Well, that song she's humming, could make my guitar start strumming?

Rory's guitar on "Seems To Me"?

Postby capo » 13 Aug 2016, 21:44

Can someone tell me what guitar Rory may have used on Defenders "Seems To Me"? I'm pretty sure its not The Strat because of the tone. Rory is also using a different style of play and attack than usual. I have a great live version from a boot recorded in Karlsruhe, Germany on Nov. 11th 1987 thats just killer. Anyway, any help with this answer would be great. Peace.

It sounds like a Strat to me, though maybe it's his '58 or 25th anniversary one? There's a bit of slapback echo on the guitar which makes it sound slightly thicker, almost an SRV type sound to me.

Thanks Signals. I love the song, but I always thought Rory was adapting a different playing style unlike his own. And SRV came to my mind too, being similar in tone and style. Not meant as a criticism at all. Rory was just having fun, like his "surf rock" ode "The Watcher".

This is Stratocaster, sure. Maybe with 12'' calibre of strings. Humor from Rory ...showing the great guitar style of SRV. :)
