I know Dickey always used his LTD with Rossie (Emmons)
steel & what a sound. My question is Did Dickey every use the LTD amp with that killer Sho-Bud with Amber??
I want to see how the LTD sounds with a Sho BUd
Thanks in advance.

When Dickie was living in Tulsa for a short time, he played a Sho-Bud Super Pro with a LTD, don't know if it is the same one he had while in Texas.

I believe Dicky played his LDG through a Fender Vibrosonic Reverb with Amber and Midnight Flyer.

Is that the one Randy Lindley owned and was letting Dickey use?

Yes, I sold it to Randy. BTW, it didn't sound like that when I owned it. Smile

Autry, I don't know for sure... I looked at a couple of videos on YouTube, because I was curious also, but I didn't find any where you could really see the amp that well. In one you could see a little of it and it looked kinda like a Webb to me.. not sure though.

Yeah when Bill Terry sold it to Randy for Dicky to play; I picked it up from Bill and took it; as at that time I lived with Randy's ex-wife, Miss Leslie across the street from him; and at that time of the purchase by Randy; he already Married Amber Digby and Dicky is her step-dad and was going to play Live with them...so I set it up for Dicky with his Copedent....and I always did the string change and tweeking for him. When he started playing this LDG...he stopped playing his Emmons and LTD....cause when he got this LDG...Randy stuck a Fender Twin behind Dicky and Dicky LOVED it...and I believe he continued that until he passed(RIP Dicky....we miss you so much).

Dickey's playing was inspiring, on the level of Ralph Mooney, and in many ways better. Besides being one of the greatest players ever, Dickey was a good person. I am still trying to play the thing he played on Johnny's Bush's "I'll Be There".

I want to thank each & every one for your comments.
My question has been answered.....
& I agree a sho-bud in front of a fender is a hard combo to beat.
Thanks again.

CORRECTION:

A Sho~Bud, a Twin Reverb, and DICKY OVERBY are a hard combo to beat.

Ricky, I have a really stupid question. I have played, "I'll Be There" many times as a instrumental, but always avoided playing that great part that Dickey played. What Dickey played fit great with his band, even though what he played was not melody. If I had tried to play what Dickey played on the Johnny Bush song I guarantee the bands I have played with would be lost. So what do you tell the band to do during the passage Dickey played?
Just stay in C until the last part starting on the 10th fret G, then winding back at C on the end? The progression does not seem to follow the melody, at least in my head. For that reason I know it would throw a band who had not rehearsed it.

WEll Keith that section Dicky played over was the second half of the 1 chord > 1 1 1 1 1 1 5 1
Only band I played it with was back when me and Redd Volkaert played in band together....so HE KNOWS...ha...
and I haven't had to coach any other musicians.

I used to play something similar (I had only been playing around 5 years or so) and it worked.

I was told by someone that this was Weldon Myrick. I questioned that at the time. It's nice to have a definite answer.

Thanks for posting that tab. I can hear where he's playing it but it's his flawless attack and technique that makes a relatively simple solo stand out so.

He was a marvelous player.
