lap steel & dobro

The lap steel is often seen as a beginner's instrument, a stepping stone to the pedal steel. In some cases this is true, but one should never forget that mastery of the non-pedaled steel guitar is a fine art, worthy of life-long study. This part of the catalog contains beginner method books as well as advanced studies.
