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.

Hey Rey, I do have Salah's book.  It is excellent, He does touch on improvisation in the last 4 pages. But what I am interested in is more advanced techniques. For example taking a solo recording by -say Andy Narrel  - and analyzing the self  accompaniment or certain kind of fast runs, how to incorporate melody and chords, maybe even using 4 mallets -that kind of thing.

Sounds like you're looking for theory?  I tackled very tiny pieces of theory in a few short videos.  I don't think it'll go as deep as you want.  But here's the 7th chord arpeggio video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPGIRvXo6_E

I know this doesn't actually help, but this is something I'm working on putting together! Good to know there is a need for it!

Pan Kat

Alternate Mode Pan KAT



Up for auction is a Pan KAT Midi Steel Drum that I used to play reggae tunes.  I have had the Pan KAT for 10 + years but really only used it for about a year to play solo steel drum and some Jimmy Buffett tunes for friends (I am a guitar player).  The original unit cost about $1,800 without the case and I am offering it up for $825 plus shipping.  I used an older Roland MIDI sampler (not included) for the steel drum sounds but IndigiSounds (YouTube link…
