HI Griff, I know you have talked about it before, but the more listen to really good players (people like you, SRV...), the more I hear rakes EVERYWHERE. Most are very subtle. Most of the time (not always) when I try to use a subtle the rake it sounds awful. Big time rakes seem to work ok. I don't know if this is something big enough for an AAP session, but any tips will help.
