Kristof Hahn on lap steel with SWANS.

SWANS are working on a new recording, and just released the limited version of a live compilation, NOT HERE/NOT NOW. Not everyone's cuppa, but.....

And how 'bout this with BJ Cole:

Just got done listening to the NPR Tiny Desk concert of this guy

Debashish Bhattacharya

Very interesting and in my opinion awesome stuff. He created his own lap steels, with sympathetic drone strings.

Debashish (and Duane Smile ) are pretty much hardwired into my DNA at this point. He was releasing strictly long classical ragas in the early part of his career, and then began gradually moving towards a more populist output (concurrent with his playing in Remember Shakti with John McLaughlin). I personally think he's going a bit too far in the "short-dumb & happy-for-Americans" dept., I thought 2005's "Calcutta Slide Guitar 3" was about the best middle (but I do like the hard stuff). Ravi Shankar had often expressed regret that he took the "Ambassador of Indian Music" role way too far in the 1960's/70's, playing dumb music in the hopes of interesting people in it, as playing what you think people need to hear can have some dangerous consequences (for the artist, not for them).

Speaking of different styles, we've finally gotten our albums listed on iTunes, and if you like outside-the-box pedal steel stylings you are bound to find at least one tune that you like in there, as every one features a completely different musical genre, and only one or two of sound even remotely like "your father's pedal steel" music...

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ron-rogers-wailing-wind/id727192218

But wait, there's more: You don't have to pay to listen, as we've got a nice page maintained by our friends at Civil Defense Music: http://civildefensemusic.com/artists/ron-rogers-and-the-wailing-wind-2/

Look for the Sound Cloud player at the bottom of the page and listen away...

Not to revive an awesome old thread or anything..

But I had completely forgotten one of my favorite chamber pop band ala the beach boys had a pedal steel player in it.

Been a while since posts were added.
I don't recall seeing these guys, but better repeating than ignoring.

Pretty nifty stuff, Mr. Grafe! Songs that are actually about something, besides yer truck 'n' yer gurl 'n' yer prowess at swilling beer? Hasn't got a chance. Laughing

Hey there,

So I already posted a link over in "Steel Without Pedals" where I was informed that this was really the ideal place for this, so...

Here's a recording/video of part of an improv session session that I took part in earlier this year with a diverse and cool group of musicians when I was back home in Brooklyn for a spell. It was the first session in an ongoing improv project called Sonic Crowd started by my friend Matt Geldof at his studio.

I hope y'all enjoy!
Laurence

Mike,
I am tuning 12 strings on this clip ...from high to low...

A--G--D#--D--A#--A--G--D#--D--A#--A--G

It is a Japanese Koto Tuning. They have a separate nut for each string and can push downward behind them and get a quick raise in pitch. Performed with the finger(s) of the left hand.

I use the steel bar to vary pitches on certain of my strings. I left a space between 4 and 5 strings so I would have some room to get the bar in there and it makes a good reference also.

I don't play this very much, only when I want to do something different.

Thanks for your comment/question and all the best.

Roy

"This edition of the Muses my program is entirely devoted to the Nijmegen master bassist / bandleader / composer / teacher PIETER DUMA . This in connection with the presentation of his latest band ANY VEGETABLE . Of this ensemble are two pieces recorded live by hearing & seeing : at the beginning and end of the program. In between , we look at the legendary concert (there is still talked about !) On June 10, 2003 in Lux Nijmegen of for that evening once assembled supergroup with star musicians MIKE Keneally & JAN AKKERMAN Pieter made ​​-as his buddy drummer RENÉ CREEMERS we also Any Vegetable terugzien- : very prominent part of this impressive ad hoc quartet Nijmegen music changed permanently !" Enjoy!

Cool Cool 'welcome....

Nice to see Mr. Akkerman up and running, he made a huge splash on this side of the pond one time - Focus, "HOCUS POCUS" - then left again.

"Different Stiles"

This is the stile I use.



It's a bit of a job to get over it with all my gear but I usually leave it to the roadie.

She doesn't mind......
