Chris Clem, I am impressed with the strong singing of Bobby Austin (had never heard of him)--and Mooney's playing, of course.

On a Fender, right?

Wow, thanks, Ian!

Would Local 471, then, have been the African-American "alternative" to a [white] Pittsburgh local?

This image appeared in a Craig's list ad. Looks like a guitarist doubling on steel in a jazz-trio setting.

Three picks and a thumb pick here.

John Bidasio in LA got me started that way, and it made sense because after all, classical guitar players use that third finger.

Nice, Jerry, and well filmed, too.

I perked up at the end when suddenly there was a big old Guild . . . or DeArmond? I have 3 Guilds and a DeArmond myself.

Dennis, I am listening to Candyman now.

You are using a lot of delay--you know that. Perhaps you are using that to compensate for a [perceived] lack of sustain.

I am not a big fan of delay.

Horns are not appropriate for every musical situation, to be sure. But a trumpet, for example, has several plusses as a double:

1. Different sonority.
2. Playable with one hand.
3. Easy to tote: ...

Ricky, briefly, why do you prefer the pull-release? More stable once tweaked? Sound? Pedal action?

Steven, Mike P is giving some good advice. Trot 'er up to Bob Carlucci.

Fixing up a steel when you don't really play yet is a sure route to madness.
