Mr. BANKER was the very last tune we recorded during a 20 hour session with Al Kooper. That day we cut just about every tune we knew...no overdubs. By 2 AM we were pretty high and about out of gas. That's when we cut that tune. And, sure, it sounds real because it's every musician's experience.
Do you have ANY idea how DRUNK we were when we recorded that? We'd recorded about 16 tunes that day...all live in the studio...as a guide for Kooper so he could figure out what tunes would go on the first album. MR BANKER was the last. We was FRIED.
That tune is in E....and I played a '72 Les Paul in E tuning. Two weeks later I traded that guitar for the Strat on which I wrote SWEET HOME...Wow, what a great decision that was.
Q - You said that you played a Les Paul in E tuning. You then went on to say that you traded it for the Strat on which Sweet home was written. Do you know where that Les Paul is today? That would be pretty cool to come across...also, how did you learn to play slide? Any tips?
I don't know where that Les Paul is, but it wasn't a classic guitar at all. I was glad to trade it.
Tips on slide guitar:
1) Practice every day or you'll never be any good. 2) Getting that bottle to perch right above the fret is the biggest obstacle. 3) Once you get that down, you can work on speed. 4) Learn some alternate tunings, but don't forget to practice slide in standard tuning. It's real educational.
shaw: I wonder if Zap is around.I found a guitar someone was throwing out and it has Zapp on the headstock. Turns out its one of those Law Suit era Les Pauls. I'm putting it back together it was only the body & neck, with no hardware but I got all the parts now.

Zap: No relation to me, LOL, but you can gift it to me when you are done restoring it if you like! LOL!

stevecamp: I believe it was was a Warmoth body, aftermarket pickups, an old tele neck.
