First Lessons Pedal Steel by Jay Leach
This book is an excellent introduction to one of America's most quintessential instruments, the pedal steel. The first part of the book covers the skills required to play the instrument in the standard E9th tuning, including techniques for bar control, picking and the volume pedal. Pedals A B & C and knee levers D E & F are explained. The second half includes songs and licks that illustrate the full spectrum of the pedal steel's capabilities. Exercises and songs are presented in tablature and standard notation. The book comes with accompanying audio and video, including play-along tracks.
Author Jay Leach is a well-known studio musician from Los Angeles, California.
