Hey Steelers,

Fairly new at the PS, off and on for 20 years. Basically a banjo dude but like to make up tunes. Still working on harmonics on this thing.

Lots of screw ups beside that. Fessy 4 by 5.

Comments or concerns would be cool

You sound fine Chris. I wish I sounded that good on my first try. Just keep the practice hours going.

Chris I thoroughly enjoyed that arraignment and your execution.
It is very soulful and has a reverent quality to it.
Thanks

Chris, I think you have some good arrangement ideas there and your intonation with the bar is real good for a new guy. I'm no expert, been at it about 8 years. Keep at it and good luck.

Chris, I enjoy sitting down and watching other steel players play. Being fairly new you are doing good. One thing I noticed that may help you is it appears you are sitting too low. Maybe it was the camera angle. Most steel players today use a Pack A Seat when playing if at all possible. Keep up the good work and I will be looking for more of your videos.

Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback. I think I need a taller chair after reviewing vids on YouTube. I actually posted another one on there but it's worse. Not original either. Anyhow thanks a bunch. Chris
