The C6th Copedent


The C6th “Texas” copedent in commonly applied to the back neck of a double neck (D-10) pedal steel. It evolved from the popular western swing steel guitar tunings of yesteryear, when players would switch necks in mid phrase to get different kinds of chords. The design philosophy behind the C6th copedent provides all of those chords easily on a single neck.
