Yeah, yeah, it's the old joke: "Guy walks into Jim Irsay's office..." :shock:

Hmm - that photo makes me realize I had my 1/4" jacks wired backwards. My mono out is closer to the mini-toggles! Doh! :oops:

All in fun of course... but, Jerry would never finger an F-chord like that!...
He uses his thumb to grab the 6th string, with his index covering just the first 2 (E & B) strings... a completely different wrist position.
Check any Terrapin vid.
Stop this vid on the words "Lions Den" at 2:04-2:05 for a clear shot:

Beatles always played barre chords the Jer way too, I learned and always used the full 1st finger barre, gotta work on that option.

In the poor guy's defense, he may not have been there to do his best Jerry impersonation (although if it were me with limited Tiger time I sure would have been stuck on middle pickup split!)

Gloves were just for the picture of course. I'm sure there was at least a little China Cat(gloves off) while no one was looking. Please tell me it's so!
p.s. His cable almost looks like a speaker cable. My stomach is starting to turn a little.

Ok- I just got Vinced! I met Vince on multiple occasions and he was a hell of a fun guy. I tried to leave a show(The Noodles) in Phoenix during the break. He jumped in front of my truck and yelled that I must stay. A very fun time! I'm happy with Vince, just don't Koons me without an explanation guys!

That is a good question, maybe because this guy doesn't care about treating this piece of art with care

I believe the gloves were required by the R & R Hall of Fame Museum. They treat everything there with the same care the Smithsonian does.

But why was this baboon allowed to play it with no protection

Ha! Jer would chuckle himself to death if he ever saw that!

I make it a practice never to play any guitar with rubber gloves on. I'm bad enough as it is....

you can see Jim Irsays reflection in the mirror

and I might be completely insane, but the other reflection looks like Pete Townshend



edit: btw the responses in this thread are stupid, it stinks of jealousy around here. seriously nitpicking this dude? If someone offered me a chance to play Tiger Im picking that shit up with my bare hands and jamming the shit out of that thing
