Tony, I have a new computer and I'm trying to find the practice track that you posted on the forum a few months ago so I can download it to my computer. If you don't mind will you post that link again? It was in the key of G. Thanks

Nice pickin', Tony, and a great web site. I enjoyed all of the samples -- your work on Tele as well as steel. Nice vocal work by your wife, too.

Tony, I'd like to add, I really like your Tele tone, and if I'm ever able to get me a good Tele and a good amp, that's the tone I'd like to shoot for. I remember in one of your post you mentioned you had a Fender Hot rod deville, or Hot rod deluxe I think. Would you mind sharing which Tele and which amp you were using on that clip? The practice clip in the key of G is the one I'm refering to. Thanks

Terry..you're too kind.

That was the 52RI DIRECT to the workstation , as was the Steel. But I should add that I do go thru an ART ( cheap) 12AX7 Preamp first before the workstation ( Yamaha AW2816 )

I have written EQ patches for the Tele's, Steel and Bass which I use for each Instrument all the time.

The Hot Rod Deville is one of the amps I use on the gigs now and then, lately I have been using the Session 400 and for whatever the reason, this is the ONLY Peavey Steel amp that I have where I can FIND the Tele' tone I like..

Hope this helps

Terry, regarding the Tele' and tone.. keep in mind that I do not use any picks. This is something that basically took most of my lifetime to bring to the table, and it still is not where it should be...but there's still time..

I hope...

no picks? I don't think I could ever learn to play without picks. But I suppose your bare fingers grabbin the strings is what creates that special tone that I like. Kind of a pluckin, twangin sound. I reckon I can forget gettin anywhere close to your tone since I use a flat pick and my middle finger. I'll just have to settle with what I can get. First thing I need is a good Tele.
