I began my career in the music business in 1950 when I first started taking lessons on the steel guitar.
Before long, I was playing local Jamborees and dances around West Texas and a Saturday morning radio show.
We moved to Houston when I was offered a job at Gilley’s Club…
These songs are off an album I played on while with the band Rio Grande. It was recorded in 1970 and released in 1971.
One afternoon I was at a friend’s house, foolin’ around with this Little Buddy student model steel. We recorded these two songs just to see how it sounded. You be the judge.
Here’s a couple of great tunes off another album I played on with the band Gladstone. The album is entitled “Lookin’ For A Smile”, recorded and released in 1973.
Here’s one of my past projects. It is a ten string lap steel with a keyless tuning head.
I’m sure you have heard it said, “Oh, he could make a 2×4 with strings sound good.” Well, I decided to build a 2×4 lap steel just for fun.
This is a project I started back in 2003. I began with two nice pieces of Honduran mahogany, two inches thick.
If you’d like to hear more great tunes performed by yours truly… Then pop over to youtube and give a listen. Feel free to subscribe and drop me a like as well. I’d really appreciate it!
