I done went and bought me a steel!

It's some kind of old single neck 10 string pedal steel from around the 70s. It apparently belonged to Matt Mays for a while. The pedals and legs and all that got smashed along the way, so it's now a 10 string lap steel.

I'm super excited. I play to restore it to being a real PSG eventually.

Congrats. I'm envious not of your score, but the fact that you must have mastered your six string for a sufficient time that now you're looking for new challenges. And that humbles me.

I'm no master, but the steel is a lifelong dream of mine. A PSG is my favorite music sound.

That awesome!

What tuning are you thinking of using?

There's a lot of pedal steel in Matt mays coyote album, listen to "take it on faith"

Probably an extended C6 or E13 for now.

I live 10 minutes from Matt's home, I've heard that song many many times haha.

On the topic of Canadian steel, Blue Rodeo's Five Days IN July album has some stunning steel work
