Thread Name: Chromatic Harp, Pedal Steel, diabolical!
Subject: RE: Chromatic Harp, Pedal Steel, diabolical!
Back 30 years and I'm doing the music store gig parttime. One of the guys was a pretty fair Steel player and one day I came in to find him in the middle of a long conversation with a Fender rep (who also played). after listening to this facinating conversation for awhile, I knew any thoughts I might have of playing Pedal Steel were long gone.........I think they may have been speaking a different language.

Diabolical is an apt term. And when you realize what does which and all that, it also occurs to me, "Who thought all this weird shit up?"
