(Nov 24, 2012): Lonnie Mack – Where There’s A Will There’s A Way

From the 1963 debut album, The Wham of that Memphis Man!  There are not many guitar players that have part of the instrument named after them.  Mack, one of the true early virtuosos (check out “Chicken Pickin’“), made so much out of his Gibson’s flying V pitch-bending tremolo arm on “Wham!” — the a-side of the second single off this LP — that they became known as the “whammy bar”.
