Watch what happens after 2:51 What a run! Nice job!
One of my all time favorite rides. I'm going to burn both my guitars now, and throw the amps on top!

Shocked Yeah he takes to a whole 'nother level . . !

Always a pleasure to listen to him and other big league players.

But I'm not going to burn my gear . . yet!

Going to just keep plodding along and enjoy the ride . . Oh Well

I just now listened to it.

Roy, Dick, I have a MSA, a Webb amp, a few other things I would like to add to the bonfire if you don't mind.

Wohow, that is something. If I would be in the band, playing another instrument, I think I couldn't play on, just watch and listen... Oh Well

And...count me in on the bonfire...

Kind Regards, Walter

Forget the bonfire. After watching both of those videos, I'm going to send my wife to the store and just burn down the house around me with everything in it.

It should be against the law to play like that in public. Dang you Tommy White!!!

I like the way he does the rake in the beginning.
Here's a tab for it.

Too late David. I already have the insurance check. I told the insurance company that I was playing a Tommy White CD, and all the hot licks caught the house on fire. At first they didn't believe me, but after they listened to those two videos that I listened to, they wrote the check to cover the damage right then and there.

Older thread I know, but I just listened to T.W.'s Wichita Lineman again from the 2003 By Request CD. What terrific tone and phrasing. Of course I've been a fan of Ky's native son for many years and have always been thrilled to hear him at the many venues around the country.

I think I'm gonna throw my gear in bonfire with the rest of you. After nearly 40 years of struggling, I don't come anywhere near approximating this type of professional quality.

Not wanting to make anybody feel bad, but seriously, it might just be time to sell out and quit trying.

Jumping on the bandwagon here, all I can say is wow! Does anybody know where a person could get a copy of his By Request CD?
