In Playing The Steel Guitar
The Pupil must rely upon the ear
to a great extent in making the
notes or chords. To get the true tone
the frets denote the positions of the
Steel where it is to be placed to make
the notes which can be played either
flat or sharp by placing the steel the
least bit higher or lower than the guide
of the fret. You can play the Steel
Guitar in higher tones than are marked
.by the frets producing some very bril-
liant effects.
