I have to admit the first instrument I ever wanted to play as a kid was lap steel. I've never taken the time to learn, or even to really investigate. My interest is more blues and rock than country. I notice there are quite a few lap steels being made for not a lot of money, and vintage instruments can be had for less than I expected. Who here plays lap steel? How hard is it to learn? Any suggestions for the budding lap steel player? Am I friggin' nuts?
