I feel sorry for the brother in the back. He gives the expression "I got your back" new meaning. He finally gets to sing at the end. Good singers.

Yeah they were good. The brother Jim with the tele
decided he was too good for country and went on to
a more operatic type music and faded out.

Or perhaps the other way 'round... Very Happy

Those guys were top-line singers. Great steel sound as well. Who is the player?
I'll post a related item in Steel Players

ok...the sho-bud guy is fine...nice country licks...but the great thing there is tompall and jim doing the vocal trade off....just great entertainment you wish you could find now~!!

and then buddy....doing the thing...f*ckin around in the cool groove the way he showed us how ..no one does it like him. it's just the coolest thing he does ...simple as he makes it sound. there's other great stuff out there...maybe more intricate jazzy sophisticated whatever...but buddy...wow. and on t for texas which we've all probably dreaded at one jam or another!! those glaser boys can come to the party ..specially if they bring buddy!
i love that compressed flangy thing he gets tonewise!

side note: thread about sho-bud vs emmons..! what's the common factor here?

Wow, what a great clip, complete with the notorious "Rock Candy" phaser...It's true, no one else can play like that. Buddy may not be the best, but there's nobody any better. No, I take that back, he is the best... Reggie Young ain't no sdlouch either

Is he evil-eyeing the bass player at 01:40 as if to ask, "Dude where's my V?"

Did you notice him doing a reverse slant so he could pick up a certain note on a bass string? Only Buddy!

I'm a Sho-Bud player, and I thought it, (the Sho-Bud,) sounded annoyingly thin. Oh Well

What readily available phaser could someone recommend to get a similar tone?

Also, is Buddy using a phase effect on this video?

From what I can see on the "T for Texas" video, it looks like E is using an old MXR phase 90, there is only one knob on it and it's plugged into the steel, first in the chain.

On the "In the Water" video it sound like just delay.

I remember seeing him carry a brief case full of stomp boxes all wired up, an Echoplex, an Eventide Harmonizer and a pair of Session 400's one with a 15 and one built for 2 12" but it only had one installed.

I love Sho~Bud and had few that sounded amazing but this one sounds like crap...Buddy`s Emmons doesn`t sound much better either, I hate those effects...but those are both live recordings so I`m sure that has to do with those guitars not sounding too good...

Db

debate Sho~Bud VS Emmons p/p is pointless, it can not be won IMHO ...

Jeff, I was referring to the Sho-Bud sounding, "annoyingly thin," not the Emmons. There could be many reasons for this of course, not just the guitar. Smile

Jeff, I got it! Wink

Is there a school in L.A. where they train TV camera directors to cut to closeups of the hands of the player who isn't soloing? Rolling Eyes

One of the Glaser brothers had a thin sound and the other brother had a fat sound.Laughing
The Sho-Bud sounded great "so get over it"

Hey there Zach,

I don't think the big E is using a phaser in this clip, funny to hear him on a Sierra all super direct like that, not the tone we usually associate with him. How'd you like the octave pedal on the fiddler's solo?

Is that a very young Brent Mason sitting next to Buddy? Clip is mega grainy, but looks like him to me.

Thanks for posting these clips, amazing how much of Buddy there is out there.

Gerald
