Neil Young with "Old Black" and a cranked up Tweed Deluxe

Just wanted to share this with you.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4edwbmjLokY

Killer Version of "Rocking in a free world" Also check out the Beatles Cover. Just amazing.

Neil is the man, still rocking with just a nice guitar straight into a nice amp.

Re: Neil Young with "Old Black" and a cranked up Tweed Deluxe

Nice, now if I can come up with some cash to go see Crazy Horse in Chicago. Neil aint coming any closer to St. Louis this time, and I bet this will be the last time to get to see the Horse.

I know I'm in the minority, but I never cared for Neil or his music very much.

Re: Neil Young with "Old Black" and a cranked up Tweed Deluxe

Thanks for the video.
Nice version and a cool DC Junior from the second guitarist.


Here is a version played with Pearl Jam, musically its not as good feels a bit rushed but Neil is playing Mike McGreadys original 59 Burst.

Great clip ! Thanks for posting.
I saw Neil live in 2008 and that concert is very high on my all time greatest list. He gave it all and touched my soul.

Not so many pedal's.

This is what I've read or been told over he years.

BF1 Flanger hardly used.
Mu-Tron Octave Divider used with MXR 118
Alesis Microverb hardly used.

His signal usually goes through tube Echoplex and Fender Reverb unit.

The 'Whizzer' is used to control these effect's and alter amp setting's
on the fly.


Le Noise tour quite different..no whizzer.
Bass pedal's (Roland/Korg) and Korg SDD3000,..and a bunch of old Tweeds.

Not quite true... the board controls the Whizzer primarily, as well as a flanger, Boss delay, and perhaps reverb. But only very occasionally. I've never heard him use anything that sounded like one of those effects before that I can remember.

His sound is mostly the combination of the old tweed Deluxe, along with a Baldwin ss amp and a Magnatone mixed in a little (the other amps are usually hidden inside the "giant Fender" prop amps behind him). The effects are only used for his "freak-out" sound (like "My, My, Hey, Hey" for instance), generally it's just guitar into amp with reverb. The 3 amps are mixed into his own personal monitor system, with the sound of the Deluxe dominating. His setup is detailed on the net, even though he has those few effects they are only used sporadically, in certain songs. All distortion comes from the tweed Deluxe, no OD or distortion pedals are used.

Right, right. The Baldwin is SS?!?! I didn't know that.

Neil's pretty much my all-time favorite musician, for what it's worth. This tone is to die for.

One of my top ten for sure. Whenever I'm at a loss for inspiration he's one of the few I'll go to.

I find his guitar playing very similar to MacLaughlin's "Mahavishnu" personna on Inner Mounting Flame and Birds Of Fire specifically. At times there was so much of the players's personality and heart exposed that all barriers that exist between the studio recording process and the listener are broken down and overcome to the point that you literally feel like you are in a heart to heart, one on one conversation with person through his instrument....it's really overwhelming. It's the pinnacle of communicating through music IMO. Jimi, Miles, and many others could do it but I don't think it has been captured on record with a guitar to a greater level than what is on those first two Mahavishnu records and then some moments with Neil. If I could only know what it's like to spend just spend one minute in that zone that Neil sometimes plays in I think my quest as a musician would be fulfilled.

I know Anders. Heard him play around since he moved here about 20 years ago. Very good songwriter, too.

Re: Neil Young with "Old Black" and a cranked up Tweed Deluxe

Saw Neil and Crazyhorse last night at redrocks- great show, blend of the years, not that much of the new album. Took my ten year old daughter with me who is a budding drummer and whos first drums songs were ohio and down by the river. Her comments_"he's rocking for an old guy", "so that's Neil Young", and "We got to learn Cinnamin Girl". She was also surprised to see so many "old people" smoking dope. "Don't they know better by now?"

The rig was sparse, tweed deluxe, a twin or vox looking thing, and the magnatone. Guitars were old black, goltop copy of old black, white falcon, and D-28.

His old tweed Deluxe is heavily modified from what I have heard.
