CINEMATIC LAP STEEL: This lap steel guitar (a Chandler RH-2) is strung w/D'Addario ECG26 "Chromes" Flat Wound strings, in standard tuning. (Usually people play these in open tunings, like Open-E, Open-G, C6 Tuning, etc.) Though I didn't really try it in this vid, I’ve gotten decent at simulating “pedal steel” with this, using a volume pedal, FX, and angling the tone bar (well, there's a little of that at 00:47). But it can also scream like regular “blues rock” slide guitar, if restrung w/roundwounds. I'm using a LATCH LAKE Hawaiian Bar (instead of a "normal" slide).

Thanks for checking out this quasi Daniel Lanois-inspired noodling! (Think "film score" background "ambient tone" atmosphere, rather than shredding slide guitar madness!)
