Lindsey Buckingham – The Artist
Lindsey Adams Buckingham (born 1949) is an American singer, songwriter, and producer, best known as lead guitarist and one of the vocalists of the music group Fleetwood Mac from 1975 to 1987 and 1997 to 2018. In addition to his tenure with Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham has released six solo albums and three live albums. Buckingham is known for his fingerpicking guitar style and is considered by many to be one of the best guitarists of all times.
Trouble – The Song
‘Trouble’ is a song written, composed and performed by Lindsey Buckingham and released as the lead single from his 1981 debut solo album Law and Order. The single was Buckingham’s first hit as a solo artist. Buckingham approached “Trouble” differently from his other songs, wanting the song to have more of a “live feel”. He recruited his Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Mick Fleetwood, to play drums. However, Buckingham believed none of the takes were solid from start to finish, so a taped loop of the drum track (about four-seconds long) was used throughout the song: “The irony of that was that the original reason for having Mick play on the song was to approach the track completely live, as opposed to my usual technique.”
The Rick Turner Model 1-C-LB Guitar – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of Guitarist Lindsey Buckinghams signature guitar the Rick Turner Model 1-C-LB guitar. Rick Turner (born 1943) is an American builder of guitars and basses. Turner co-founded Alembic Inc in 1969 and was involved in the design and construction of the Alembic instruments. He founded Rick Turner Guitars in 1979 and joined Gibson in 1988 where he served as president of Gibson Labs West Coast R&D Division. The Turner Model 1 electric was designed by Turner in 1979 for use by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, who continues to use the Model 1 to this day. The guitar pioneered the use of curved plates on the front and back in order to reduce standing wave hysteresis loss and the use of 18 volt preamps in an attempt to tame the ‘quack’ sound commonly associated with piezoelectric acoustic guitar pickups.
