It's getting to where I hear this stuff but picture Doug playing it in a video. If you are taking requests, I would love to hear you do "Atlantis".

Hi Scott, I did Atlantis last year ——-> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvTWpCgs524

I’m not too happy with this one though. The tone of the Emmons lap steel is not what I hoped it would be. I should have played the song on one of my older guitars.

Hey...either I missed it or my memory isn't so great! Embarassed

Anyway, it's a natural for the Doug Beaumier treatment, and you do a great job!

I was surfing the web today and found this great rendition of "Apache" on YouTube, figured there was a thread about it here at the SGF.

Hey Doug, just wanted to say "great job"! And over 1.8 million views...Right on!

Thanks Jesse! This has been my most popular video by far. It reached 1 Million views in just six weeks. That's mostly because YouTube has been featuring it as a "recommended" video to viewers. I appreciate all of the views and the kind comments.

I can tell by the YouTube comments that the vast majority of viewers are not steel guitarists. They're mostly folks searching for oldies, surf music, instrumental music, 1960s music, etc. Many of them don't even know what instrument I'm playing... but they like it. That's good though, because it brings the steel guitar to new audiences worldwide. Always a good thing. Cool

Today this video reached 2 Million views... in less than 4 months. Shocked I'm amazed by that. Looks like Surf guitar is still alive and well!

Congratulations Doug, your steel work grooves on that tune. Now that you have gone viral on YouTube, I guess YouTube will ask you to partner up with them and make money off of the advertising profits...Right on!
