Abstract
Title: Pedal Steel Guitar. How to develop a personal playing technique for an unusual instrument.
This study describes how a personalized version of a pedal steel guitar can be constructed. It also describes technique exercises with the purpose of developing a personal style of playing the instrument. The results of the improved technique are displayed through the ”portfolio
method”. The study makes an informative contribution in a Swedish context since there are no written sources, and no or very few informed domestic teachers and instrumentalists. In combination with video samples the text also has the purpose of introducing new players tothe instrument and its technique.
Abstract (Swedish)
Detta arbete är en beskrivning över hur man beskriver ett tillvägagångssätt för att konstruera en personlig variant av instrumentet pedal steel guitar. Här visas också hur man kan skapa
egna teknikövningar för att utveckla sin spelstil. För att nå och redovisa resultat på ett effektivt sätt har jag använt mig av portföljmetoden. Studien är det första beskrivande, reflekterande och dokumenterande arbetet kring pedal steel guitar i Sverige. Då det i landet saknas lärare på instrumentet kan undersökningens resultat även användas i pedagogiskt syfte för den som vill lära sig spela instrumentet.
