i'm just kinda starting. i think i know how to play G, then C with the pedals down to D.

but i guess i'm looking for a chord chart, or maybe a major scale laid out on the pedal steel...

anything really would be a help! i'll check out the steel guitar forum also.

thanks

Asuming you're in E9 tuning with at least an 'A and B' pedal and 4th string knee lever raise on the E (4th) string:

- play a G on fret 3, strings 3,4,5 open (or stgs 4,5,6, or 5,6,8, or 6,8,10, or even 1,2,5); these are the most common string 'grips'.

- another G: 3 frets up, engage A pedal and 4th string raise (same grips)
- another G: 10th fret A and B engaged.

I,IV,V progession in G:
3rd fret open,
3rd fret AB pedals,
5th fret AB pedals.

These are some very basics.
There is some very good instructional material out there, but mostly available for purchase - either used or new. Jeff Newman courses are pretty good and have been used by a lot of people, myself included. The one called 'Up From the Top' is a good place to start.

However, I really recommend that you find a teacher if for no other reason than to get started on the right track with regard to right hand mechanics, blocking, etc. You'll go much further much faster with a teacher.

Good luck.
