Luke Doucet has a very unique style of playing that I believe is influenced by people
Brian Setzer and other Rockibilly players....I have seen him live and caught him finger
single notes while keeping the chords ringing making you think that there are two 
in the band...VERY fast and talented player...good luck trying to keep up with the real solos....

Tuning: Standard (E,A,D,G,B,E)

Intro: N/A
