The Tele-man (Neil Cotton)

The guitar man learns a track and layís it down
It is country musicís tell-tale sound
Itís played on a Fender made in the 50s
After a few notes it resonates with me.

The Tele-man is picking the lead so clear and strong
That Telecaster axe adds star dust to the song.
Leo knew his craft when he built his guitar
He also made many Tele-caster stars

Remember Merle Haggardís Working Man Blues
Hot Rod Lincoln was a Jerry Reed tune
Keith Urbanís hit called You Gonna Fly
Bradís & Dollyís song Whiskey Lullaby

The Tele-man is picking the lead so clear and strong
That Telecaster axe adds star dust to the song.
Leo knew his craft when he built his guitar
He also made many Tele-caster stars

Itís big for rockers not just Country
Listen to Keith Richards and John Fogarty

The Tele-man is picking the lead so clear and strong
That Telecaster axe adds star dust to the song.
Leo knew his craft when he built his guitar
He also made many Tele-caster stars

Leo knew his craft when he built his guitar
He also made many Telecaster stars

Good attempt at using BIAB riffs, Neil.
It's difficult because the great BIAB riffs sometimes cut too short.
The trick is to find a lingering note in that chord, cut it and paste it where you want it. ( I presume you have a DAW where you can do that sort of edit)

Sometimes you just have to play it yourself and chop it in.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Vic, Yes not totally satisfied with the riffs but...gives an approximation or sketch.
If it were to be pitched, it would have to be better...thanks for your tips.
I did one copy & paste. Ideally I should look harder for more.
If I were to record this , I have access to some good players., not me. frown

Cool idea, Neil. The Telecaster is a worthy subject for a song. Only thing I noticed was the Brad & Dolly line...that should be Brad and Alison (Krauss) smile
