Playing Lap Steel Guitar on one’s Lap Steel Guitar although looks good can cause all sorts of neck and back ache after long hours of practice. Plus playing using a stand placing your Lap Steel Guitar at an adequate height is the way forward. This reduces any causes 0f wrist, neck or back injury in the long term.
A Projector stand is a great affordable solution to place your Lap Steel Guitar on. Portable, adjustable legs and light enough also includes carry handle and easily removable telescopic legs etc. Essentially exactly what you want.
been using one for years.
Here is the exact model I use however there may be newer versions which do the same thing.
So after doing some research and hearing MANY Berkelee guitarists who shred and believe in the CAGED system. I started theorising there must be a similar connectivity in repetitive shapes on the Lap Steel Guitar.
So I started with the modes in my Theory Tuning and realised that I can play all 7 modes using the same shape. If I study the Ionian scale in all it’s shapes that means I can play all the modes in all the shapes up and down the neck.
Really cool. So I am trying to find the name to give this technique as on the steel depending on your tuning it is obviously a different shape but I believe this to be revolutionary research or if any of you have prior experiences please share.
Collective knowledge achieves a solution much faster.
Check out my fretboard layout on my blog and you’ll see what I mean. It has the notes if the Ionian scale highlighted. Move two frets down it’s the Dorian. Enjoy.
