20 Instrumentals written by some of the greatest steel guitarists ever to pick up a tone bar ... Jerry Byrd, Speedy West, Joaquin Murphey, Herb Remington, Kayton Roberts, Don Helms, Noel Boggs, and more.

C6th tuning (low to High) C E G A C E,  is one of the most popular tunings used by lap steel players around the globe across a wide variety of musical genres. This 82-page book includes many of the classic tunes steelers have loved playing for many years as well as terrific but lesser-known gems that deserve exposure.  Though these songs were originally done in a variety of tunings, all songs are arranged here in 6-string C6th tuning or C6th/A7 tuning - a variation of C6th where just string six is raised one half step. All songs are easily adaptable to 8-string guitars.

20 ARRANGEMENTS IN STANDARD NOTATION AND TABLATURE

PLUS ... Fretboard Maps for C6th and C6th/A7 tuning, Tips for Tuning, Blocking, and playing Harmonics and Background Info on all of the songs.
