E9 Lap Steel Guitar – Demo

E9 tuning, Lap Steel Guitar – Demo

I’ve been experimenting with E9 tuning on lap steel lately. It’s an easy re-tune from C6 tuning. It’s the same as strings 4 through 9 of E9 pedal steel guitar. There are a lot of pedal steel sounds in this tuning, especially with slants. Here’s a quick demo, video and tab. The tab is for the first half of the video. The second half is basically the same, same chord positions, slightly different picking patterns. Enjoy.

(low to high) D E F# G# B E
