Will Fly Electric guitar as a solo instrument (56* d) RE: Electric guitar as a solo instrument 27 Nov 18

A few years ago, I came across the guitar playing of Richard Fontenot from Louisiana, who played traditional Cajun tunes on an electric guitar with loads of reverb on it. I was so struck by the sound, I had a crack at one of the tracks: "Allons a Lafayette".

The guitar is a slimline, hollow-body made to my specs by luthier Ian Chisholm. I'd come across a DeArmond acoustic guitar pickup I played in the 1960s and 1970s and stuffed in a drawer many years ago. I had the guitar built around the pickup! The amp used in the recording is a Roland Cube - with loads of reverb...
