So there are lots of books and videos on how to play pan - all the ones I've seen are for beginners. Anybody know of Advanced technique books? I see LiamTteague does a beginner book- I would love for him to do one for more advanced players.

Hi Eric; there is an excellent book "Steelpan Playing with Theory" by Salah Wilson. He is a professional panist, educator...… from Trinidad, living in Canada.

You can buy the book at steelpanplus.com/salahpan--contact.html. I have included some pictures of the book's cover, chapter topics.  Very complete book.
