Facebook and YouTube didn't exist when I started playing. The internet was there, but if you wanted to watch how players taught techniques, licks, scales, blocking, right hand position using picks, bar techniques how to play chords, and pedal positions, you had to watch it on video or DVD, or take a steel lesson, or go to a steel show or seminar..Although I loved the steel at a young age, like I do now, because of cerebral palsy, I went through a process where I had to figure out what instrument would be right for me, and at seventeen, I got interested in playing steel, and started playing at the age of eighteen and now at thirty-five, almost thirty-six, I still love it!

Awesome, Brett. An inspiration to us all.

Funny you mention having to learn from DVD's and videos before YouTube. Why, when I was learning, there wasn't even...we'll never mind. I have forgotten what we didn't have. Razz

Well, it SEEMS like it was only a few years ago. But I guess the numbers tell a different story. I love Bob Carlucci's signature - "I'm over the hill and hitting rocks on the way down!"

Young to PSG or young in age? I don't feel so young, I'm 38. ( don't know what you consider young) But as far as playing, I've only been at this thing 3 months.

Last night a band played on Jimmy Kimmel called the Revivalists. They had a steel player. Itwasn't a country revival or something like that, just a regular rock band. When they went to commercial right before the band played, the camera shot was a beautiful blue pedal steel from the tuners looking down the fretboard. I was intrigued to say the least. I know nothing about the band or the steeler but I liked them and was happy to see a young band with a steel on tv.

That song was all over top 40 radio earlier this year. For the music video, one of the opening shots is a slo-mo of the pedal steel strings being raked: https://youtu.be/o0Pt7M0weUI

Mid twenties here. Just finally found a Carter Starter in range and made the drive for it today. All set up and ready tonight and I don't have anywhere to be til 7am Monday...

I'm kind of attracted to the sacred steel tuning though, not sure how that's viewed on here. I may be incorporating the instrument into my bands songs I've written and I've read it's good for comping chords.

25 here, started when I was 14 and have been at it ever since. Current road and studio steel player for Cody Jinks! I've met a lot of young Steelers on the road that are kind of hiding behind the curtain but trust me, when they pop up, you'll be amazed!
