I would be pumped up with that set list in front of me, too. Though I might have to check my calendar to see what year it is... Have fun with it, Pete Cool

It can’t be done, at least with standard 3P/4L. You get the 1M7, 2m7, 3m7, and V7 at the no pedals home fret. The 4M7 is 5 frets up. With AB down, you don’t even have a M7 to start from.

Don’t forget about A6 mode on E9 with A+B pedals down. Herb Remington has 2 books of tabs for playing pedal steel in A6 tuning mode. I just stumbled onto his site today.

Try changing the axis of your speaker in relation to your head.

If you are in line with the center of the cone, the “ice pick” or “death beam” high frequencies will dominate what’s going ...

not to offend, but it's not a pile of crap.

I can't believe people are arguing about this. Playing your own style or solo's has nothing to do with playing the song in the right key and playing the ...

Seems I have struck a chord. Minor or major probably makes no difference, since I am certain my status here has diminished a measure or two. I’ll triad not to cause any more treble.

I am challenging the comment “I play what I feel” made by others. I ...

Violin phrasing involves legato technique. If anyone knows how to do that on steel, I’d be interested. I’ve heard it done by all the great steel players, but it still doesn’t sound like violin l ...

Seems to me that if you drop your E's on the E9, you get a B6 tuning, correct?

So before I go out and buy another lap steel or even a D10 psg........any real disadvantages to sticking to the E9 for ...

Very classic C6 tone and excellent playing, even if he did miss the intro. Yep, I know it’s an E9.

Spend another 60 bucks on an adjustable-height keyboard player’s bench, find your most ergonomic height, then alter your Steelers Choice accordingly.
