Nils Lofgren Shreds on “The Ghost of Tom Joad”

N.O.S. is going to be Bruce-heavy for the next couple weeks. I’m checking out the Boss on the 15th at Fenway, and am pumped to say the least. The performance in the video is one that makes you want to strap on an electric guitar and join a rock & roll band. It’s also worth checking out Tom Morello’s solo on this tune (from the same tour I think). A similarly great performance, but I have to say I prefer Nils. Minimal effects other than some intense overdrive/distortion; the tone is mostly his fingers, a Strat, and a cranked amp (or two).

In case you’re wondering about the funky attachment on the headstock, check out the video below from Fender.
