Lest talk sliding on your lap

Recommended Posts

I tend to prefer playing slide lap style. I play a Regal square neck in traditional bluegrass "high G" tuning. Got it from Elderly 10-12 yrs ago. I upgraded it with a spun cone, aluminum spider, and a better bridge insert. Its no Sheerhorn, but it sounds pretty good. I also have a Chandler 6 str lap steel. I started out on C6 tuning with it, but kinda gave up on that, its an unusual tuning and I never really got comfortable with it. So I strung it the same as my Regal, GBDGBD.bluegrass style.

dobro  & lap

 

One of these days Id like to get a round neck metal body of some kind.

I've made one of my own lap steels, and modified one for someone here (Travvybear) out of an old SX, and have a couple more in progress.

My first one, made almost 10 years ago is on the left:

handmade lappy on the left, Mel-o-Bar on the right

 

 

Below is the mod'd SX:

Great gear!    Never could get the hang of lap steel.   I have 3 Nationals (2-12 stringers), but they're all Spanish style.
