Saw you last night with Hot Tuna. Love the sound of your semi-hollow/archtop. I didn’t get a good look at it, but wanted to get some additional for. Brand, model, year, modifications, etc. Great show. Thanks.

Hey Steve, I've seen you and some others position your amp on its side on stage during a show. Is there a specific reason one might do that? Anything tone-wise? I've noticed you place a head on top of,...
We've met several times before, back in the day. The Cotati Caberet, with the Mix, and also as sound tech at Studio KAFE in Santa Rosa. Also, we have a lot of mutual friends, including Richie Blue and Galene...
How about we do your birthday in Fayetteville again next year?
George's is such a great venue, i would love to do it again. Silly question, but when a room is listening that intently, do you consciously go for more subtle approaches to phrasing and volume?
I was wondering what amps you typically use- I have been listening to some of the Zero material and your later albums- I really like your lead tone with the clean Jerryish thing happening. I am thinking Fender, or...
First of all, thank you for playing such honest and truly from the soul music.
I have been playing the same kind of music for as long as I can remember. Although not on the same level. Even in 8th...
I have all way been told that light les Paul’s are
the only ones worth bothering with.
I just bought one 11.5lb and it is the best
Les Paul I have ever owned.
So do I have this weight thing backwards?
Hello Steve! Tal here,
I have this discussion with piano tuners and various musicians, but when it comes to guitarists it’s a shoulder shrug usually, like it’s just an inherent part of our instrument that the interval of a third...
over the last year or so I keep going back to the Missing Man Formation videos. The sound is so unique.... bobby's bass and your guitar meld so well. Very emotional. That Strat looks unique too, what configuration is...
Any chance Earl Cate will sit in one night? If so, peek into your crystal ball and enlighten me with the date. Much Appreciated! Miss seeing you in Fayetteville as often as when the highly esteemed Harold Wieties was...
Hey there, Steve -
Many thanks for years of great tunes and vibes.
I know at one point you were an occasional Hartman Ge fuzz user ... how about these days?
And: you've never been one to get lost in the...
Hey Steve! I recently got a lap steel and was wondering about yours!
What are some turnings you use? Any specific tone bars or slides that you prefer?
What string gauges you find work best? Any beginner lap steel mistakes i...
What kind of pickups are in your explorer. What are you looking for from your pickups? Flat response, a little color? I feel like Ive got to the point where Im making little steps as far as better "tone"....
Hey Steve! This might be a basic/oft asked question, but for the sake of clarity, as well as compartmentalizing in the new forum, I was wondering what strings you're running on your current guitars these days? —mainly the primary...
I noticed you were using a big ol' clear triangle (v-pick?) at the Sweetwater run back in February. At OCF it looked like a standard 351 shape but still that transparent material. Do you have a preferred...
