Here's a song that my old picking buddy and true friend Eddie and I recorded around 1990. I had a cheap Strat copy and played an original riff for him. He heard it once and we recorded this live on a boom box cassette recorder. he played a Carvin guitar through a Carvin tube amp. This is the only song I have recorded of us playing. He passed away in 2008 ans he is sorely missed.
@ Wes Carl - Yep. I wouldn't take anything for it. Thanks!
@Kevin - You are correct my friend. Thanks!
@Jeff - He sure did. Thanks!
@ Silent Jim - Great words! Thank you! He'd appreciate the comparison to Ernie.
wow eddie sure knew how to let it rip!
Thanks Roadkill. Eddie's music would have been a gift to the world had he ever been "discovered". He only got better from this point. He was a gem.
Mike. Thanks for letting us into what must be a very precious memory for you. That is a lovely bit of music and a really nice tribute to someone who was obviously a very good player.
Thanks James! I've kept the cassette for years and a friend at the local music store bounced it onto a cd for me today. Eddie's first name was James, by the way and he could rock a wah pedal kinda like another James we know lol.
Thank you Uncle John. Eddie would have loved the cigar box guitar movement. He could whoop out a Bic cigarette lighter and play some wicked slide on a regular six-string. I can only imagine what he would have done on a CBG.
thats great you have music you made documented that long ago, and of an old friend that is no longer with you, may he rest in peace!, great post!!!
RIP Eddie. Nice sounds, Mike and gorgeous photos.
Thank you Tom. Eddie was a great player and a pleasure to know.
