Bonnie Raitt’s extraordinary guitar playing is usually executed on Brownie, a mid-60’s Fender Stratocaster with a neck from a slightly later era. As with Clapton’s Blackie (Clapton also had a Brownie – not the same guitar as Raitt’s), the name lacks imagination, most likely due to reluctance of the artist to giving it an actual name.
Want to learn a tune? Well, the first thing I’d like to point out is that I believe it to be a course of action-a process developed in layers, some of which seemingly happens on its own, evolving with time and by its sheer existence over time. In other words, the tunes can grow up on their own -even while you’re sleeping. Kind of creepy isn’t it!
