My tele doesn't know a single country song.
I think I was referring to “vintage.”
Come to think if it, I’m sick of the word “guitar!”
The word “Luthiery” bothers me. I don’t know why. It just does.
Really? This guy would like to know why you take such a narrow view of Teles.
The word "luthier" is bad enough since it often means "barely trained guitar tech".
Well that is 100% Leo's fault. I never could understand how he got those two simple words mixed up like that.
spank suggests a more focussed midrange than snap, and a touch more sustain.
I've also been known to not read the whole thread and then posting the same thing as someone else..
Stupid is as stupid does. And the above is a perfect example. Well spelled out David. Knowledge is good. Lack of knowledge is ignorance.
Or "play", who says play anymore?
or more specifically, referring to other people as "cats".
It's not that I think it's dumb, I actually quite like it but in my mind I'm not qualified to do it, the only people allowed to use this expression are long time seasoned old blues guys.
I did say "for me"
Anyway, the tele is probably the most versatile guitar around, together with ES 335 type guitars. I personally completely disagree with people who think strats are more versatile... But that's just my opinion, and I can barely play a guitar
This is one that bugs me. Any guitar is as versatile as the player. They all have strings, pickups, knobs, and a neck. No guitar is limited by anything but the players lack of imagination.
Another one is "lead" and "rhythm" guitar.
A couple of weeks ago, a guy asked myself and the other guitarist in my band which of us played lead and which played rhythm. My answer was "both".
We just play the guitar. He takes the solo on some songs, I do on others. When were just jamming, we do what ever feels right.
I prefer the term co guitarists.
Bingo. Players are versatile. But like Jeff Beck so aptly says: Strats. No other guitar can do what a Strat can do.
Yeah, every guitar has it's own kinda vibe, and things (hard to dive bomb on a hard tail), but I am just talking about when somebody pigeon holes a guitar; like a Tele is only for country, and other such nonsense.
Country was played on Gibson before Teles.
Then there's the horrors inflicted on Terd Nugget's Byrdlands.
