Wishing you a Happy 2013! Well, another new year has arrived and we're working on some great new instructional products.
Our focus from this year out will be on creating some new instructional DVDs and other materials to give you the tools and background to really help you learn how to play
pedal steel guitar. Stay tuned for more information on our exciting new products.
Once in a while we have customers write in and tell us how our products have helped them to learn steel guitar. We always enjoy it when customers write in with comments and suggestions. Here is one testimonial we recently received:
"Dick I enjoyed seeing you in Dallas. Last year I purchased your Texas Dance
hall fav's with the 4 levels. I have just started this since the show this
year. Long story why I waited a year to get around to your stuff. I have a
lot of your teaching stuff.
"Anyway this is awesome. I am having a great time following your suggestions
and making up my own. I have found this to be a great teaching tool for me.
I hope you create more in the future as this has helped me greatly. Hope
this find you and Lois is the best of health. God Bless you for all you do
for us beginners."
