  • Jerry Reed RAWKS!!!!

    Just learned a half-ass version of Pretty Mary Sunlite. It's the same watered down version I play when I pick Never Going Back Again. It's close, and you can sing to it, but it ain't the original.

            I remember seeing him on TV as a kid and he was pretty kickass. I saw that there is a DVD of him and Chet Atkins throwing down on a set in a huge concert.

            Any recommendations on CD by Jerry Reed I should get first?

              Man, the only song I knew by him was Eastbound and Pretty Mary Sunlite, and I downloaded it today--it's a fingerpicking nightmare to learn, but bliss to listen to.

              I'd say you can't go wrong with any of his stuff. I'm not a "greatest hits" kind of guy, so I can't really lead you to anything right now. I'm going to be talking to some of my buddies this week at work and I'll get back to you.

                Well I got a hard copy of the Elderly Instruments Catalog and in the CD section they have massive abouts of Jerry Reed Cds.

                I'll be looking forward for some guidance. thanks!

                    I just tried to look through my record collection and it's on "Half singing & half pickin". That album was released in 1979 on RCA. It has a totally awesome pedal steel guitar solo on it too by Paul Franklin , who must have been around 25 years old back then.

                    BTW, Paul is probably the most in demand steel guitar session player and he also toured the world with Dire Straits. I met him a few times (first time playing with Dottie West here in Holland when he was around 18 years) and he's a really nice guy and a absolute monster picker!

                    I have quite a few albums by Jerry Reed and I like all of them especially "Jerry Reed sings Jim Croce" (1980).
