  1. Love the theme song! Reminds us of the theme from the Andy Griffith Show! (Yeah I’m that old I guess.).
    Always great info Zac! Thanks!

  2. Note: The Celestion Vintage 30 from Suffolk, England is no longer available. The “New” Celestion Vintage
    30 “International” is a Chinese import.

  3. I like the theme song but can't figure out the final chord. I know it's a Bb minor or 7th or 13th or something.

  4. I set up my guitars as you do. No measuring. All guitars are different. I did purchase a set of nut files 9-42. I wish fender used quarter sawn for necks. I never had to adjust my Gibson's seasonally. In new England I had to reset the necks on my fenders twice each year. Arizona seems better for my tele. Dry all the time.

  5. Another great video Zac buddy & thanks for all the info on the  intro & ending licks on Ooh Las Vegas which has always been one of my favourite tunes…Also thanks for the mention I was tickled by that….Regards Tony B.

  6. I just installed new top strings- .012, .016, .020(plain) they're Thomastiks, and they put out like a you-know- what. Who was it that said, 'bigger string-bigger sound?' I know someone said that.

  7. Hi Zac, thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and advice, you have so much to give. I just wanted to say that your intro tune is very similar to Guthrie Trapp’s approach for learning to solo over chords, in other words outlining the chords. I have been playing a similar lick to build technique for a longtime now and it has really helped heaps. Triad up and Major down then cycling through 1,4 and 5. Keep up the great work mate, love your approach and dedication, I’ll start working on “Oh Las Vagas” today. Cheers Marty from Melbourne.

  8. Thanks again Zac. Always thought you were covering some obscure lick with your into. Awesome to find it was basically therapy. A real talent man Your sessions are the best. Keep up the good work. Also always cool to hear a Gram mention.

  9. Hi Zac, have you tried the Eminence George Alessandro 12 inch speaker? I put one in my 74 DR after trying a lot and that really works for me. Not expensive like the V30 as well. Would love to see a video about the Boss DD-2 and how that works for you 🙂

  10. Hi Zac,greets from Spain,i´d like to ask you about your sound, i´ve a DRBF from 1965, and i´m looking for the best speaker, now i´ve a weber 12f125 speaker and after trying so many speakers i think its ok, now i want to change my valves, i want to put NOS,any recommendations?,I´m a tele and Lp gold top player.Love your videos!

  11. Thank you so much for making these, Zac. I really enjoy the information and hearing your perspective. I also appreciate the fact that although you work with some of the biggest names in the business, you always come across as genuine, humble, polite and a truly nice guy.

    And thanks to you, I now have a Nobels ODR-1 parked on my pedalboard. Thank you for raising the awareness of a fantastic and affordable tone shaping tool.

  12. Great video! Thanks for sharing the intro lick. I’m learning it now. I really appreciate the fact that you use clean language, no gimmicks and no blaring noisy music. Maybe I’m getting old or maybe this is just a really great channel! Thanks so much for the hard work you put into each video.

  13. Enjoyed this Zac! What is your opinion of the Weber 12F150 speaker? I have one in my 1976 Deluxe Reverb amp.

  14. Zac I can't say it enough- "I love your videos!" A buddy of mine is looking for a "new" guitar and likes Tele's. Where can we find a Dan'o caster? Or, can you please give me a few boutique builders that you would recommend-?

  15. great channel man!you like some cool players,JDSimo Pete Anderson Stuart Smith excelllent stuff these people are great players and although relatively unknown by many are well loved by some…

  16. Stumbled on ask Zac a few days ago, this and the tone lounge stuff absolute quality. Keep up the good work, love your enthusiasm, knowledge, passion and respect for those you honour.

  17. Thanks a lot for the lesson! One of my favorite tunes to sing to and now I can play the lick! Gram Parson was such a cool American songwriter and his voice had unique character. Seriously never get bored listening to his record, add Emmylou Harris and James Burton, and the rest is history.

  18. I find it's always more interesting if the instructor plays the piece he's teaching completely, at speed first. Give me something to shoot for. That's just me. Otherwise very good.

  19. Thats good to know about the neck p'up. I noticed that my Squier Tele's neck p'up came slanted closer to the treble strings. I was intending to level it out one day, but now I won't bother. Thanks.

  20. Yeah I love the swing feel in the intro. I picked it up right away and I know what you mean about the pinky strength. It took me a day or so to be able to do it cleanly, but I've got it down pretty well now.

    I'm going to have to learn those Burton licks now. Seems a lot more doable now that you've broken it down into digestible bits. Thanks.

    Also, could I suggest an episode on Clarence White and the history of B-benders? I think that would make a great episode.
