    Junior gets a lot of respect around here. I happen to think it's completely warranted. If you're just discovering him, I'd say 'Guit With It' and 'Long Walk Back' are the two albums to start with.
    He's got immense talent and a sense of humor.

    To me Junior Brown is the definition of twang. Great videos!

    The first time I heard Junior was on my way home from work late one night about 20 years ago. Sugarcoat Rag came on and I had to pull over and listen. Then they played Highway Patrol. I went out and bought Guit With It. I've seen him play around town many times over the years here in Austin--he had a standing gig for years at the Continental Club and has sat in with lots of folks. Always a treat. He's truly a virtuoso and very unique in both his guitar and steel styles, though you can hear some influences in his playing for sure.

    Never cared for his style of steel playing until my son got into SpongeBob Squarepants.
    He does all the licks on that show. Some of the little interludes on that toon are amazing. Mucho Respect.
    From his website:
    Junior's Guit-Steel is tuned as follows:
    Steel Neck: C13 tuning: G E C A G E C Bb, high to low.
    Stratocaster Neck: EADGBE (Standard Tuning)

    Saw him live in an old grange hall here in Maine. He was so loud (2 Fender Twins iirc) that it shook the windows! Great night of live music!

    The only time I ever played in front of an audience (captive audience... no-talent night on a Coast Guard ship at sea :lol:) we played that one. I did not play it as good as Junior.

    I remember seeing him on tv when I was a kid. Left a big impression. To this day haven't ever seen anything quite like Junior Brown.
