East Texas Steel Guitar Assn. Purpose and Direction
The first and foremost purpose of the Association is to further advance
the Pedal Steel Guitar, recognizing the need to further advance many
other fine instruments at the same time. Without the support of other
instruments, the Pedal Steel Guitar would not be the recognized instrument
that it is today. It has the uniqueness of being recognized as the
hardest instrument to master. There are very few that do master the
instrument. It takes a certain talent and commitment few have to play
the instrument with the finesse and feeling required. It takes not only
determination but a special touch and feel that comes to very few.
Along with saying that, the members of the “East Texas” Steel Guitar
Association strive to form a closeness among the members that keeps us
involved with each other sometimes on a daily basis. Musicians are a family
of friends that have come very far along the way and held onto friendships
like so many other organizations fail to do. Friendships among musicians
sometimes last a lifetime, though separated by miles and miles in later years.
Creating an organization such as “East Texas” does not come easy. It takes
the committed efforts of many to get such a job done right. Our goal at
ETSGA is to develop such an organization that others will appreciate
being a part of. Our Rules and Guidelines are an attempt to establish such
an organization. With your help and support, we feel that we will be successful.
If this is something that you would like to be a part of, then come
and be part of what we are doing and what we are building.
We welcome you.
We invite you to visit us in person or at our web site.
