Playing with The Rhythm Rangers

Fly on the wall recorder (Zoom H2) at Redwood Cafe, Cotati CA, 4/20/2018. I’m playing the new Sierra S-10 pedal steel built by Ross Shafer and tuned to D6th. I also used some effects pedals – the “organ” sound on “The Weight” is actually pedal steel through an Electro Harmonix POG2 and a Stymon Lex. The distortion effect heard on several songs is a Sarno Earth Drive.

  1. Bob, My father had a band that play guitar and sang with from about 1938 to about 1948, and they were known as The Rhythm Ranger. They played for square and round dances in those days. I n people homes, Grange Halls and place there was. They played every week over the radio in Oil City, Pa, my sister and I sang several times with them. I was around 7 and my sister around 8-9. I learned to play regular guitar around the age of 9, the pedal steel age around 43, no time to start, but yet, it’s never to later. I love it, and presently own five. Zum Encore S-10, Emmons S-10, Emmons D-10 (Restoring), Zum SU-12, Carter SDU-12, to many lessons to list, five amps, and for other asseccories, forget.
