Learn To Play C6 Lap Steel 2 DVD or Download Video Set
Above is my YouTube video of “SleepWalk” on the Lap Steel – this shows the style of the DVD lessons. The arrangement for Sleep Walk is included in your order!
This 2 DVD (or Download Video) “Learn To Play C6 Lap Steel Guitar” set runs approx. 5 hours.
DVD#1 begins with well-structured lessons teaching you the basics of left and right hand technique, major and minor chord forms, scales, bar slants, behind-the-bar bends (ala pedal steel), dominant chords, and licks and chord moves. You will be a capable Lap Steel Player after studying this first course
The example songs “Amazing Grace”, “Green Grass of Home” and Sleep Walk are included on DVD#1
DVD#2 continues with more example performances and backing tracks. (Note that DVD#2 includes the end of DVD#1 s you don’t miss any example pieces!) including a slow Blues, an uptempo Rock/Blues, a typical Pop song structure with minor chords and a bridge, and a fast Western Swing in the Style of “Steeling Home”, that I call “Stealing Helmes”, in tribute to Don Helmes, the father of C6 lap steel guitar!
The camera view is over-the-shoulder, so you see the lap steel on screen as you see yours in your lap. A comprehensive Ebook is included, as well as audio examples to go with the eBook – there are even additional examples in the eBook to help you expand your knowledge of scales and licks without making the videos endlessly long.

A lot of people ask where to get the proper strings for C6 Lap Steel Tuning –
Look no further – they are only $6.99 (!!) on Amazon. I can”t find a better price anywhere else, and they are the proper gauge GHS strings.
These are the strings I use, and haven’t had one break on me, nor have they gone dull sounding after 2 years.
Hi, do you post your DVDs to the UK? and what would be the cost – Thanks Phil
Yes, we do. Shipping is included in the price,
