Sliding into Redwing! 


It's the 15th of the month, so that means a new song for the Depot EP! I'm not sure if you remember, but when I went to Point Pelee in June, I went with a plan to start learning a new instrument but offered no clues. Well, that was lap steel! Now, the truth is I've owned one for a few years, and I've picked around on it a bit, but I never really got comfortable, and I certainly never learned any songs. Conveniently for me, there are a bunch of similarities between lap steel and banjo, so I start at a bit of an advantage at least.

I put a bunch of work into learning how to play Redwing on, well, everything for the next Depot EP tune. This time I took a different approach to building an instrumental tune, and a different approach to making the one-man-stringband video! Let me know what you think of this one, will you? Still definitely working on both pickin' and grinnin' at the same time, but we'll get there!
