C D E F G A B CC = 1 D = 2 E = 3 F = 4 G = 5 A = 6 B = 7You can look at this many ways.You can just take tones 1, 3, and 5 and flat the 3 and 5.So that would be C, E, and G but you’d flat the E, making it Eb and the G, making it Gb.C diminished = C…Continue

Has anyone here bought one of the new Hudson six string pedal guitars?  I'd love so see some feedback from actual players.

I have watched Tony Browne's "Crying Steel Guitar" on YouTube numerous times.  I would like to know how to get those pretty licks from :43 to :47. I can repeat most of the other chords but just can't get those little runs within that section. Can anyone explain how to get that sound?

 I noticed it is a ShoBud.  Would that be set up the same as the Mullen?

thank you James I will check it out,

Jerry Cooper, you might want to check out as a resource for 6 string lap steel. It is mainly geared toward Hawaiian music, but the info is valid for anything. Lots of tips, tab, scales, info on guitars, etc. is also a very good resource.

thanks for checking Henry. I have found quit a lot and did find where I can purchase one. Just thought I would check here first as long as the subject came up.

I have been asked by Ll oyd Kermet how to print out the tabs and chord charts without printing out the whole site. With my computerb system I just have to right click on the page I want to print , a menu comes up, then left click on print picture. That page will just be printed.  If any of our members have a different way of printing please post it on this site. It would be helpfull to all of us.  I will be reposting the chord charts on this site so that they will more accesable.

Welcome to all new members and hope that we can all learn to play the steel. I personally have a twin neck sierra, 8 pedals and 3 knee levers. never played one before or any other instrument. Am working very hard at it and all helpful hints are welcomed.
