Dave Mason - Only You Know & I Know
Okay, Dave Mason was underrated, that's true, and this is a great song, sure, with a couple of nice covers out there, but today I'm mostly concerned with tone.
Dave played the Gibson Thunderbird, which is itself an underrated guitar. it was never popular for some reason, maybe the price was a bit high. The Thunderbird used mini-Humbucking pickups, it might have been the only guitar to do so. They had a very particular sound, which is evident in this song. I like it a lot. The electric guitar chording in this song sounds just great. The melody parts do too. All very Thunderbird.
Don't you think?
