Here's a request for Alden Oldfield. "Just a Drink Away" is a cover by Charley Crockett of an old Ernest Tubb tune. It's on Charley's "Lil G.L.'s Honky Tonk Jubilee" Album. Nathan Fleming plays some great steel on this album. Here's a whack at Nathan's intro and break at 1:17.

Questions, comments, and corrections always welcome.

Here it is on youtube:

Hey Liam, D would be the knee lever that lowers strings 4 and 8 one half tone. To add to the confusion there really is no community standard on assigning letters to levers (pedals A, B, C are pretty standard) and some guys refer to that change as an "E" lever.

At the bottom of page 2 on the tab, the G lever lowers string 6 a full tone. You may or may not have that lever on your particular setup.

Now that is a classic pedal steel part, very much worth learning.

That's my Boy!!!! You know Nathan was my first student when I started teaching in 1998 in Round Rock, Tx. He was a joy and a natural to teach. Every pickin pattern I would show him that took me a freakin year to learn...he would learn it IMMEDIATELY!!! and he was the only one to ever learn and master all 35 licks and solos I came up with, most of them, on my Video/Tab I put out back in 2000. He always practices and he is ALWAYS great. Of course these days; he has far surpassed his Teacher..ah...ha....but he kept me enthused as a teacher; which is very important to have.
Proud of you Nathan.
Ricky

Very cool Ricky. Hope the tab is close...he's got a few really slick moves. There's great steel on that entire album.

Dirk, love him or hate him, you can always tell it's him from just a few seconds into the song. Sorta like Johnny Cash, it's him, his style, his way, all the way to the bank. Haha!

I think he has recorded hundreds of songs... Maybe more.

Thank you very much Jeff, I’ve been into Charlie Crockett lately and really enjoying Nathan Fleming. With what you and Dick Sexton posted recently I’ll be busy for the next few days!
Thanks again.

Question to Jeff or others-I don’t have that change on my 6th string anymore, got rid of it ‘ cause I don’t have split tuning on my ShoBud...
I guess a whole step lower bar slant on the 6th string as an option?
Any options with the 7th string?
Omit the 6th string and grab the 7th string as a substitute?

Thank you all very much for your nice comments. Nathan really has some fun licks on this album. Hope the tab is close - I do this by ear. Smile

Dana: try out the tab below for another option. Pick the 7th string at the 10th fret (same note as the 6th string lowered a full tone), then the 8th string and try that slide up to the slant. I find a two fret slant on adjacent strings can be tough. This way you only have to slant one fret.
