b0b, I'm glad you mentioned getting rid of the low G# string to decrease the "muddiness" of the strummed chords played on the low strings. I removed my low G# string probably based on your i ...

Playing genuine blues on a steel is an adaption of course because the instrument never comes out sounding bluesy naturally.
I disagree. Listen to Dan Tyack. It's all in your phrasing and your choice ...

Thanks, Calum. I work with the 9th string D as the root quite often, so putting a low D on the C pedal made a lot of sense to me. Even though I do use the F lever a lot, I found myself using the D not ...

C pedal lowering 12 E to D makes a great D power chord - B+C pedals on strings 12, 11, 9. Smoke On The Water!

I played Extended E9th for over 30 years. I tried a bunch of things over the first decade, but what I settled on was very simple and served my purposes well:
