I picked up a fine old Silvertone lap steel off of Ebay for cheap and my guitar guy has fixed up the electronics and set it up in open D. Makes very cool sounds. I hacked my way through Dead Flowers with my band last night and it sounded just good enough that I think I would like to play again (and will be permitted to do so), but bad enough that I really should learn a thing or two before I again subject others to my musical musings. Anyone here play? Favourite tunings? Recommendations as to web sites for instruction? Thanks.
