Basic C6th Nonpedal Lap Steel Method by DeWitt Scott

96 page book + online audio

Made famous by the legendary Jerry Byrd, the C6 nonpedal system of steel guitar has many advantages due to its versatility. It is especially useful in playing two and three-string chord combinations and for easy single string passages. Patience, dedication and many hours of practice are needed to perfect the "slants", especially the reverse "slants", but the final result is well worth the effort. This excellent text, written by Steel Guitar and Country Music Hall of Fame member DeWitt "Scotty" Scott, is in notation and tablature.

This method starts at square one on the 6-string lap steel, and takes you gradually through simple songs and techniques to finished arrangements of classics like "Aloha Oe" and "St. Louis Blues". Even advanced players will enjoy Scotty's arrangements towards the end of the book.
