Thread Name: Chromatic Harp, Pedal Steel, diabolical!
Subject: RE: Chromatic Harp, Pedal Steel, diabolical!
It seems to me I read somewhere that Little Walter played a chromatic harp. The piece talked about the added difficulty and the extra air required. I've often thought I'd like to try one out but it was never a high enough priority to shell out the big (by comparrison) bucks.

I remember standing around watching Shot Jackson play and wondering how long it might take to learn to keep track of all the details at the same time. Nowdays it's a rare country band that carries a pedal steel. Too bad.
