"My RKR lever lowers 4/8 a 1/2 step and I have that working."

It's probably what Ian described. You need to loosen or remove the string, then remove the return spring, then move the raise, top, part of the finger forward as if the string is being raised. When ...

Just a thought; you should be using a .014 for the 4th string. Using a heavier string might cause your problem.

If you have an E9th 10 string guitar and you lower strings 4 and 8, put the bar on fret one, strings 10 skip 9, then 8 thru 4 will be the same notes as a 6 string C6th lap steel. C, E, G, A, C, E.

Eric, you want to lower both 2 and 9; if they won't lower far enough, they need more space, get it by loosening the tuning nuts. Back them off a few turns, retune the open string notes, then try to t ...
