They say music can soothe the savage beast. (I wonder who "they" are?) Here be the place for discussions about music you like (any kind), musical instruments, favorite songs or videos (family oriented, please!), your favorite performers/artists/bands...you name it.

One of my favorite singer/songwriters for decades has been the amazing Canadian singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot. He played here in town again last night; I almost went to see him for the third time, but the set list is probably the same as the last two times, and he has lost a lot of his highs and lows vocally at age 78...even though this might be his last dance.
Instead, I stayed home and listened to the best footage of him ever, recorded by the BBC in 1972 when he was at the absolute peak of his game along with Rick Haynes on bass and Red Shea (R.I.P.) on lead guitar. A tighter band you will not hear; they don't miss a note. There is not a bad song on this session (pre "Sundown" and "Edmund Fitzgerald") and his renditions of "Summer Side of Life", "If You Could Read My Mind" and "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" are all better than the original studio versions (if you can believe that!)
If you are a fan of Gordo please take the time to watch a legendary giant at the peak of his game.

I would have posted some photos of my various guitars and amps here, but unfortunately all those photos are on PukeBucket so I will have to shoot some new ones.

My uncle Ted spirit of the wild CD doesn't leave my truck and I play it every single time I'm heading hunting. If not that my 2 favorites are Johnny Horton and Marty Robbins. 50s country is by far my favorite music even though it was made 30years before I was born.

Sierra Hull! WOW!!! :shock:
I'm also a fan of Gordon Lightfoot!
I'm into many kinds of music when it comes down to it, I can't seem to nail down any certain genre that holds me captive. There are some types that repulse and repel me though.

A local station was featuring Steely Dan, in memory of the late Walter Becker who passed earlier this month. The happened to play my favorite Dan song, "Reelin' in the Years" and I couldn't get it out of my mind, so I figured I would try to learn it.
Elliott Randall, the studio musician who played the scorching intro, lead break, and outro on this cut, has always been held in very high esteem by yours truly for his work on this cut.
In Mr. Randall's own words, taken from a Guitarist Magazine interview from July 2012:

“When I moved to LA, the timing was really quite appropriate for Steely Dan’s first recording,” Elliott recalls. “So I was asked to come in. Apparently, Reelin’ in the Years was proving to be a problem for them because – as good as Jeff and Denny were – whatever they were doing wasn’t making Donald and Walter feel as though they had the appropriate guitar intro, solos and outro. So they called me in and asked if I would be interested in playing on it.” Fresh to the session, Elliott cut what is arguably his most famous solo in a matter of minutes. “They played the song for me once – the changes are not very complex. Then we took two passes. The first pass, which some of us to this day say was better, wasn’t recorded. It was a run-through and we all went, Whoah! Then we looked at the assistant engineer who had turned ghostly white, and he said, ‘Oh, sorry, I didn’t press the button’. So my second pass was what you hear on the record – it was completely unedited. It was just from top-to-bottom all the way through. And it worked – we all just laughed afterwards.”


His work on this cut is really brilliant, considering he was a young 20-something kid at the time!

When I read about his gear on this cut, I was torn as to which axe to use. My favorite (electric) guitars are my two Strats, but Randall had used a '63 Strat with a '69 Les Paul humbucker* (pickup) in the neck position for a little more bite. I decided to forgo the Strats and try out my '74 Epiphone Casino due to the fact it had humbuckers,* and I found the tone I was looking for pretty quickly by switching to the neck pickup, cutting the tone pot down about halfway with volume pot cranked full up, and running my Fender DSP 90 in the "More Drive" setting but cutting the amp volume way down to house-playing level (around "2" on the amp volume setting) that would keep the missus from throwing things at me.

Here's the original Steely Dan track from YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bwHK1xkgJA

After an hour or so of monkey motion, I pretty much have the intro nailed. Not bad for an old guy. :roll:

Here are a few pix of the Epi. This was my first electric, bought brand-new in 1974 with earnings from my first job. It has quite a history, having fallen over while I was away at college and having a chunk break off the nut (the plastic string guide at the headstock end of the neck) It went to a friend with some guitar repair qualifications for repairs, and he removed the old nut and then stuck it in a closet for like ten years. I finally got tired of waiting, and asked for it back and it sat in my closet for another decade, when I finally decided to either get rid of it, or take it to a pro. Fortunately, I chose the latter. By now the original Tune-O-Matic bridge was lost along with the Frequensator tailpieces. Fortunately aftermarket stuff was available. Sure was good to hear the old dog bark again! In a surprise twist, the windings in the pickups have aged and the magnets have weakened some, and it has a sweet, mellow tone until you crank it up...then it really snarls! Which worked out perfect for this tune, as Randall gets quite a snarly tone...

Note the newer gold plating on the new Frequensator and bridge...

*a "humbucker" pickup has two coils, wound opposite polarity, to cancel or "buck the hum". They usually have at least double the output of a typical single coil pickup, hence have more lows and a "fatter" sound.

I love Marty Robbins' stuff! I grew up on it, Dad was a big Marty Robbins fan.

My dad was also a fan of Marty Robbins, the very best of the gun ballad singers as far as I'm concerned.

so many good ones but here are some of my personal favorites

I still have the Gunfighter Ballads album pictured in the last vid on vinyl. It was Dad's. :D
