When I'm bored I make strange things to play, here is a Baritone I made for this Video only.

I like to have fun. When you read about strings & tuning all you will get is advice on a Guitar played by finger, not Steel Bar therefore they talk about tuning a fifth or fourth lower than standard tuning of EADGBE which is no help to a Lap Steel guy, you have to experiment yourself. You will find Strings here,,,

String Gauge Chart here:

You can pick any tuning you want. I have a guitar set up with same intervals same as a regular 6 string E major tuning, but dropped down to C. Big & growly.

I've also had fun with intervals same as low bass open G (DGDGBD) but dropped down to open E (BEBEG#B).
