Slow Road - The Endless Potential of the Pedal Steel Guitar

Slow Road - The Endless Potential of the Pedal Steel Guitar

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global chill out chart, 3rd in the global ambient chart and 4th in the global chillout chart.

This mix is pretty much what the title says - a collection of quiet/ambient tracks featuring the beautiful sounds of the pedal steel guitar.

I did another pedal steel mix two years and since then it seems to be easier to find practitioners of the ambient steel guitar sound. Only one artist, Chuck Johnson, is repeated from that mix in this one. Here's the first mix:

All that's left to say is go relax with some steel guitar & maybe a good bourbon around a campfire.

Tracklist is in the comments.

I look forward to your mixes a lot. It's the perfect way to wake up in the morning with a cup of tea. Love them! Keep them coming :)

Thanks for listening and commenting! I love hearing how folks listen to the mixes. Cheers!


Same. I'm normally very particular about mixing my own days music, but when it comes to ambient I love not knowing what is coming and so low light mixes is the best. So good for working.
