Makes me wonder if Earl really pondered what he started and how it grew. He didn't set out to change the world of music when he picked Reuben in a new style, but he did anyway. Must have been crazy for him to think about, I can't imagine having that type of impact on the world. Not many do.
Fun to hear!
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
As to setting out to change the world:
According to historian James Burke, nobody really sets out to "change the world".
They are just looking for an improvement in something which already exists.
See if Burke's "CONNECTIONS" is available on your cable or computer, for some fascinating details.
That's a fine thing to see.
I like the open D tuning.
Listening on my Android phone, I can not tell if all 3 are tuned to open D.
Earl is for certain.
Bela most likely.
Not sure if Tony is.
Magnificent video !
A lot of history there.
Earl sounded like Reuben every time. The other two could have played anything and called it Reuben and I still wouldn't know what they were playing. I must be "Old School"
Bela is in G tuning, including his 5th string, while playing in key of D. And he hits that open 5th string G note a lot while in D chord. That kind of thing bothers me.
Tony is in open D tuning I think.
