Hello everyone, I hope you enjoy this guitar lesson of "Texas Flood". The lesson is played live with a backing track that I created. I played the bass and the drums were played by an awesome drummer Mr. Steve DiVirgilio - thanks (great job Steve)! I would like to give a very special thanks to Chris Walters at GHS Strings. Chris informed me that the set SRV used was the Nickel Rockers 1300 set, gauges 011-58. He was kind enough to send me several sets of the Pure Nickel ROLLERWOUND Low Tune (011-58)....and that's what you are hearing. The guitar is tuned to E Flat and they really do capture some awesome tones! Stevie Ray was one of my all time favorites and there's only one SRV. The amp and cab on camera was not used on this lesson. The only amp used on this video off camera was a Marshall JCM 900 SL-X 100 Watt. The cab off camera is a Marshall bottom cab loaded with Celestion Heritage Series G12M (my all time favorite speaker). The Mics used are a Heil PR30 and PR40 (I use these Mics exclusively in this combination for all my recordings..the quality of the Heil is exceptional)! The only effects that were used is an awesome Robert Keeley modded Ibanez TS-808 Tubescreamer (thanks Robert!) and one of my favorite effects an Orbit Electronix completely reworked Echoplex. The guitar is a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Axcess loaded with DiMarzio Bluesbucker pickups. I use Accusound Cables, Peterson Tuners, Essential Sound Products power cables, AF Designs Straps and last, but not least, which is also very important, I use a Dunlop 2.0 pick. I truly hope this info helps just in case someone likes and wants to achieve this tone. Thanks for watching!
