Steel Guitar Rag    by Leon McAuliffe

     This is a very simplistic version. You should add your own grace
notes, etc. and make it SWING. I haven't indicated any timing (anyone
know of a tab writing program for the Mac that can be adapted to the
Steel Guitar?). Listen to the many recordings for timing. My favorite
is the 1935 Texas Playboys' version, with Leon(at age 18) playing it.
     I have indicated a few chords, so if you get people to play this
with you it will make it easier. Most people really like playing this
song regardless of their axe.

My Copedant:

want to find a way to do it without the pedals.)
