75 years old and still playing, I have a Sho-Bud Super Pro and have been playing steel since 1969, I
also use a Roland 80X on stage.
Bought an Artisan lap steel about 4 years ago, tuned it to C6th and off
I went, though I have not used it on stage yet.
I live in England outside a town called READING and was raised here.
I did seven years in the army, Parachute Regiment, and while serving learned
to play the guitar.
Bought my first steel from a gent called Gordon Huntley who played
with Mathews Southern Comfort.
All my playing with international artistes began with Rose Maddox,
then Tex Ritter, Marvin Rainwater, Don Gibson, Carl Perkins, Dennis Mc
Cloud Weaver, and others, so I have had one hell of a good time thru my
time in country.
At this time I work with an American gent for the last 3 years working
old folks homes, an we call ourselves The Silver Surfers and we love
Well, that's a little about me, so here are a few tracks off my album
called, Bit's and Bob's, a collection of songs I have played over the
years, though the Hawaiian tracks are just recent, and intend doing a lot
more, hope you enjoy. All the tunes were played on my lap steel that I bought on E Bay.
The steel is an ARTISAN tuned to C6th played through a Holy Grail reverb
unit then into a FOLIO Notepad 6 channel desk, and into the computer.
