My new Amistar Style 1 Square Neck Tricone

My new Tricone (Amistar Style 1 Square Neck). I did some adjustments in the setup to bring out the best of this instrument. I've written this tune 'Moody Waters' in the Jazzy Gm7 tuning. Hope you like it.

Great tune/playing! I really like that tuning as well, especially when you play the E on the high string (I've always had a weakness for m6 chords). Very well done.

Thanks a lot leftyguitarman and Steve! I got this instrument in the summer and played around with it till now and this came out. It’s just another animal than the dobro. Originally I am a dobro player and part of the blues duo ‘The Mudbirds’ but the Tricone is such a wonderful resonator with a totally different voice. It is very suitable for playing Blues and Jazz stuff. I'm afraid that I once will need deeply a vintage National Square Neck.....

Very nice playing--and a great sound in that guitar!

What is the tuning breakdown--low to high? I'm not familiar at all with a Gm7 tuning. . .

Thanks! The tuning is: Gm7 - DGDFBbD, low to high. Check out also Tom Doughty's 'Your Picture Has Faded'.

Lordy, that was one of the most interesting pieces of music to come out of some steel I have heard on a long time. I listened to it all the way through which for me is a not that common.

Nice!

I have come back to this thread like 15 times since this was posted to hear it again and again. I really dig from 1:28 to about 2:00. Sounds so uniquely awesome! I love it. :mrgreen:
