Jesse Ed Davis - Unsung Hero of the Telecaster - Ask Zac 60

April 17, 2020

Jesse Edwin Davis made a huge impact on the guitar during his relatively short career. He influenced Duane Allman to learn slide, was an earlier user of the Leslie/Vibratone on guitar and was a session man for Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, and so many more. Today we pay tribute to Jesse by taking a look at his history, gear, and a key part of his solo on Jackson Browne's "Doctor My Eyes."
