Happa Birthday to You, Reggie, and Many Happy Returns!

 

Reggie Young is one of the most recorded guitarists of the past six decades: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reggie_Young

 

Here are two of my favourite songs with Reggie on guitar. I especially love the distinct intro of I Can Help. For the recording of In The Ghetto, Scotty Moore lended his Gibson J-200 to Reggie.

Indeed.

His very short acoustic guitar solo on J. J. Cale's "Super Blue" is a magic moment (starts at 2.12). The track also features Lloyd Green on steel.

Indeed! One of my favorite guys. First became aware of him via his work on John Prine's debut album and the first few (pre-Margaritaville) Jimmy Buffett records. Not many people better at coming with cool electric parts to benefit the song. Super tasty.
