PostForum Section: Pedal Steel   Posted: 23 Jul 2017 9:43 am   Subject: Lloyd Green C Pedal
When you lower the second string D# to D (a half step), the B+C pedals give you a major chord on strings 2 3 4. Rocking on/off the C pedal makes the classic country sound, like rocking on/off the A p ...

Buddy Emmons didn't have that lever (as far as ...
