Trying to find out is there anyone who actively plays Lap Steel 6, 8 or 10 strings in church. Why and what do you thing it brings to the mix that is maybe different and useful. I am interested in making one ( an eight string) and playing it , but not sure where it would fit into the contemporary music we have at church. My back ground is playing in church keyboard, mandolin, bass guitar and banjo( not in church though), but now I am older, I am looking for a change.
If it's a bad idea then that's ok, but I need to get some direction, though I am determined to still give it a go - with making and learning to play to praise God with, can anyone help please?
