Larry Cragg: keeping "Old Black" in tune and more

Guitar Tech Larry Cragg talks to about the sound of Old Black and more in a great article about Neil Young:

It does if I tune it. When he tries it’s impossible. You can see him wildly wiggling the vibrato and then play the last chord in the song and it’s still in tune, and you can get through a lot of songs before it has to be tuned. What you have to do is not check to see if you’re in tune until after you wiggle the vibrato and see what note that is. If I can get him to wiggle the arm instead of trying to re-tune it with the tuning keys, it will go right back.
