Steve Howe playing pedal steel?
(go to 3:06 and 3:32)

I saw him playing a Fender Stringmaster once, but had never seen him on a Sho~Bud pedal steel.

Mashin' the ol' A&B pedals.... and he's standing up! Looked like it was up on a little riser. Must be a workout for the left ankle like that! Thanks Donny... I'd never seen him on a pedal guitar either.

For me my interst in them was gone after the Yes album. But this is pretty good.

I've been into Yes since '74 and saw them on their '76, '77, '78, '80 and '91 tours.

Steve began using the Fender Stringmaster on the '72 album "Close to the Edge" (specifically on the song "And You And I") and regularly brought that on tour ever since. On the '74 album, "Relayer" he played the ShoBud on the song "To Be Over" and brought that with him on the '74 through '75 tour (which he played standing up, but only for the short solo on "To Be Over"). They dropped the song from their live set after that and he left the ShoBud at home.

He has used it on a few of his solo albums and a little on the intro to the '77 Yes song, "Awaken". While the band has played Awaken on several tours, he played the intro on a Rickenbacker 360 (at least he did on the '77 tour) and has never brought the ShoBud out with him again that I know of Winking
