    I like this guy - no pedals and lubes the nut and saddles with motor oil...

    Last time I saw Tab he was driving a pickup truck with three rows of seats...swamp lemo, and his tele looked a lot newer. Love the tone he's getting in this song! And what a great song!

    I think he got rid of his Cajun Lemo truck. He rides in a large motor home now I believe. Lives in a very large home here in Houma as well. Seems like a good guy. Don’t know him personally though.

    I watched the Rig Rundown. He reminds of Bonamassa in that he seems a little weird when he's being asked questions. He also has his fiddle setup like JB, high action. You gots to be a really good musician to play high action that articulately. Until today, I'd not heard of this guy, which kind of surprises me. I like his playing and he seems like a cool dude. Anyone who plays without peddles, and makes awesome sound is my kinda player. It's amazing that all the great players I've ever heard in an interview all love old, well worn in guitars and amps. Now y'all know I'm certainly not a good player, but I do have a story. After Pesky bought an Epi Dot, I followed suit. Found a used one on GC (Lefty) that was listed as in "fair" condition. I think I've had it for 4 years now? They hit the nail on the head. This thing has been played a ton, and i have to say, it's a sweet sounding guitar. All stock, with lots of love. The only thing that kind of bugs me, the neck!!!! Whew, it's 59 like, as in half a baseball bat, and I don't have big hands. Still, i love playing my DOT. Thanks for the heads up on Tab, Sam and Tobi. I'm a fan. Happy Weekend to all.
