Hi. I probably shouldn't be in this company as a beginner, but all my life I have wanted to play a musical instrument.

Having recently undergone two major arterial operations, triple bypass and carotid arteries and awaiting another on the carotid on the other side I have decided that I WILL learn to play the lap steel, no pedals, NOW, before it's too late.

I don't want to regret not having done this at the end.

I have bought a lapsteel, and amp etc and Joedocmusic DVDs. What I would like are some fairly easy tabs in C6th C E G A C E and some lessons. I am having trouble finding any such tabs. I am a keen country and western fan if that helps.

My apologies for intruding.

Just had my second triple bypass myself. Lessonswithtroy.com helped me out a lot . gregcutshaw.com has a lot of tabs and backing tracks.

Hi Neville -

Welcome - you've come to the right place!

The steel is going to be bit of a challenge with different string grips and bar slants, etc. but if you stick with it, I'm sure your effort will be rewarded.

When you are comfortable with the basics of the instrument, you can't go wrong with the many beautiful arrangements posted by FoBro Bert Farroach. See below for an example of his work. Then do a Search on his name in the Tablature section.

Also highly recommend Doug Beaumier (do Forum and YouTube searches) who not only plays exquisitely but is also a first-rate teacher.

Alright - keep calm and carry on!
