Well, this doesn’t have anything to do with metal stamping, but it is about steel, pedal steel guitars, and, what the hey!, it’s the weekend.
I like pedal steel guitar, when it’s well played, which isn’t all that often. It’s got a unique sound – like a guitar, but then, not like a guitar. And they sit to play them.
Changing times and tunes have cut deeply into an American musical icon — the pedal-steel guitar.
Not only is it a difficult instrument to play, but most who mastered it are a bit long in the tooth, and there aren’t many younger musicians willing to learn from them.
And it takes a while to get good at it.
