Well that sounds even awesome -er! 
I just finished getting 2 of David Berrys tunes done but haven't played them out yet.  
Yours are some of my favorites at gigs.

Yes!  Very soon!  I am in the process of purchasing a home, so life is very hectic right now.  I will have time soon though.  I want to start playing on a regular basis.  Wanna do Third Thurs again when the weather is warmer?  I need to learn some new tunes, too.  :)

Hi Brad,

  I am actually the tech guy at Avella HS.  I created the account so I could be sure I enabled all the necessary URLs.  Our band director and his kids will be using the site.  I wouldn't know the top of a steel drum from the bottom.  You should be hearing from them soon.

Thanks for the Welcome. I am 62 years old and have been working on my bucket list. Learning to play Pan is next on my list. as soon as I can find the money I will be making that purchase . Do you suggest a tenor Pan or starting with double seconds??

Great site, Brad! We've really enjoyed playing your arrangements over the years in Steel Doin' It!

Definitely not a pro on any instrument. But I did make the Kansas All-State band and All-State orchestra back in the day! Is it okay to brag about trumpet stuff I did 100 years ago?

Hi Brad. I have been watching your videos for a long time.  I like the easy way you present things.  Thanks for the help you give us the steel pan begginers.  Rey

thanks rey, I'm glad that you enjoy them.  I really have had a great time making them. My son is the brains behind the camera and does all of the editing with sound and video.

Brad, I heard a group play "You were always on my mind" the other night and it sounded great. Is this song on one of your CD's?

Also thanks for directing me to this site. It's great. -Joe

Tuning in Germany / Europe

Hello everyone, 

yesterday my pan was retuned. in 1.5 hours it sounds very nice again.

Mr. Eckhard Schulz and Martin Speck explained a lot to me about the Pan that I had acquired. Very interesting.

Here is the address if someone wants a tuning in Europe or a new Pan Made in Germany.

seeking backtracks and sheet music

I play double tenor and am looking to buy quality backtracks with corresponding sheet music to add  to my repertoire. I'm a strict reader and weak with improv.  Brad Shores has been a Big help and I have all 9 of his books.  Any other suggestions for expanding my repertoire?  Thanks!

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…
