"Resophonic Rodeo" by Gary Morse

Gary Morse is one of the top working steel guitarists in the world. He has recorded and toured with many big name artists, including Suzy Bogus, Ricky Skaggs, Pam Tillis, Dwight Yoakam and Brooks & Dunn.

This western swing CD grew out of the spontaneous jams that happen when professional musicians are on the bus or warming up backstage before a gig. In those situations, Gary plays a 7 string resonator specially made by for him by master guitar builder Paul Beard.

The squareneck resophonic is usually associated with bluegrass, but the extra string (a middle E) on Gary's guitar makes a G6th tuning that is well suited for western swing. The combination of Bob Wills standards and hot acoustic picking makes this CD a unique pleasure for swing fans. I never thought such sounds were possible on a resophonic! Gary plays fast and hard. His phrasing is perfect, even when the notes are full speed. A few masters can play this well on electric steel, but I doubt that anyone can do better on an acoustic!
