PostForum Section: Steel Players   Posted: 12 Jun 2019 12:16 am   Subject: Perceived Tuning Issue With Guitar Player
As a guitar player, I was a very out of pocket player. My long time bass player would always tell drummers not to listen to me, or I'd throw him off. I used a lot of vibrato bar too on surf tunes. And ...

I agree John, my own tendency is to lean more toward pick blocking, and tucking my 3rd finger under to block. But, At $20.00, Right Hand Alpha is a pretty comprehensive look at palm blocking. I am cer ...

A copy of Jeff Newman's "Right Hand Alpha" might help you get a start. It's an old course, and there are a lot of different opinions on right hand technique these days, but it's a good place ...

Sean, You might also want to consider a silver face Twin Reverb. They can be found for between $700.00 and $1000.00 - very reasonable for a vintage amp. A little work at the amp shop, maybe a good pai ...

I don't think it gets more "textbook" than just about any Ernest Tubb with Buddy and Leon.

The steel part starting at 2:38, with the descending scale toward the end of the 4 chord, is what had me thinking it was Buddy - he was always doing that descending scale thing. Paul's assessment of s ...
