Did you see how much Brad has wore his Tele down.

Bet he plays all the time...

That $3700 gets you the Cab too, but still not cheep for sure!

he's good enough, but that whole 'master of the telecaster' thing is way much. his studio musicians are better than he is. then people rave about his tone, he uses 30,000 dollars worth of equipment to record his guitar, i hope it sounds good.

gotta admit though, he has good tastes in equipment. but from what i can tell he has very talented people breaking their neck to give him custom made equipment, so i don't know if it's his tastes or the people making it.

Of course they are. But compared to similar pretty boy artists that play guitar (keith urban, john mayer, etc.), this guy has some serious chops. (Not to say that they are not very good, because they are.)

I know some people blow it out of proportion, as he is a pretty basic country guitarist by professional standards, but he is definitely better than just "good enough".

i think that is what hurts me, is the people who blow it out of proportion. everytime i here that 'master of the telecaster' thing, i just think of the Hellecasters and groan to myself. that, and i don't think i ever saw him really play, just a little solo here and there (not more than 2 bars or so) and don't get what the big hype is about.

is there some song he did that got him the rep?

John Mayer has some mad chops. He just chooses not to show it in most music he plays. I'm not a fan of his music for the most part but the guy is a phenomenal guitarist. I'm not sure about Urban but I'd be willing to bet he's better than he seems on records.

And I agree with gumbi. Master of the Telecaster is extreme. Everyone knows that's Danny Gatton.

And Paisley is a professional. He should be compared to other professionals.

very much so, gatton is a straight monster. but i guess yet another thing that tickles my mind is Paisley is surrounded by great talent and professional peers that are just more impressive. if i got famous (don't worry, won't happen anytime soon based on my playing), and someone started labeling me as 'king anydamnthing' i'd tell them to stick it up their ass and then start rattling off all the people that bury me.

what kinda person would accept the title 'master of the telecaster' knowing full well the talent out there?

That is definitely nice tone for sure. Thanks for sharing. He is not my kind of guitarist but I appreciate what he does.

He just kinda rips country leads. Throttleneck got him a grammy for best instrumental.

[droolz while waiting to load], he does have good gear...

god have you ever seen his recording setups? his mics and preamps he uses... i bet his recording setup is more attractive to studio nuts than his guitar gear is attractive to guitar freaks, which says a bunch.

edit: @jhackey... ah, that puts things in perspective a bit better, awards do help with public opinion. maybe a fan could recommend a song though, something that showcases his talents more?

I agree both of them are immensely talented and can play. But paisley's style requires more skill imo. I have never played country though so I can't ready comment, but I took a look at one of his tabs one time and thought .

And I don't listen to as much country lately gumbi but listening to some of the guys singles he does quite a bit of soloing and I always find it impressive. Some of his songs are quite entertaining too, and the way he blends old school country playing with the new age pop country thing is most impressive. Check out the song called online(?)

At first I just through that it sounds great, but that the tone in this clip has more to do with the old “tone is in the fingers”. Then he turned on the Z-verb. Damn…

i agree...big fan of his Ranch stuff. his song Rollercoaster is pretty cool too. i once saw a youtube video of early Keith doing "Devil Went Down to Nashville". it was a pretty cool take on the song.

Brad is a great player, and that amp is perfect for his style...

The stock Celection Blue and Gold together, are going to do well with Tele's.
He seems to cut through fine.

I'm sorry but any professional musician had damn well better be phenomenal. If you don't have to work 9-5 to fund your guitar hobby then you have no excuse for not practicing non-stop. Its the same in any trade; if that's what you do all day then you get a feel for it that people who can't dedicate that much time to it can't even dream of.

I'm not knocking his skill, he definitely has plenty, I'm just saying that him jangling off some runs to demo an amp doesn't demonstrate real skill. At that level its more impressive to see great composition than actual technical playing... At least in my opinion. His composition? Meh.

Just to throw this into the ring on the whole "master of whatever" discussion, I saw him on Austin City Limits and he joked between songs (something to the effect of) "I can remember seeing all my heros like SRV on this show, and all I can say is....................wow, you guys have lowered your standards"

On the bummer side, I've heard (at one point anyways) that his tech controls his wah pedal in concert. : /

i certainly think he is better than a lot of other mainstream "guitar gods," i have heard a lot of his stuff, he is certainly better than Dimebag, Zakk Wylde, Kirk Hammet, etc. of course he is no Vai, Sach, or buckethead, but Brad is certainly one of the better guitarists on a major label, especially country.

Well Dang!
To the poster who wanted to know if there is any definitive Paisley guitar stuff out there, pick up his album "Play" and check out the tune Cluster Pluck. Its crazy.
As far as Brad being Master of the Telecaster, I am sure he would be uncomfortable with that. I met him after his show this summer in Toronto and was an absolutely terrific guy. Spent 10 minutes talking guitars and amps with me while most people got 30 seconds. If you get a chance to see him live do so. It is as much a guitar show as it is a music show.
I alos think Brad has a lot in common with Danny Gatton as far as infusing jazz, rockabilly and a seriously twisted sense of humour into their playing.
