Twin guitars with Junior Barnard from a Bob Wills movie, "Wyoming Hurricane" (1944).


The filming was probably sync'ed from a recording, but the hand positions of both Leon and Junior made sense to me. I think they were playing live during filming but not being recorded simultaneously.

Son, we live in a world with walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with steel guitars. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg?

It's always been tough to wrap my mind around the thought of Leon - Junior and Jody on the same band at the same time. What would that cost nowadays? Couldn't afford it. They'd all be fronting their own big time orchestras. Junior would have been a super star if he had lived. He died in 1951 - 30 years old.

Cotton Thompson cementing his place as the best western swing vocalist of them all. Honorable mentions to Leon Huff, Johnny Tyler, and Tommy Duncan.

Gotta love Bob poking at Junior with the fiddle bow.

Fun stuff. I'm wondering what kind of steel he was using. Can anyone tell?
