Got me a lap steel today and it's way more difficult for me than dealing with fretless...
My first try...

Sounds like you are coming at the lap steel from the regular guitar direction. Take a sideways look.

How? I come at everything from the guitar, that's what I know. But that was also the headache figuring whee the notes are on an open tuning.

Well, you know it much better than me, if you hadn't told us I wouldn't have twigged a lapsteel. The sideways bit was to hit it from a lap player's style.

Oh, and wear a Hawaian shirt too. :ninja:

I've been messing with lap steel for a couple of years now. I play BLUES ya know :ninja: . Open G and D are my favorites. Pretty easy to get that "down-home-stomp" style. As for leads, I'm not tryin' to shred on the thing...

Listen to Robert Randolph (pedal steel) for ideas, Jerry Douglas (dobro) for ideas and the guy who plays the hawaian shit on Spongebob Squarepants is Amazing!!! Now those guys can SHRED.

Holy Crap!!! Who could forget the great Junior Brown with his home-made "guit-steel"?? This man is simply amazing!!

How can you forget the Campbell brothers!?!?! :ninja:
So far it's in open E and that I'm not digging. I think I try fagbad...uhem I mean dadgad next. :D
But the idea is to not make it sound like a lap steel.

Sustainiac actually, I started using one about 3 weeks ago when Steve Kimock had me do a set with him and I had to compete with his lap steels sustain. WHich also got me curious in steel.
