Today I had my first 1 hour lesson that included the basics and starting with tabs to Steel Guitar Rag.
My teacher suggested getting differnet stouter strings and tuning to E....EBG#EDE.
My first question was why and the response was ..."G tuning is good for two or three lessons but I can teach you so much more with E tuning."
He did a great job of teaching me acoustic and has been teaching for several decades and is very good steel guitar player.
I know nothing on either topic...that being E tuning and stouter strings.
All opinions welcome.
