Teach your children well.

This is a photo of my dad playing Pedal Steel with his band ‘Morninglory’ in the 70’s.  After seeing this picture I asked my dad if he still had that pedal steel?

“Yes.”

After 30 minutes of finding the guitar in the back closet and connecting all the pedal stems she was plugged into the old Fender Princeton Reverb amp ready to go.

Although the strings haven’t been changed in 25 years, the Pedal Steel sounded great.  Me, my brother-in law Joe and my dad enjoyed hearing the same songs we always play with the new warmth of the Fender.

The 38′ Gibson and the steel sounded great together.

  1. That’s awesome! I wish he still had the National guitar I found for him in ’71. Actually, I don’t know if that’s the Peach Bottom Boys, because it is definitely Jim Gruden on the bass, who played for Morninglory, the band your dad and I were in together until your dad got saved by bluegrass.

    Looking forward to meeting you in 2010!
