Ambient Twang

Ambient Twang

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global chill chart, 3rd in the global ambient chart and 4th in the global chillout chart.

I remember the first time I heard the Daniel Lanois tunes From Eno's Apollo album, I didn't really care for them. I didn't like the pedal steel guitar. I absolutely hated country music back then and I associated the sound of pedal steel with country.

Eventually, the tunes grew on me and I've come to love the sound of pedal steel guitar. I also came around on country-tinged music as I fell in love with indie-folk which can make great use of traditional instrumentation minus the pickups trucks, girls & booze of crappy country.

This brings me back around to pedal steel in ambient. There's not a ton of it out there but definitely enough for a good mix. There are 4 main practitioners of ambient twang - Daniel Lanois, Chuck Johnson, Bruce Kaphan and Chas Smith. All are in this mix as well as Eno/Lanois tunes, other tracks, and some YouTube recordings. Many of the tracks here use an actual pedal steel guitar and some use lap steel.

The tracklist is in comments.

Cheers!

Love it! I'm a huge fan of the pedal steel. I made a mix with a similar theme recently. Keep on rocking LLM!
