I received this today (takes awhile to get to Canada) and I cannot tell you how delighted I am.
Very professionally done.
Even though I play C6 pedal, I have been wanting to study the non-pedal for two reasons. One, to learn the neck better, and for the portability of a lap steel.
Doug...I thank you...wonderful stuff.

William, thank you for your kind words! I'm glad you like the book, and I think you'll find it helpful in learning more about the C6 PSG tuning. The licks and chords will transfer over nicely. Happy Holidays! Cool

Doug - the book and CDs are outstanding. I now have many of the songs memorized and my playing is improving daily. I took 2 years of lessons on the six sting Lap Steel in the early 50s (Clyde Meadows was my teacher in Fort Worth), but laid the steel down for the standard when the Rock & Roll era started in the 50s. I bought a Morrell Pro 8 String and recently picked it up at the young age of 70. Your course has helped me greatly. I do plan on purchasing a PSG in the near future. I hope to get to jam with my long time friend Owen Barnes who is also a Forum member. Thanks!

Doug,
First off many thanks for how quickly you sent my "course". Arrived within two days of placing my order. Second really impressed with it, and sure hope that eventually I will be able to play a tenth as well as you do. In a way I sort of feel that I ordered a "paint by numbers kit" and then find out that it was put together by Rembrandt. Any way thanks again.

Tom

Any chance that you are going to publish another book with that incredible version of "Ghost Riders In The Sky" that's on youtube? Man, I love your solo in that one. I'd buy the book just for that one tab.

Thanks James! Yes, the next book is about 80% completed, and "Ghost Riders" is in the book. I included the solo, very similar to the solo on the video, but a slightly easier version. 25 songs in all. The tab is all written and 19 of the tunes are recorded, so I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel! Been working on it for a year. It should be completed in a couple of months. Thanks again!

I'm on the verge of ordering your first C6 book. It would be great if you had videos of all of the songs on youtube. I see you have some of them and they will add considerable information as far as the finer point of how you play a particular piece. Every consider adding the others?

Doug, I have already listened to those. I meant actual videos to be used along with your book. For example, when I buy your tab to "Ghost Riders", watching you actually play it will be a considerable aid.

I was just suggesting making youtube videos for all of the tabbed songs as part of the package.

Thanks James, that sounds like a good idea. I'll probably be doing some videos for the upcoming book and maybe I'll go back and do some for the other book when I have time.

Doug:

I agree with James that YouTube videos of the songs in your books would be nice but I think that you should be compensated for your time, effort and knowledge. (Having one or two "freebies" on YouTube is a good marketing tool, showing people a sample of what you are selling.)

Just my thoughts...

Steve Ahola

P.S. Your first book (w CD's) is great- I can't wait to see the second!

Thanks, Steve. The new C6 lap steel book will be completed in a few weeks. The tab is all written for the 25 songs and 21 are recorded.
