Follow-Up to zenmindbeginner's Massive Pickup Sale

Recommended Posts

Way back in November I bought @zenmindbeginner's Seymour Duncan Little '59 pickup and put in my cheapie Rogue lap steel. The original pickup was weak, single-coil garbage, but it sounds much better now. Thanks, Geoff!

Here it is on "Tough Times," originally written and recorded by John Brim (of "Ice Cream Man" fame) in 1953. I've been playing open-G on lap steel for quite a while, but this is my first foray into open-E on a lap. So my vocabulary of open-E licks is still a work in progress.

Cool playing! 
The only one thing I had associated with lap steel was country so far. But yes, it’s simply slide playing regardless of genre.

Sounds great! I need to spend more time on my lap steel. I play it in open G & E as well.
