You really should consider a pedal steel. I mean, I understand the dedication to non-pedal, but for playing chords and making the kind of moves you’re interested in, in order to do it really well a ...

I don't know all the versions you mention, but it is a simple chord progression that is wide open to substitution.

I6 - IV7 - V7 - I6

Sad to read this news. I became a big fan of ACDC circa 1977. Their music felt closely linked to the great Rock and Roll traditions of Chuck Berry, etc., mostly because of Malcolm Young.

Are you saying that all the world’s a Texas honky tonk? Because I don’t think they even allow lap steel players in.

Virtually every experienced recording hand - whether engineer or player - records every instrument dry. Some have reverb mixed to taste into headphone/earbud monitors, but never on a track itself - ...

The reason I ask these things is because this will ...

Mark, I'm loving the new stand!

I prefer using 3 legs, and compared to my older stand the new one has a wider angle, so it's more secure.

The pickups are very thin, almost like an old Dearmond pickup. But with the right adjustment of the height you can get nice tone out of it.

I’m personally a big fan of Lambchop, but I am more enamored with Kurt Wagner than anything else, though I think the band does a great job of supporting its creative center (Kurt).
