I watched a bushel gourd grow near the driveway for months......I kept thinking... “That one looks like I can use it for something special .....if it dries out with a good hard thick shell. .. .” Well it did....and so I turned it into the EG...Electric Gourd!
The tuners are off of an old Les Paul guitar and the frets are made of “finishing nails”.
It’s favorite day was recording “Foggy Mtn .Breakdown” at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals AL.......!
As far as I know FAME had not been exposed to an electric gourd until that day...
.....and probably not since.....
I am so grateful to Mr. Rick Hall for that wonderful opportunity
