Johnny Johnny Winter Picture Winter

Johnny Winter's acoustic slide songs sound best on metal body resonator guitars. Judging from the covers of his albums he played a National tricone on The Progressive Blues Experiment and Nothin' But The Blues and a National single cone model on Third Degree. They sure sound good on my '37 National Duolian. I agree completely with his opinion on Nationals:

I fell in love with that nasty sound. It reminds me of a garbage can with wire on it.It's got all that metal ring to it, a real bluesy sound.

He usually plays with a thumb- and a fingerpick and wears a metal slide on his little finger.
