Ivan, in your original post you made reference to something that I noticed and figured out in a lot of DD's playing is that on his trem side runs that he hits through the E string which gives that unmatched ringing. I was listening to DD while cleaning the garage a month ago and that's when it first dawned on my and why he sounds so incredible unique and it can't be duplicated easily. I tried! Us standard players have to upstroke from the bottom with a lot of power whereas for him it all came naturally to down stroke and power through the run. This runs throughout his catalog when he's doing runs and I wonder if it was just sloppy playing and he realized how incredible it sounded and just went with it.
