The pedal steel guitar that we know today is generally seen with two tunings E9 and C6. However, there are many different tunings that are used. Which tuning do you use? In my opinion, when starting out stick with E9 and C6. As you learn the pedal steel guitar you may wish to experiment with other tunings all dependent on your playing style. Instead of repeating what is already out there I have included a couple of links to sites that provide some very good information.

I think most of you will agree my photos I use are pretty darned good if I say so myself. However, I am not patting myself on the back or taking credit for these amazing photos. The credit goes to my girlfriend Andrea Ratcliff. Girl, you are amazing! Take a look at her blog for more amazing photos.

Well I finished Walking After Midnight and my instructor and I took a different path for my next song. We decided to tackle How D'ya Do. Jerry Byrd is known to be the Master of touch and tone and as I started learning this song it is easy to see why he is noted for this. Mess up just a little and your done. I have been at it about three weeks and I am not half way through this song. Part of this is that my practice time has reduced to 5 to 10 hours per week due to just life stuff. As I write this post, my amp is warming up to practice today's lesson. I will keep you posted on my progress.
