In the pre-media, pre-tablature age, comprehensive studies in musicianship were a regular part of a steel guitarist's training. The earliest generation of acoustic steel guitarists was well versed in reading music and in the techniques of the instrument.  This book is both a fascinating look back at a bygone era and a still-practical method for building technical skills on the instrument. The book includes more than 100 Daily Exercises that show position playing, picking technique, tremolo technique and more. In standard notation (only). The book includes a chart of all the notes on the fretboard and has no restrictions on printing some or all of its 62 pages.
