        I actually joined last week so thought I might introduce myself.  I am just now learning to play a lap steel and looking to move to pedal steel asap.  I live in the Ft. Smith, Arkansas Metro Area, in a small community of Dora, (Oklahoma).  I have played bass guitar for 45 years.  Picked up the keyboard, 6 string, drums, harmonica along the way and decided I wanted to be a steel guitar player.

       I traveled full-time for a while with a gospel group and played with a couple of local groups while I was in high school.  I am looking to buy my first pedal steel soon and if I can become as fluent on it as the other instruments I will be happy.  I dont' read music, am self taught on all the instruments I play and looking forward to retirement in a couple years.
