Slide Rules - book of tunings

Postby VolkMedia » Thu May 26, 2011 11:26 am

If you play bottleneck or lap steel, you may be interested in checking out Slide Rules, my book about tunings.

Here's what The Fretboard Journal said about it:

Slide Rules: Tunings for Lap Steel, Bottleneck, Resophonic, and Indian Slide Guitar, by Andy Volk
Frequent FJ contributor Andy Volk has complied an excellent guide to the various tunings used on six, eight and ten string slide guitars.The book includes a guide to string gauges, which is invaluable for setting up your instrument; a brief history of the slide guitar; and a section on Hindustani slide styles. It's only 38 pages long, but just about every page contains information that is almost impossible to find anywhere else.
