.
By your logic Luther Perkins should not be here because Johnny Cash is in the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame.
Yeah I’m not a huge fan of the Country Telecaster sound but I do love a good Country Esquire sound.
Maybe Esquire players choose less gadgets for a more pure honest tone?
Compressors and chicken pickin are too durn conformist, control your own damn dynamics and play whatever the hell YOU feel, not some dead guys tasty sig.
I NEVER Stated that James Burton shouldn't be here but just the reason he had not been mentioned to that point.
I never brought up Johnny Cash or Luther Perkins and neither did you on posting #89.
In fact I posted a video of Luther Perkins playing an Esquire on this very thread.
Who made you the guitar player police?
You are very much entitled to your opinion but I think Jimmy Bryant [with Speedy West] came before James Burton and Jimmy Bryant was playing Telecasters.
Here's a guy I bet you never thought you'd see in this thread
