Gee, he turns the thing into a lullaby; so sweet, so perfect and the low string that rises at the end of the verse genius... the whole thing is almost classical in it's delivery.... a great player without compare...Peter

I believe this guitar is one of the best sounding non-Emmons guitars he ever played.

Buddy is obviously using a delay device here.Does anyone know what brand? and can anyone hazard a guess at the settings?
Best regards

Hi Billy....That clip was 1989, so not sure if he was still using an Echoplex as in his earlier days.

I was fortunate enough to follow Buddy Emmons' workshops around 1989 on the right coast (Armonk NY , other). This was one of my fav tunes, he seemed to fill the room up with it. I had it recorded on tape (with his permission) and I have transferred it to CD but I cannot reproduce it here for copyright reasons.

Buddy is to me the greatest of pedal steel guitarists, and his tasteful control of swell and harmony is gob-smackingly beautiful in this tune in particular. Buddy used an impedance matching device that clipped to the leg of his pedal steel, I think it was called a Matchbox and I had one too, long gone out of use. Yes, he did use a delay, a rack-mounted unit, and I think a delay of about 50 to100ms; it thickened the attack on his picking.
