RHYTHM GUITARIST EXTRADINAIRE!
« on: May 28, 2012, 04:31:49 pm »
Noel Squitieri gets full credit for this STICKY TOPIC.   Let's
use the word 'integral' to describe founding member Don
Wilson's contribution to The Ventures overall identity. 

And we're not just talkin' technique here but also the
equipment used over the years to achieve that driving
'unmistakeable' sound!

Here's something interesting. It's the amp Don used for some of his most famous rhythm guitar work.

Jon also told me that Don said to him he was just lucky to have the exact palm shape necessary to produce the unique plam-muted glissando sound he's known for, that earned him the name, Tiki Tiki Tiki San, in Japan.
