I'd say Yes, you have. Check out his discography below. Yes, he's still kickin' and pickin', what they called "chicken pickin", using a flat pick with a finger pick on his middle finger.
His guitar of choice was always the Telecaster.

Ricky Nelson, Don and Phil Everly, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Emmy Lou Harris, Gram Parsons, Glen Campbell, Hoyt Axton, Johnny Cash and of course, Elvis, then lots of pop stars too, the Monkees, John Denver, Joni Mitchell, Elvis Costello, an amazing list of albums. Check it out.

First musically incredible show I ever went to at 15 yrs. old , (brought to by my Aunt who was into disco) was Emmylou and the hot band on the heels of Blue Kentucky girl, I believe the hot band at the time (from memory) included James, Ricky Skaggs (unknown then), Rodney Crowell and Hank Devito.

According to a post on Facebook, he was the guitarist on "Susie Q" by Dale Hawkins; James was fifteen at the time.
