Comments:

Wanted to do something along the lines of a country rock track. When the backing was recorded I found out that the melody I first had in mind didn't work out at all. Then I got one of my very rare urges to bring the bottle neck. So I did and I had a lot of fun too.

Comments:

I admire guys who really can snap those Tele strings like Brent Mason, Vince Gill and Brad Paisley. While I'm well aware that I'm nowhere near those icons I still can't resist the urge to pick up my Tele every now and then and have a go at it. I recommend you do the same.
