I know this much: he did the opposite of what most guitar players do. He put the amp (fender vibrolux) on 10 and controlled the volume by his guitar's volume knob. Theres a book out on his life called : american ax.
(fender vibrolux) on 10 and controlled the volume by his guitar's volume knob.
Yup, the Vibrolux was his main personal amp. He was known to occasionally use whatever backline amp in spot situations. There's a pretty killer live version of Sweet Dreams on the burlap album, or Roy Bucannan and the Snakestretchers.
â€œImmortalâ€ poets have bemoaned divine aggression against manâ€™s puny shape.
Tell me about reality noble bards, as your flesh confetti floats across the abyss!

A Tele wizzard! Sometimes he would turn his back to the audiance when he was doing 'tricks' I saw him a few times and was blown away every time. I'll never forget the hand-truck full of 'Miller-High-Life' sitting stage left in Phila.
Originally posted by Bruce Bennett never heard anyone that could make a tele with an "ice pick in the ear sound"... sound so good.
Vibrolux 210 bright switch on, treble on 10, mids on 5, and bass on 4. and a Fritz Bros Custom tele with joe bardens..
I have my Old Flame 210 (similar to a VR) set with bright on but treble only at about a third up. mids and bass up at about 20 (bass much lower at volume). The pot tapering and the MIDs knob probably make the same setting different for my amp.
That would be very, very bright tho', with a tele...and I like bright. How'd it sound?
If you're reading this, it only confirms what a hopeless computer nerd you are...you're probably a fat loser too...my condolences.
