Brian - I can't actually help you, but I admire this post.
Fortunately for me, I've been working as a guitarist in a circle of musicians for years and they have pulled my steel playing in along the way, patiently putting up with my learning process (still). Not many steel players in my area, and these folks love the sound of it, so they are very encouraging to me.
I hope you find some folks to jam with, get some hours in the seat. Any open jams in the area that would be friendly to ya? Coffee shops with new-ish singer-songwriters looking to fill out their sound a bit?
