    Default Ripley On a GMW Tele

    A friend of mine insisted I try out his GMW Tele. I'm normally not a huge fan of Teles, but I figured "what the hell"...
    Turns out it's a great playing and sounding guitar! Here's some passages from "Ripley"...

    Awesome stuff Jimi!
    The Tele sound fits this tune perfect. It's got that light chiming quality. Cool stuff.
    I've gotta sit down and learn this tune. I've dabbled here and there when couch jamming, but want to learn it beginning to end. Did you just nail it by ear, or did you find a tab somewhere?

    I've never come across a tab for it, J. Truthfully, I had been playing wrong for years. I finally decided to just sit down and try to get it right. Whether I did or not is debatable since there are alternate positions to play some of the passages in!
