LAP STEEL GUITAR” If you’re captivated by the fat whine of a Supro steel, the cutting cry of a tripleneck Fender Stringmaster, or the mellow twang of a Weissenborn hollowneck acoustic, you’ll flip over Lap Steel Guitar. Author Andy Volk has interviewed or profiled more than 40 great players of all styles — including Hawaiian, country, Western swing, gospel, Cajun, and roots rock — and gathered info crucial to anyone who wields a tone bar. ...
“LAP STEEL GUITAR”A must have for non pedal steel players!! Lots of great pictures and information!!
EXPLORING C6TH LAP STEEL”... I also would recommend Andy’s book if you have some knowledge of the way music works and the basics of theory. I recently acquired it and, being a steel guitar player, 10 years later I am still learning new things by going through this book. I can’t recommend it highly enough
EXPLORING C6TH LAP STEELI purchased Andy Volk’s Exploring C6 Lap Steel book, and wow! This is perfect. Exactly what I was looking for. I’m slowly working my way through the book, and couldn’t be happier with the helpful explanations and diagrams of rudiments like scales and arpeggios in C6 tuning. Well worth the purchase.
I’m slowly working my way through your book of B11 Arrangments and finding it great, particularly the Jazzier tunes. As an ex-armpit player, relatively new to Lap Steel, I’ve not yet delved into Haiwaian tunes, but I”ll try some of them soon. ... I really like the way that your arrangements leave the tunes open for improvisation and personal changes. The tab is easy to follow and the chords are great when input to BIAB to make backing tracks. I’m a believer when it comes to your books.
EXPLORING C6TH LAP STEEL Thank you for such an excellent book!
EXPLORING C6TH LAP STEEL ... Can’t believe how much material you managed to cover and explain so well, both the technical and feeling aspect; great drawings & quotes ...
18 ARRANGEMENTS IN B11Received your B11 book in good order and I am thrilled to have it. ...
EXPLORING C6TH LAP STEEL... big thanks to you Andy for putting in the time and effort for a wonderful book. Great for someome getting into C6 like me. As a Rock and Blues player, the open tunings E, E7, G etc. have been my staple for many years, mainly because the bands I work with need those tunings. I’ve now time to move sideways into C6.
~ GUITAR DREAMS ~Andy Volk has gathered together a group of artists that seem to transcend a simple “guitar player” or “guitar maker” tag and are the real definition of Guitar Hero. They have each devoted their lives to their instrument and have contributed mightily to making music for all of us to enjoy. For me, one of the best things about this wonderful book is the fact that I was unfamiliar with several of the players and Volk’s interviews and writing only made me want to immediately look them up so that I could hear the music behind the stories. Anyone interested in guitar players or playing, in myriad styles going way beyond the household names of Clapton, Hendrix, Atkins, et al should get this book now.
I just want to say hi and thank you for your AMAZING work on these books! Happy customer from Stockholm, Sweden.
Your C6 book has helped me realise it is a completely different instrument and it has got me starting on the basics. Now I am working on damping and exploring the scales and intervals. Loving it.
Books for lap steel guitarists, slide and bottleneck guitarists and musicians and players of all instruments.
