Hey Reece, I Did It!

Tom Bradshaw ventured into a recording studio long ago to create this pedal steel instructional EP record. I especially like Estralita. Tom writes:

At the time of the recording (and throughout my playing career), I used an A6th copedent.  I altered it into a D9th by employing a knee lever to raise the 3rds (strings 2 and 6 which are C#’s) a half tone.  For the tablature I provided for the “Hey Reece …” thing, I then converted my playing into the E9th.  To be honest, I hardly knew what I was doing in the 9th configuration.  To make matters worse for my ego, I gave a copy of the “Hey Reece…” thing to Jeff Newman.  He was within days of releasing his first E9th course.  He sent me a copy of his “Music To Steel By”.  I was really depressed with my playing, as compared to Jeff’s.
