      for this song I used my MIM Strat with Texas Specials in it into a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe with a Marshall AVT 4x12 cab under it. the OD is a Boss SD-1, and the wha in the solo is a Crybaby. the other guitar player used the same set up basicaly, but he didn't run through the cab.


      I write alot of songs like this. I also write heavier tunes from time to time, but I try to stay true to my roots.

          I play a epiphone dot (335) through a fender deville 2x12; also play a washburn 12string either DI or through the deville. I'm the backup/rhythm player and the lead vocalist.

          Our lead player uses a strat and a fender american standard, a steel resonator, and a lapsteel, through a mesa boogie lonestar.

                I've been thinking of getting a Dot. how does yours compare to a 335? in my teens I had a G-400(SG), and it was a good guitar. if I still had it today, the only thing I would do to it would be to change the pick ups out for PAF type aftermarket p/ups.

                  I love it. I'm not a gearhead, but I like the tone and the playability.

                              i live in the heart of the mississippi delta. i live 24 miles from highway 61, 20 miles from bb king hometown of indianola, 15 miles from robert johnsons grave memorial in sidon(yes there is another in money, ms), ive played at ground zero blues club(owned by morgan freeman) bunches of times, played at 308 blues club in indianola, i know super chickan, paul wine jones, and countless other blues artist. two of my band mates live in clarksdale(where 61 meets 49 or crossroads). we play nothing but rock music. you can take the best blues act in our area and play any club you want and you might get 25 people there. a good rock band will pack the house. i dont think the youth give a rat's ass about the blues. they say that blues come from african americans, well they dont give a **************** either. they dont go to the shows. the black youth would rather listen to crap or rap than any blues artist. i have a lot a friends that are deep rooted in the blues and i hate it for them. you had better do it because you love it because the money aint there. i personally don't care much for the blues but i do believe it has its place. morgan freeman has tried real hard to promote the blues. we can't play his club ground zero anymore because we dont do any blues but if we did we would draw 10 times the crowd the blues act will. his club is strictly a blues club, thats what he wants, thats what he gets. i know there is a bigger market somewhere for the blues but it sure is sad that it is not here. i had a friend with me and we went through sidon and i showed him the robert johnson memorial. he didnt know who robert johnson was. what a shame. the youth today.
