Al originally heard this old-time guitar piece as "Steel Guitar Rag," made famous in the thirties by steel player Leon McAuliffe. However, the tune had originally been recorded as a bottleneck instrumental by Sylvester Weaver back in 1927. Al's version combines the two and, as you'll see, it makes a great acoustic showpiece. He plays an alternating bass while picking out the melody on the high strings and uses vibrato while moving the chords to imitate the slide sound. It's a compelling effect. Intermediate. 11 min.
