I’ve been a forum member for about 5 years and I’m finally going to make my first post. I have a group called Western Bling in which I play guitar and steel. Earlier this year we put out an album of Western Swing standards and a short live video. I switch over to the steel around the 1:40 mark when we kick into Roly Poly on the video below. C6 certainly isn’t my strength but I’m making good progress on that neck.
