Get a close-up look at the virtuoso Lap Steel technique of Darick Campbell in this unique tutorial. As a member of the Campbell Brothers, Darick has played a large part in taking the 'Sacred Steel' sound from it's roots in the 1930s worship of the House Of God and introducing the music to an international secular audience. Starting with simple open tunings, Campbell discusses a full range of techniques and disciplines including:
- String blocking
- Vibrato and octave licks
- Bar technique
- Hammer-ons and pull-offs
See how Campmbell employs the tone, volume and Wah-Wah to give his melodies their distinctive singing quality. Then watch the man put it all into action with performances of gospel favourites Amazing Grace, I'll Fly Away, and Walk With Me, Lord.
