He [Ted Bogan] was playing with picks that you put on your fingers and I didn't like that as an accompaniment, so I made him throw them away and I told him I would play the lead and he would play the accompaniment - Carl Martin on hooking up with Ted Bogan (Blues & Rhythm #218 Stompin' In Knox County)

Beautiful Carl!

Very nice. 10 strings? So how is it tuned?

Thanks Richard,
I'm using Lonnie's "fetish" tuning DGDGBE, low to high (but I'm tuned 1/2 step lower)
normal 12-string setup but a B-string and the thin G-string were removed.
Lonnie's typical bends 2nd string fret 5 are much easier this way; the thin G-string causes a too jingly jangly sound when attacked from above with the thumb, hence the removal.
If you double click on the image of the video here, you'll open the Youtube page where you can click for the description (I always try to give some interesting info there)
cheers,
Carl
