Ok, now on to more interesting things....Casey, for one! I don't know how many of you have ever thought about this, or how many actually 'know' this, but I've often wondered exactly what guitars Casey has on tour, and why he plays different ones for different songs... There may be more, but here's what I managed to dig up:
Here's the rundown:
- a 1983 blue Fender Stratocaster for I Got Mine;
- a Paul Reed Smith acoustic and a white Fender Stratocaster for Don't!;
- a Gibson nylon-string guitar for Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman;
- a PRS Starla for It's All Over Now;
- and a PRS 513 for It's My Life.
And for seriously gearheaded Casey James fans, apparently he uses Dunlop Tortex .88 mm guitar picks.
So....now we know! I've always wondered exactly how he chooses what guitar to play with what song.....he is a smart cookie....way more than we probably know!
I couldn't post this without putting some 'pretty' on the page, so here's one to get us all feeling good about it being Monday!! More later......
Many thanks to our talented daydreaminmeme for her cool creations!
Here's a nice sound quality video of Casey and Big Mike's beautiful rendition of "Have you ever really loved a woman"
shot in Milwaukee on the 7-2-10
But what's beyond me is why it's sideways the whole time??? I guess the videographer didn't realize it....oh well, the sound is great and if you tilt your head to the left.....the video is too!! :)
Thanks to TheMusic5Chelb
I can't remember if I've already posted this video or not, because I actually don't remember seeing this particular one. It's a nice front view of Casey performing "Don't in Auburn Hills"
I love the guitar change in the middle of the song....who does that?? Nobody that I've ever seen does that in the middle of the song....it just goes to show you how much Casey is, who he is....he don't follow, or copy anyone!!
Thanks to leajo20 for this nice capture!
I finally found a clip, and it's a short one, of "It's My Life"
with Casey playing guitar! It looks like all the guys, then at the end Katy walks out....and it ends....I wanna see the rest of it....I hope someone posts a full version of it somewhere soon! If anybody comes across it, could you please email it to me?? Thanks yall....
Thanks to hamster783 for sharing!
Wow! I had not seen "Casey's Intro" from this angle....the light show and the sound....omg....and his name in lights on the marquee....it's unbelievable! Check it out!!
