PostForum Section: Steel Without Pedals   Posted: 18 Aug 2017 1:36 pm   Subject: Has Hawaii dis-owned the Steel Guitar?
I get the sense that Steel Guitar in Hawaii is as described by Jeff Au Hoy. Certainly it disappeared from popular music by the 1960s, but it seems to have some very strong interest among Hawaiians tod ...

In an era of degraded arts and traditions, that statue could have been dreadful, but the project turned out very well. This picture of Kekuku, or one from the same shoot, may have been used as a refer ...

Rob was on all the variety TV shows when I was a kid. He just about held his own against the rise of Shadows style guitar instrumentals, but once the Beatles and Stones broke, Rob disappeared. I think ...

I think a lot of us are tone junkies. Of course the amp has a lot to do with it. I was using a 1970s Fender Champ which sounded great for Hawai'ian music on my Oahu Tonemaster, Ric B6 and my 8 string ...

It begs the question of what those players were aiming for. Distortion was not an ideal in the pre-Satisfaction (I can't get no) days. I remember my brother's early Rock and Roll band trying anything ...

That's the real deal. The CD from which it comes, is one of my top picks. It seems opinions vary on who the steel guitarist(s) were:

The only thing wrong with Jerry's book is that there is not enough of it.

I don't have favourites. I like all those mentioned so far and I would add to the list Jeff Au Hoy, Isaac Akuna and Chuck Lettes.

PS Did anyone mention Hal Aloma?

What a great resource to explore for non-standard repertoire. I wonder who the collector is. I am guessing someone not entirely unknown to the Hawaiian music crowd.

PostForum Section: Steel Without Pedals   Posted: 15 Jun 2017 12:35 pm   Subject: Straight bar Dominant 7 chord positions on the C6
A flat seventh tone in a sixth tuning is awkward to say the least. On my 8 string A6th guitar I tune the bottom string to G. Its out of the way, but its there when you need it. Its all a compromise.

Ironically, as much as I love Hawaiian steel guitar, I do not like the marches. I find them tedious listening. However, I do recognise the expertise.

I am sure Basil's bars are an improvement, but what we are seeing here is the technological breakthrough which rendered the rusty railroad spike obsolete.
