Of all the rides that I've heard, this one always just "does it" for me! Even though a lot of players moan about (over-used?) A and B and "pedals-mashers", this song shows what a real player can do with them! It's a Porter Wagoner song featuring Buddy Charleton at his best. Super-hot pickin', and...using nothing but the A and B pedals. You don't hear this kinda stuff these days, and that's a real shame.

Donnie, I should've also said: Just about anything Buddy Charleton ever played. He has become my favorite, and biggest influence - Along with Papa John of course.

Yep... that was Tom on The Heart That You Own. His solo on I Sang Dixie is no slouch, either.

For me, it's PF with Time Jumpers with 'If You're Gonna Do Me Wrong' - each of these versions blows me away:

Then there's this as well, again PF with the Time Jumpers:

I get so inspired after listening to these songs. PF's playing is so emotional and soulful - you can tell that Dawn and PF are feeding off each other's creative genius.

RIP Dawn

Ricky Davis, I was fortunate enough to get to sing that song with John playing the magical intro and turnaround. Even more haunting live and in person.

Al Perkins with Manassas. So Begins the Task

Yeah, gotta go along with that.. its genius. Not hi tech wizardry, or complicated, just beautifully musical with a haunting tone.. I think by the time it was recorded, Al had moved on from his Fender 1000 steel to his ZB, but I'm not 100% sure... In either case, it was a lovely sound...

Along with that favorite of mine is Sneaky Pete's solo on Jackson Browne's version of take it easy.. Magnificent sound as always on his Fender, along with that old school flanging it is simply perfect..bob

Two really make me sit up and take notice; on Ricky Scaggs' "Country Boy", and Tim McGraw's "Just To See Her Smile".


Bruce Bouton is on "Country Boy"-Bruce played steel with Ricky at the time, and the steel on "Just To See You Smile" is Sonny Garrish.

Further to Jack's experience, I sang 'Someday Soon' with Albert Lee & Hogan's Heroes at a London gig and had the pleasure of calling on the Big E to play the solo.

That was sorta fun!

What a great thread! Keep them coming guys. This isn’t just fun, it’s very educational too.
I can’t say that I have a single favorite, but I am surprised no one has mentioned Jay Dee’s break on Misty yet. That always knocks my socks off!

Weldon Myrick on the Johnny Bush version of "Whiskey River". Some pretty hot licks on that turnaround.

When Sneaky Pete’s break comes in on Frank Zappa’s “It Just Might Be a One Shot Deal” it is always a sock in the gut for me, as well as a reminder of everything I love about the instrument.

That Tom Brumley Solo on “Heart that you own” is really beautiful. Great song as well.
