This is a mixed bag of questions for tabs, tricks and techniques. My worship band wants to play this song and have asked that I play the pedal steel part. Chords are D, A, G, F#7 So... how do I play this on guitar and sound like a pedal steel? Anyone care to tab it out? Any tricks or techniques to play this song? It is Southern Gospel style and I have never played Southern Gospel. I have never played a pedal steel before, nor do I own one. I have never played slide before either. I get the volume swells and delay/echo/reverb. Could I play this in standard tuning or should I change to a different tuning? It sounds like you slide into the notes, or is that just the volume swells or a combination of the two?
