Cry Cry Cry

	  		
 
   This song features the Scruggs tuner, or Keith tuner, on the low E-string. Marty 
has a set of them on Clarence, the Fender Telecaster which was given to him by the  
widow of the late Clarence White. This is the same Tele that featured the first  
B-bender ever, invented by Mr White. 
   In case you don't know, Scruggs tuners are tuning pegs with which you can very  
easily detune a string to a pre-determined pitch. They were invented by Earl Scruggs, 
(DUH!!) so he could easily switch from a G-tuning to a D-tuning and back on a banjo. 
Guitarist liked this idea too and started modifying them so low E strings fit through 
them and put them on guitars. And before long guitarist were actually de- and re- 
tuning their guitars in the middle of songs, as is the case in this song, as opposed 
to retuning between songs, what the original idea was.  
   Fender calls it the "Custom Artist Series", you know, the signature guitars of 
people who are really dead (Danny Gatton, Waylon Jennings, SRV and Albert Collins), 
and therefore do not have to be paid. Anyways, here you can find guitars that feature  
the Scruggs tuners (the Clarence White Telecaster, the Waylon Jennings Telecaster, and 
I believe the Marty Stuart Telecaster has 'm too). 
   You can also buy Scruggs tuners online, new, but they're like $100,= a piece, which  
is obviously ludicrous, but a better option than spending $3500,= dollars on a new 
guitar. Another option is the Hipshot D-tuner, which you can get from Stew Mac. This 
thing works with a lever and is perfect for a quick dropped D between songs, but is a 
little less practical during a song, mainly because the way it is designed causes the 
pitch of the string to be raised a little before it is lowered. Costs about $50.=. 
   (By the way, for some great guitarplaying that includes extensive use of the  
Scruggs tuner, check out a dude named Adrian Legg.)
