Full description


The tuning 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 "slant" bar positions, especially the reverse slants, but the end result is well worth the effort. This excellent text, written by Steel Guitar and Country Music Hall of Fame member DeWitt Scott, is written in standard notation and tablature.Contents :
