  1. Stay a While

I've always been a fan of Dusty Springfield. Lynne Popkowski wanted to sing "Stay a While," so I added my sax and steel to the tune, along with some Band in the Box samples.
Hope you enjoy the arrangement.

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
