There is a wonderful community of pedal steel players in the UK. About 18 of us met up last Sunday for David Hartley's steel guitar meeting - a fantastic day of learning, playing, listening to professional players and swapping notes. David's mastery as a steel guitarist is admired worldwide and his enthusiasm is inspirational. I came away with renewed determination to study this endlessly fascinating instrument. I took my camera along and you can get a flavour of the day's events here.
