Hi lapsteelers !
A new contribution for C6 players.
Another fine melody, this time written by Henry Mancini for the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's.
With a few nice chord changes, some slants and mostly 2 harmonic voices.
A good one to study on, I think, but not too difficult Confused .

I did a clip here:

Below is the first part.
For a complete PDF of the tab plus the mp3 backing track, just mail me, and I'll send it to you !
Hope you like this one too, best regards,
Bert

Hello Bert,

Great job on this song. New member here and it is the first time I requested a download from someone. I am guessing you need my personal email account to send the pdf and mp3! As soon as I know I will send you a request for this song. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Bert,
I could use a copy of this song too. Your performance on youtube was excellent!! I noticed you don't use finger picks. Any particular reason?

Also, I have a request. Do you have any tabs in C6th or B11 of church hymns? I would love to have some and would be willing to pay for them. Thanks!

Carol

Hi Carolyn, thanks and I'll send you a PDF plus mp3 backing.
I went from guitar fingerpicking into lapsteel. So I'm used to playing without picks; it has a nice expression and damping is easier. And for instance I like Mark Knopfler's way of playing. Often without plectrum on the electric guitar.
But . . . now and then I put them on (Propiks now, easier to make them fit), for I must learn to handle it.

I'm on the forum for three months now, and contributed 7 or 8 songs, and working on the next one now, and that's it.
No church tabs. There's people who are specialized in the Lord. I saw Erv Niehaus and probably others too.
Best regards, Bert

Thank you Bert for sharing your work with so many! I have a lot of practicing to do. I only have a piano background in music, so hopefully I will someday learn to write tablature as well. Smile

That is exactly how my journey went.
I was an acoustic fingerpicker for decades and then arthritis got in the way.
I picked up lap steel and not having fingerpicks is natural for me.
I also have nice long and strong fingernails on my picking hand.
The only concession I made was I am now using a thumbpick.
The angle of thumb on a lap steel is just not conducive to not using a pick. At least in my naive opinion
but I do see some very good players not using one and it sounds fine to me.
I hate the darn thing but it is beginning to work for me a bit better.
I am having trouble getting rid of that irritating pick noise on the strings, that short little zzzzt as you pick the string.
Drives me nuts. Or more nuts might be more accurate.

Hi Bert,
I just joined steel guitar forum after finding and watching your YouTube rendition of “Moon Rive” you play it wonderfully. Is it still available the tab sheet and mp3?
I’m a beginner and I’d love to be able to play this at some point.
Keep the YouTube videos going too
John
