everything steel players need
Welcome one and all! This group is devoted to the players and fans of lap and console steel guitar and those wonderful instruments. Lap steels were at the cutting edge of guitar technology in the early thirties and ushered in the dawn of the electric guitar age. Rapid design development brought us the double neck, triple neck and even quad necked instruments along with numerous string arrangements that were quickly embedded in Hawaiian, country, western swing, big band and early rock and roll music. Players of the time developed countless tunings in an attempt to find a unique voice for themselves leaving behind the bewildering array of tuning options we know today. These incredible guitars always had a high degree of individualism that allowed the players to create a unique musical personality that still appeals to many of us today.
