Recorded in 1999. I was experimenting with an F Diatonic tuning on pedal steel. My good friend Fred Campbell played the bass on this simply Bach tune, "Minuet in G Major".

Very well done sir. The tone is very rich. Were you using a tube amp or recording direct?

I believe it was direct into the Roland V-Studio recorder, Joe.

Here's a link to a page about the F Diatonic copedent:

Very nice, bOb. I think I heard it first in the Pop charts from Alma Cogan sung in German as So fรคngt es immer an, and in English as a Lover's Concerto done by the Toys.

Very tasteful, and an interesting tuning.

The question I always ask is "Would Bach have liked it?" and I think he would.
