It looks like I made the big time. I guess I should put a down payment on a tour bus. Thanks, DJ Mike Gross http://www.swinginwest.com/shows/show_092814.html

INTROS, FILLS, AND THE OLD SWITCHEROO

Chuck Lettes' Pedal Steel Guitar Seminar

:instruments:pedal b&w.jpg

 

 I’ve divided my two hour E9th seminar into three parts:

 Part 1: Intros/turnarounds

 Every steel player should have a few intros available to kick off different tunes. They can also do double duty as turnarounds.  I’ll demonstrate some of my favorites.

 Part 2 Sears and Roebuck (Generic) fills and licks.

 Like the section on intros, these fills/licks work with many different tunes and can spark your own creativity. I also will illustrate some open string effects that I enjoy.

 Part 3 The Old Switcheroo-E9th to C6th

 Creating C6th sounds on E9th is easier than lugging around the second neck. I’ll demonstrate some ways to create these sounds.

 

When - Saturday, Aug 28, 2021, 1 – 3 pm

Where - Dougie G’s Lounge

             10217 Quivas St.

 Thornton, CO 80260

 

Bring your steel and some headphones.  I’ll provide mp3s of the rhythm tracks and some steel tablature of the exercises that I will illustrate. Please contact me to reserve a spot.
