I am a weekend musician (currently working with the Gifford Bros. Band in the Kansas City Area) and have been playing steel since 1969. Prior to the steel, I played lead guitar and some bass. My day job is LAN/WAN Network Manager for the Social Security Admin.
I play a Franklin D-10 with the original Bill Lawrence humbucking pickups. I mainly play through a Peavey Session 500 amp, and sometimes use a ProfexII as an effects unit.
My copedent is as follows and is not too unusual except for the 7th string pull (F# to G) on the E9th neck and lowering the 2nd string (E to Eb) on the C6th.
E9th Copedent # note LKL LKV LKR Ped1 Ped2 Ped3 RKL RKR 1 F# __________________________________________+G#________ 2 Eb _______________________________________________-D/C#_ 3 G# ___________________________+A________________________ 4 E __+F__________-Eb________________+F#_________________ 5 B _______-A#/C_________+C#_________+C#_________________ 6 G# ___________________________+A____________-G/F#_______ 7 F# ________________________________________________+G___ 8 E __+F__________-Eb____________________________________ 9 D ________________________________________________-C#__ 10 B _______-A#/C_________+C#_____________________________
- The 7th string pull gets me some Emmons licks and the stock Ernest Tubb guitar lick.
- I have a “feel” stop on the second string for the half/full tone drops.
- I have two splits on the E9th neck:
- The 5th string drops a half tone B to Bb open and with the pedal down drops from C# to C which gives me a minor.
- The 6th string open drops a full tone to F# and with the pedal down it drops a full tone A to G which also gives me a minor.

- The E string drop on the C6th is my “Merle Travis” lever and I use it with the Merle Travis / Chet Atkins style picking I do on the steel.
