A rollicking hootenanny of a good time from the first snare hit - and Johnson’s right there with a tip of the hat to both Chet Atkins and Buck Owens’ Buckaroos. We’re talkin’ smart-alecky chicken-pickin’ and rockabilly with a dash of jazzy chords for good measure. Fun stuff.
Eric Johnson says:
“I’ve been working on this one for a while, playing it live, so I decided to bring it in and see if it would work out. I’m playing a Strat on it, on the fast picking stuff. I’ve tried playing parts like that on a Tele, but they always sound better to me on a Strat.”
“My friend Steve Hennig came in and played some guitar on it, as well. He played on Steve’s Boogie on Ah Via Musicom.
“Actually, there’s a version of this song on the live Anaheim DVD. I worked on it a while, but not a crazy amount of time. I did a number of passes and comped them all together. I used a couple of Twin Reverbs, and they gave me a really cool sound.”
