I happen to love arranger keyboards in addition to a "standard" stage keyboard my Kurzweil PC3.

This caught my eye and man, he has the keyboard steel technique nailed. I know there's lots of country pickers here and while a real guitarist might not be too impressed I think you'll agree this guy is pretty good. If you happened to have a country trio and can't find a steel player, this guy could fill the bill I think.

Note that while he's playing with the pitch bend he's also fitting in the chord changes with his left hand. This PSR950 is in Yamaha's mid/high range of arrangers at under $2,000. The top of the line Tyros 4 is double that and is even more amazing than this one is in the hands of a good player.

Bob, that man can play! I’ve never heard a keyboard player sound so much like a pedal steel player as this cat can!

FWIW-If one doesn’t have the money for a Yamaha but has a full version of Kontakt WaveLore’s Pedal Steel sounds excellent also: http://www.wavelore.com/products.php?product=WLPS

It's funny as much as I really like jazz and funk I can't forget country either. Sometimes I really dig it and this is one of those times, it's just too cool for words. I've done a bit of keyboard steel work but not lately. He makes me want to go and work some stuff up.
