Lap Steel. Anyone do it without poles?

Recommended Posts

I've got the lap steel bug via messing around with a cigar box guitar and am now seriously going to learn to play.

I'm even selling some of my bass gear :o to finance one of wonderful kitsch 1940s / 50s Oahu / Supro / National type amps.

Any help in pointing me in the right direction playing and amp wise would be much appreciated.

Just bought a cheap one... Considering putting baritone strings on it, just to see what it sounds like. Would I need to change the tuners? (I think I need to anyway, these are battered and don't seem to adjust or hold tune well.)

(Edit: It may yet wind up with bass strings on, but that would need proper surgery, and maybe a J pup...)
