Easy rider blues by Texas Alexander
« on: April 01, 2018, 11:52:03 AM »
Hi, I'm new here!

In my youth I listened a lot to country blues and played some guitar too. I still do, but not quite as much for many decades now, as I've turned more to my own norwegian folk music.

But I've got a question:
Who plays guitar for Texas Alexander on Easy Rider blues?

You can read about the discography, and cop the lyrics here:

It's always a good bet to search for a song on the artist's lyric thread, either on the forum or weeniepedia. Likely someone, usually Johnm, will have added the discography.

Hei Salve

I think this is what you're looking for:



Willie Reed and Carl Davis on guitars.

Thank you Wax, J?rn and John.
Willie Reed and Carl Davis are new names to me!

I don't find more recordings of Carl Davis on YouTube, but I find Willie Reed. The other recordings of him there sounds quite different to me. Not as tight and in tune etc. as on Easy Rider (?)
