This lady knows how to get it done. Poor sound quality is more than made up for by the outstanding pedal steel guitar work by Sarah. Of course Paul Franklin's solo on "Walk of Life" is another excellent example of the instrument's capabilities.

For what it' worth, I once attended a party in Berkeley where the NewRPS (no Jerry) were in attendance. They didn't play anything.

Probably a (Loading) Zone ordinance.


No steel here, but what the heck.

Notes on Jerry and the instrument

http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/jerry-garcia-and-the-pedal-steel-guitar

I heard an interview with Jerry on the radio long ago.
He was asked, "Why did you stop playing pedal steel Jerry?"

Jerry's answer, "It broke and I never fixed it."

In the depths of Winter, 1986. The snow was high, the temps were low, (35 below Celsius at high noon) mid January in Banff...

Ice climbers were baking cookies and renting videos...

David Lindley and El Rayo Ex walked on stage at the King Eddie bar and blew the place up. A super great show.

This was the encore they used for dynamite:

Saw Lindley at a twilight concert here in SLC a few years back. What a great player he is. I've always been enamoured with the instrument. Jerry, Sneeky Pete, Lindley, whoever I love it. I saw the New Riders play in Gardner Montana in '76 at a rockin', riotous bar show. What a trip that was, literally.

There's a lot of open-tuned lap steel and weissenborn upthread, which is fine, but they lack the pitch-shifting capacity for weirdness that makes the pedal steel so unique. I play dobro and lap steel, so you might think it would be a really easy crossover, but just thinking about all the theory behind playin pedal steel, my head hurts! Too many options, too much math. Love to listen to the masters though.

But did you know that Crosby did an earlier version of Laughing when he was in the Byrds?

All these folks owe a huge debt to the Hawaiian master Sol Hoopii. Here he is (approx. 1930) on National tricone with one of the hottest rhythm sections ever, 2 ukuleles and string bass:

Can't believe there's no mention of the late, great Ben Keith who through Neil Young introduced many of us to pedal steel in settings outside of country. Such a mellow sound...

It's funny Willoughby, Ben Harper is really into these Plynesian Dobro style thingies that he plays on his lap, like a steel guitar. I'm such a sucker for steel and slide. Cool topic.

This amounts to heresy. The Grateful Dead, playing Dire Wolf, no steel guitar for miles. Maybe it's over in Niles Canyon, who knows.

Maybe they murdered the pedaler.

Of course I know the Dead play it w/o steel, I'm just sayin' I DON'T LIKE IT THATAWAY, Jerry.
I'm just a punk push-over for pedal steel and pedal-pushers.

It's like having peaches, though, instead of peach cobbler and ice cream.

Lastly, I hate to disabuse you Deadheads of your ideas about the size and menace of dire wolves, but according to the information gathered at La Brea, the legendary dire wolf weighed around one hundred fifty pounds, NOT six hundred pounds, and was a coward when not hunting in packs, or had the wisdom to skadoodle.
