Pedals A & B.

Raising the Fs.

Lowering the Bs.

Pedal C.

Lowering 2 and 9.

Lowering the Es.

Finally - raising 1,2 and 7 (my LKV ...

I didn't know you played that style. I have only ever seen reference to you in connection with pedal steel guitar. I apologise if I've ruffled some feathers here.

I couldn't say, Ricky, but this is emphatically Hawaiian style and tone with no hint of pedals.

I'm not familiar with the genre's subtleties but, if this had been years ago, my money would have bee ...

Maybe library music of some sort, Tim? I wonder if it's done there on the Island.

Someone must have a clue.

The PGA Tour is currently in Hawaii and I'm watching intermittently.

There's a lot of incidental music behind the fade-ins and fade-outs. It's all standard stuff and distinctly Hawaiian, and steel ...

I love Terry's musicianship. I saw him with Ricky Skaggs in Derby (in the UK) in the '80s. Check out his version of 'Raising the Dickens' on Skaggs' 'Love's Gonna Get Ya'' album. Incredible chops!

Yes, they've added echo and it improves it somewhat. But if the fiddler gets a bit 'pitchy' it can feel like a long four bars!!!

With respect, Brad, why should the Union help? Is everyone on the stage paying dues? If they are members then they're working for less than scale, anyway.
