This is a set of styles based upon the interaction between Pedal Steel Guitar and Lead Electric Guitar playing over bluegrass acoustic,12 strings or alternate tuned acoustics to power chord electric rhythm guitars.

In the style of examples:

POCO:
Better Think Twice = good example
Heart of the Night

PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE
Country Song = really good example
Tears = really good example

RICK NELSON & STONE CANYON BAND
She belongs to me = good example of acoustic ballad


This particular style started in the late 1960's and had a enormous influence on pop music throughout the early 1970's. The pedal steel mantra was carried by a fairly small group of musicians including PG session artist, Paul Franklin.

This early style created a ground swell of crossover hits in pop music. Some well known pop hits with prominent pedal steel.

Lay Lady Lay - Bob Dylan (Pete Drake) #7 in 1969

Teach Your Children - CSNY (Jerry Garcia) #16 in 1970

Never Been To Spain - Three Dog Night (Rusty Young)

It's So Nice To Be With You - Gallery (Paul Franklin) #4 in 1972

Rainy Day People - Gordon Lightfoot (Pee Wee Charles) 1975

Tiny Dancer - Elton John

Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton (Jaydee Maness)

On and On - Stephen Bishop

Blue Bayou - Linda Rondstadt

Danny's Song - Ann Murray

Heart of Gold - Neil Young

Best of my Love - Eagles (Bernie Leadon)

Wild Night - Van Morrison (John McFee)

Top of the World - Carpenters (Red Rhodes & Buddy Emmons)

Sally G - Paul McCartney (Pete Drake)

There were many other popular pop artists that used PSG on album cuts and minor single releases.

Here's a list of some:
Joan Baez, Gladys Knight, Loggins and Messina, Rita Coolidge, America, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Steven Curtis Chapman, Mustangs of the West, Restless Heart, American Flyer, Juice Newton, James Gang.

Most of the foundation can already be found in existing styles and RealTracks.

The recommendation to PG staff is having specific lead guitar and psg instruments recording RealTracks over the same RT Template audio tandemly and alternately creating a two instrument ensemble where the RealTracks can be included in a RealStyle or be assigned consecutive RT#'s (ie: RT-3456 & RT3457) and they can be independently added when a user is building a custom style.

Pure Prairie Leagues Country Song and Tears are excellent examples and Rick Nelson and Poco songs are good examples how the two instruments can be used independently of each other in various styles.
