Anyone know who the guitar player is?

Postby BillB » Mon Jun 13, 2011 2:11 pm

I saw this Don Gibson video and wondered who the lead guitar player is. I also saw him on some other Grand Ole Opry videos, and it seems like I probably should know who he is. Someone help me out here.

He resembles a sergeant I knew in the air force named vernon seay who was a really good chet type player a lot better than me anyway. Of course it probably isn't him.

He gets up around 1:28 and plays the lead break. Good pickin' with some jazzy licks.

That's longtime Opry guitarist and session great Spider Wilson.

To me, it looks as if it could be "Jimmy" Wilson, who worked with Dickens quite a bit. But it could be "Spider;" I never knew him so don't know what he looks like. Could they be brothers?????

Jimmy is Spider's given name. They are one in the same.

Thanks, guys!
I was thinking that it was someone we had discussed in the past here on the Chetboard (or the old one). He's a great player. Anyone know if he's still around?
