She also has a Gretsch amp in some vids.

I know that I may be preaching to the choir, but she sure was special, wasn't she?

She was prolly the beginning of it all.

That's what I call real, as in the real deal. I don't think she had a self conscious bone in her body.

I'd rank those YouTube vids with the greatest performances I've ever seen.

No Gretsch, but the solo on this slays me. No pedals required to get a rock tone, amigos, just turn it up and hit it hard.

Great! So much is about her right hand
