Don Rich--Telecaster Master: An Appreciation
Here are a few of my favorite Don Rich guitar instrumentals, musical renditions the lead guitarist for Buck Owens performed with The Buckaroos (backup band for Buck Owens, of course).

All selections from various albums released by The Buckaroos.

"Chaparral"--from the lp "A Night on the Town with Buck Owens' Buckaroos," 1968:

"Aw Heck"--from the lp "Anywhere USA," 1969:

"Chicken Pickin'"--from the lp "The Buck Owens' Buckaroos Strike Again," 1967:

"Happy-Go-Lucky-Guitar"--from the lp "America's Most Wanted Band," 1967:

"Buckaroo"--Credited to Buck Owens and His Buckaroos; from the lp "The Instrumental Hits of Buck Owens and His Buckaroos," 1965. To date, "Buckaroo" remains the last instrumental ever to hit #1 US Billboard Country (in 1965):

"Tim-Buck-Too"--from the lp "Anywhere USA." 1969. An acoustic piece:

After years of playing everything but a Tele, mine is scheduled to arrive Thursday. Should I paint it like Donís?

I think I must.

Steve Earle played "Buckaroo" on his Sirius/XM radio show this weekend, which had a TV music shows theme. I will admit to learning about Buck, Roy and Grandpa Jones from Hee Haw.....
