Every now and then I break out the slide and I wonder how does he do that?
That was great! Thanks for the post. As much as I enjoyed the music it drove home the need to practice more.
Nobody better than Derek Trucks on slide. Of course he grew up at the feet of the Allman Brothers Band and Duanne Allman.
I think the Tedeschi Trucks Band (with his wife Susan Tedeschi, a modern day Bonnie Raitt) is one of the best bands out there right now.
Check out Derek's work on this song.
That is one of my absolute all time favorites! Here's is the performance I'm partial to. .
I absolutely love that song!
When you see them play live, that song just fills the air with goodness.
Every time I watch that video I find myself trying to figure out who autographed Susan Tedeschi's tele.
I was watching a rig rundown on the band and Derek's guar tech says he doesn't use stage monitors of any sort, that's why he went from Super Reverbs to those custom Alejandro's, they're basically a 50 watt Super
As favor I did...
You are a great humanitarian
Thanks for all you do.
LOL If I send you one of my guitars would you autograph it for me! ;-)
Don't... You're just encouraging him.
This my favorite version of "Midnight", but only because I was standing right next to the cameraman (next to the guy in the white hat clapping at the end). Such a great band!
I have took say that I've never heard a bad version of that song yet
I don't think I'll ever hear that tune often enough. It's my favorite T/T song, by a long shot.
For me it's a toss up between that and Tedeschi's rendition of Angel From Montgomery... Technically she did that before TT, but still... Her voice was just made for that song
Yeah, that's a strong contender. I actually cover "Angel" but for me that song will always sound like Bonnie Raitt when it's playing in my head. My version is more like the John Denver cover (not surprisingly).
That's a bit of a stretch. But I do like to help out struggling musicians when I can. On the plus side, it does seem like she is getting a few more bookings. It's all good...
My uncle, when mad, would say "dang". When I was 9 years old, I had Rheumatic Fever, and had to stay home for three months. They sent a very old, tall, fat, lady teacher to my house, who was extremely righteous. One day I said, "dang", after giving an incorrect answer, and she exploded! "Well, just come out with it! God Dam it! It is a sin to use that word! You are calling upon the Lord to condemn". She then left our house, in a huff and a puff, and they sent a different teacher the next day. Such memories.
