As mentioned in a previous post – I had the chance to meet Duane Eddy and see him play at the Deke Dickerson Guitar Geek Festival. Of course, I brought along my copy of “Have ‘Twangy’ Guitar, Will Travel” for Duane to autograph. This album was a *huge* influence on me – days after getting the record I put a Bigsby vibrato on my Gibson ES-335 and have been twangin’ away ever since. Autograph reads: “To Mel, Keep on Twangin’ Your friend, Duane Eddy”
This record now graces the entry to my “studio”!
