Slider – Ambient Pedal Steel Excursion from Bruce Kaphan

Slider (2001, 57 min)
Ambient Excursions for Pedal Steel Guitar
Bruce Kaphan


Slider is an atmospheric/ambient pedal steel guitar exploration of new possibilities for a never-fully-exploited instrument. The album achieves something rare in popular music – it puts a new face on pedal steel, and is a creative synthesis of ambient, pop, country, Indian, electronic music.

Bruce Kaphan - Playing

Slider is the premiere solo effort from Bay Area pedal steel guitarist Bruce Kaphan – his presentation is a welcome rethinking of the pedal steel, with its silvery, liquid tone refracted through his harmonic vocabulary, skillful arrangements, and wide-ranging stylistic compass.

Kaphan pioneered new territory for the pedal steel in the 90’s as a member of alt-rock cult favorites American Music Club, where he quickly liberated the instrument from its Nashville stereotype.
