Hi everyone,

There's a recording of "Reflections from the Moon" by Speedy West off his "Guitar Spectacular" album that blows me away every time I take a listen. Can someone tell me what tuning he uses for this as well as if this is a pedal or non-pedal steel? Thanks so much.

-Michael

I think he was playing a fender 1000 pedal steel on that album, and the tuning he used for a lot of that record was F#9. I know I've seen some threads about it on here, if you search.

Here is a link to the song. Fantastic! You can hear Speedy bending some notes with the pedals which is pretty rare for him.
