Nice score, Brad! It's funny, steels must be in the air, because I finally bit the bullet and grabbed a Simmons SD-10 E9 (3+4) steel just recently. It's been that one instrument that I don't have and have never played, and now after 2-3 weeks, I'm totally hooked. I need to learn how to tighten up the whole system, but it sounds killin. I was definitely looking for that ZB, though!

Also, everyone should go listen to the original Buck Owens "Together Again" to hear what ultimately turned Jerry on to pedal steel. Actually, the steel work on that single literally launched a generation of new pedal steel players in the '60s.
And right you are, an absolute monster of a player. Anyone looking to get their mind totally blown should find the Danny Gatton/Buddy Emmons "Redneck Jazz Explosion" show from the Cellar Door. Unreal. I'm also a huge fan of his work with John Hartford.
