And now I see.  I'm not familiar with steel players, but he's got a great style.

That kind of switching between different-styled instruments like that looks inherently hard.  The "cheatin'" way to do it is to have a musical pause or have another instrumentalist play a bar or two while you switch. It'll be interesting to see after he gets better at it, and maybe a few more mods on that guitar thing to make for faster switching.

well,  jr.'s first design that he has played for ever is basically a double neck with tele on one and steel without pedals on the other....
here is an example

Jr is awesome at this with the original git steel.  I remember seeing him at a bluegrass festival at a collage in Wilksboro,, NC.   He’s mesmerizing when he plays.  Great sense of humor in his lyrics.    Wonderful Musician! Does the Earnest Tubb thing.  Actual country music from the 40s-50s.

he does. Wrote a song about it "my baby don't dance to nothing but Ernest tubbs"

Can't wait to see him on the new one with the pedals.

Modern lyrical topics sung over timeless old country.  Not a bad way to guard the flame.

Someone get that man a cranial implant that sends actuator cv over wifi.  =D
