Wow!!! Thanks for posting. One minor complaint - the title of the post "Jack Pearson plain with some soul" Is there any other way Jack plays??? Also I like the new G&L ASAT. A new Jack Pearson model? I assume G&L got tired of Jack's association with Gibson and wanted one of their most visible proponents back in the fold? Nice situation for a guitarist to be in being fought over as an endorsee between Gibson and G&L. I sincerely hope Jack is being compesated well. He deserves it. Any comments Upton O'Goode???

Thanks for that!! Jack has some very tasty licks and some excellent vibrato.
Love his new guitar as well. It looks like that model has humbucker pickups.

Chris, the G&L ASAT was given to Jack at about the same time as all of his other G&Ls. He has 3 or 4 G&Ls that he has kept. G&L has sent him many more than that, but he sends back any guitar that he isn't going to use. The ASAT is one he usually uses on sessions, but occasionally plays on shows. As for compensation, Jack receives only product. Neither Gibson or G&L give Jack money or tour support. And it may be because of the "Tascam" effect.
When Jack recorded "Step Out", he recorded it on a Tascam four track cassette recorder. Someone sent a copy of the disc to Tascam's US office. There were quite a few calls to Jack's number from the Tascam folks. Most of them went like this: "I was told that you recorded this on our four track cassette." "Yes, I did." "No, really, what else did you use?" "Nothing but the four track and a drum machine." No, really." "Yes, really." The last call came from the VP for American operations, but it was pretty much the same. I and a friend of mine contacted Tascam about some help on Jack's shows and we were shocked (but should not have been) at what we were told. In a nutshell:
"We would love to help Jack. However, we feel that it would not be a positive for Tascam. It is obvious to us that he could use any device and record a sparkling product and that's the down side for Tascam. Someone buys a Tascam because we show them Jack's work. They take the product home and they will never get the results that Jack does. Customer returns the product for refund and tells friends that it didn't work like it's promised to."
Sum it up with the quote from Jack's older brother Stanley; "Boy, you're going to have to make it look a little harder than that."

The thread title is a little misleading....like at times Jack doesn't play with soul. He's got more soul is his right pinky than a lot of players do in all ten digits.

Wow...nice vibrato (or as my brother explained to me, that by definition, it's actually tremelo), nice controlled feedback, nice blues runs, fluid, dexterous playing...beautiful Tele, beautiful tone, great voice. Thank you for posting this! Jack, imo, is underrated.


actually, what my bro told me that a tremelo bar actually produces a vibrato.


Thats right. What I am taking about is the vibrato produced from the left hand without the bar. The use of the bar is for players who cant do it by the fingers on the left hand.
Clapton and BB King are also masters at left hand vibrato

That's what I'm talking about. Funny as heck, Mike. Not trying to doubt you, but did Jack not actually purchase his black strat G&L that he used with the ABB and is most commonly associated with? Whatdaya mean? I can't sound like Jack if I use Tascam??? I want my friggin' money back! ROTFLMAO! Hey Mike could you ask Jack the next time he sends a G&L or a Gibson back, how 'bout sending it to me instead? Thx for the 411.

Chris, to the best of my memory, G&L gave Jack the ASAT and the Silver Legacy (the only guitar he ever took with him on the road with the Brothers, didn't even take a spare. The acoustic he played belonged to the band) at about the same time. He did not want to take the ASAT out with the ABB, he wanted to save it's tone for recording. Jack got his G&L endorsement while working for Gibson at a summer NAMM show back in the early 90's. He was playing at the Gibson booth when an older man started asking him about the guitar he was holding. After a few exchanges, the man asked Jack how he liked the guitar and what would he do with it when he took it home. Jack gave his critique and told the man that he had to give the guitar back at the end of his shift. The man asked Jack if he had a card, Jack said "no, but I'll write down my address and phone number for you." A few weeks later, UPS delivered 5 or 6 guitars to Jack's house. That's how his endorsement got started, no money has ever exchanged hands. That's the way Jack is. If you make a very good product, Jack is glad to use it and help get the word out. If not, Jack will send it back and no amount of anything will get him to use it.
Hai, yeah he really recorded it on a cassette deck. The next two discs were recorded on 8 track ADAT machines. Not exactly the easiest way to record either. His recording is like his learning to play, he was poor and had to get by without the toys that other players had. It's a blast to watch Jack in the studio creating effects without outboard devices. He taught himself to get a wah-wah efect without a wah-wah peddle. He can play delay and decay because he didn't have (or could afford) a delay unit. Producer asks for a certain effect and the other players start trying to guess what setting they need to dial up. Jack looks back through the glass and says "You mean this sound?"
Jack and Reese Wynans play 3rd and Lindsley tonight at 7pm. There should be at least one taper present.
Come join us!

The response from Tascam was almost stupid....

Although I can partially understand their "logic".....

Hopefully I can coincide a trip to Nashville with a live Jack Pearson show. Might be taking a roadtrip to Austin to search for a job, and if Jack's website indicates when and where he is playing there, I'll definitely try to make it.


You won't be sorry

Man, this reminds me of the many times we had Jack here, often with Jimmy. Hearing him lay back against the wall at Chestnut Station or 2nd Street, just wear it out to real fans in an intimate setting. Fortunately Susea captured some of it. Almost seems like a dream.

Started daisy-chaining the youtube clips of Jack playing various styles with various instruments and various musicians. Holy chit, the man can play. What was I thinking not seeing him play with the Brothers so many years ago?
