A good reality check is in order first.
Playing pedel steel is doing 4 things at a time. you have a bar....picks on your fingers ...knee levers and pedals....it\'s almost like needing the independence of a drummer while playing a melodic instrument. The projected amout of time needed to play anything in tune is usually about 6 months. It is obviously an amazingly cool instrument...but don\'t expect a few licks to come as easy as playing a guitar.
