This is my new guitar,it’s not a regular steel guitar but it is a regular guitar with with pedals the tuning is ebgdae. It is a great guitar for people with hand problems such as arthritis.it is also great for people that have trouble learning the standard guitar,because it is super easy to play using chords.it is great for strumming, picking patterns and als,o slide guitar.

Yes u can it took me a year to learn a small amount of chords on a regular guitar now I can get many chords I could never get on this one just by laying a slide bare on a line. Thanks Jimmie

Why not simplify it and start off with an open E major chord and use one pedal to lower the G# to G for the minor and another pedal to lower one of the Es to D for the 7th?

Did you watch the video? It is easy to understand how to play the guitar the way it is setup.
And it works all the way up and down the neck.
