One of the best moments of our life. Deke has open his old memory chest and has just begun to share clips at YouTube as incredibles as this: Here he is playing with the original Lefty Frizzell's Bigsby Guitar, one of our all time favourite tunes, "Just can't live that fast, anymore".
Deke Dickerson says about the clip:
Trying to do justice to the greatest honky-tonk singer of all time...I got to play Lefty Frizzell's original Gibson SJ-200 with Bigsby neck. I was scared to death--not only because of how much the guitar sold for, but also because Lefty Frizzell's ghost is in there...very scary. Merle Haggard bought the guitar--and I would like to apologize to Merle here for putting a 400 dollar pick scratch on the pickguard. Thanks to Retrofret in Brooklyn for letting me play Lefty's guitar while it was in their possession.
