Who are your favorite pedal or non-pedal steel players of all time. I'll start off with Don Helms-Hank Williams, Sr.-non-pedal. Jimmy Day and Buddy Emmons, who were both pedal steel players for Ray Price, and a host of others.

Pig Robbins played piano. His first gig was a George Jones session, where they tried to record 'White Lightning'. George was drunk, as usual, and it took 64 takes to get the song recorded. About 1960.
Buddy Charleton was great. Played for Ernest Tubb after Buddy Emmons left in 1962. Buddy and Leon Rhodes played some great stuff together for Ernest. Buddy retired back to Virginia, to help his Dad, who was a brick layer. Gave lessons for years.

Those early Eddy Arnold songs from mid to late 40's had that unmistakable sound of Little Roy Wiggins along with George Morgan when Roy Wiggins played steel for him! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzuk_xGUJb0 Also no doubt that Leon Mcauliff had sooooooooooooo big a part in the Bob Will's Western Swing sound!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KRLUZBs7aU

Great choices. I'll name some more for you. Johnny Seibert- Carl Smith, Hal Rugg- George Jones and then Loretta Lynn, Weldon Myrick-Connie Smith, Kitty Wells-Shot Jackson, Russ Hicks, Ben Keith- Patsy Cline, Lloyd Green-Tammy Wynette, Johnny Paycheck etc. He had perfect pitch. Doug Jarnigan-Faron Young. Just to name a few.
