Orginal music from these steels

Postby (loverickbass) » Sun Dec 07, 2014 9:36 pm

Where can I listen to some music that was made with RIC steels back in the 30s?

Not quite what you asked for, but here's a video of Rickenbacker bakelite instruments from the 30s.

I was thinking they played a lot of Hawaiian and western swing back in day. I just don't know who was popular RIC players.

Hi.

If you want to hear some 40s 50s Rickenbacker Lap Steel playing being done by probably the finest player today
go to You Tube and listen to Timi Abrigo, he plays all the old Rogers Ohana melodies such as Moana Chimes and others, Timi
is only a young man but his harmonics are second to none, you should also seek out albums of David Feets Rogers, Bennie Rogers.
Timi was taught to play by Ronald Kanahele a cousin of the Rogers family, Ron also played fine Rickenbacker steel, Ron passed
away a couple of years ago, another Rick player who has also recently passed was Fred Lunt, his playing can be seen in a video with
Pancho Graham also on You Tube. hope this helps.

Kanui.

Kimo Delgado plays amazing stuff on a Ric B6 bakelite. He studied with Jerry Byrd, so he gets it right from the source. I'm in love with his tone right now. Kimo's website is http://www.kimohawaiiansteelguitar.com and his album Kimo-Therapy is also available on iTunes

+++ for Bobbie Ingano. Check out his CD "Steel Reflections". On it he uses a 7 string Rickenbacker Frying Pan guitar, a 7 string Can Opus & a 6 string Fender Champion
