Man, that guy could play!

I had a couple of Les Paul’s over the years. I always liked the fingerboard better than, say, a Stratocaster.

“Man, that guy could play!”

A sentiment well worth repeating. Not to mention his innovative work with multi-tracking and other recording techniques we hear and take for granted every day we listen to modern radio.

Unfortunately, I never owned a Les Paul. Far too expensive. Except for my acoustic 12 string Gibson, most of my guitars have been beat-up and generic pawn shop specials.

I did get to play a few over the years, mostly in guitar shops or with friends, and I always loved the feel and clean tones. Very nice. A luxury guitar. Kind of like a Mercedes.

I forgot about the multi-tracking. Don’t know why, as I was fascinated with that in my early years. Stuff like that Sergeant Peppers was record on 4 track, I believe. Two of them actually. They loaded up one with the rhythm section and then dumped all that onto one track of the other and filled up the three remaining tracks. And then eight track came out a year later.

In the 70s I bought a Les Paul Standard new. I could afford that back then and it wasn’t as expensive as a Custom. I had a Custom, but I bought it used. Right now all I have is an Ibanez acoustic, but I only play for fun.

Just watch his fingers in that video one more time. He makes it look so easy. That’s the sign of a true professional. Amazing.
