Pick Like Jeff Tweedy

Jeff Tweedy Signature SG

I had the first Uncle Tupolo album. Ron Byrd gave it to me a long time ago on an Austin trip. He said, "I think you will like this." I remember late night forced listening sessions where I made friends listen to the ablum - "You have to listen to this! It's the future!" Sometimes that went well and sometimes not so well. To that point I was a pretty hard core acoustic player. Jeff Tweedy's electric guitar playing always grabbed me when not a lot of other pickers did back. I'm still putting amps together looking for that tone. Now all of us can have the guitar part of that equation. Gibson has released an SG Tweedy signature guitar. Nice.
