Crippled hand dude here learning how to play lap steel (although hopefully I will have my crippled hand fixed soon). I've been learning some pink floyd songs on a lap steel but I'm looking for other songs to play. Are there any prog rock bands that use lap steel like Pink Floyd? Cheers in advance.

Lucky #13 here is a solid pine body from 4625 Second Ave, Detroit. A beautiful two tone tobacco nitro finish, Carl Bradychok pickups, and a Suedeskin Hand tooled leather pickguard.
4625 Second Ave was the old Forest Arms apartment building. It was built in 1905, destroyed by fire in 2008, and in 2016 reclaimed into this guitar.
Big thank you to the Woodward Guitar team!

Can anyone identify the unusual looking white bass that David is playing here?

Alright guys, I've been playing for about 6 years now, and at some point I became obsessed with blues guitar playing. That being said, I'm pretty knowledgeable about the blues and can improvise a mean blues solo.
Only problem is that's not what I want to play anymore. My style has recently shifted to a more alternative rock/ indie play style, but when I try to solo with the songs I write, they always end up sounding way too bluesy.
That being said, does anyone have any specific tips to help me branch out to other styles? If you can recommend specific scales/solos/videos to learn, that would be amazing.
I'm not trying to cut out blues playing entirely, but I am trying to become a more versatile guitarist, so any help is appreciated. Thanks!
I've been thinking of buying a bass guitar for a while now, and now that i have the money all saved up, i don't know what kind of bass to get!
I would be playing mostly various metal genres (from thrash to folk), prog rock and funk.
I've done my research, and am aware that fretless bass would take a lot time and effort to learn, than a fretted one.
Overall i am having trouble deciding. The fretless is very intriguing to me, with its unique sound and the skill it takes, and i am prepared to practise, practise and practise.
On the other hand, the fretted would let me just get right into it, and i could be sure that i could play those metal and rock songs without sounding really off. (Is there a huge difference?)
Edit: I'm not gonna play for a band, don't worry!
