NGD Sho Bud D10

Recommended Posts

Well, call me crazy but after much back and forth deliberation, I have decided to teach myself to play pedal steel guitar. And since I rarely go into any endeavor lightly, I bought a really nice one. A late 70's Sho Bud D10 Professional. She's a beauty.

We'll see how long it takes for me to be proficient enough to bring it out to a gig. I'm guessing two years. But I have a music room where I can set it up plugged into an amp and just go sit and woodshed on it. There's dozens of instructional videos on youtube and I figure I can loop some rhythm tracks with my 6 string and play over them for practice. Stay tuned.....

She's a beauty.  I do love me some good pedal steal, just a luscious instrument.  Good luck, I understand they take quite a bit to master.

Beautiful 

Lock it into a super reverb or Twin w/ JBL's and it will part your hair at 30 ft.

I've been quietly looking for a '50s Supro lap top just for fun.

How good is your tuner ;)

20 strings, 8 pedals, 2 years - sounds right.  Well, I expect it will by then anyway.  Congrats and enjoy!

Wow! You are diving right in. Ive got a single 10 string in e9. Lots of killer info online. I would recommend learning to play the harmonized scale via pedals with one stationary bar position. This was the huge breakthrough I needed. Good luck its crazy. I also found that the shoes makes a big difference. I cant use anythi g but sneakers

Yeah I know. The good news is that this guitar was recently refurbished by a company called Show Pro in Nashville. So should be working as designed for a while.

 

Moving parts you say?

Looks like roughly 3/4 as many moving parts as a Washburn Wonderbar...lol

I did a few gigs with a band with a steel guitarist. That 2-neck Sho-Bud was his weapon of choice. Fantastic sound, great precision, and great source of dynamics and musicality.
