Classic Vibe Tele and the Wave Cannon for a Ry Cooder Style Blues Tone

In this blog post I’m going to show you how I got this really cool bluesy slide guitar tone kinda in the style of Ry Cooder. This is a melody I’ve been playing for a while and I thought it sounded really cool when adding some effects to it such as vibrato. I feel the amp vibrato really gives it a cool sound when combined with the Wave Cannon.

Equipment Used:

Classic Vibe Tele
Fender 1966 Vibrolux
Caroline Guitar Company Wave Cannon

  1. John,
    Wow – beautiful sound and, as always, beautiful playing and technique. I closed my eyes for a moment and thought I might be listening to Ry Cooder himself. That tone is the closest I’ve ever heard to the famous “Cooder-caster” that Ry plays. Great job – as always. Thanks!
