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.

Love Jerry, Lindley, and all the rest here!

Robert Randolph has brought a whole new level of rock'n'roll to the steel.

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.

I have a box full of cassette tapes of amazing Hawaiian performers from the 30's through the 70's.

Well Jerry Douglas is a dobro player, but yeah, other than that he'd get mentioned for sure!.......

Dipper,
damn man, I just listened to that whole David Crosby album on monday, only my 300,000th time (one of my faves).

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...
