Pete Drake & His Talking Steel Guitar

petedrake

Known as the man who invented the talking steel guitar, Pete Drake or the "King of the Talking Steel Guitar" is seen here performing "Forever" his hit record in the movie "Second Fiddle to a Steel Guitar" in 1966. I had no idea that this sound went back to 1966 with Pete Drake. Imagine hearing the sounds he made from his talking steel guitar for the first time. Nowadays you would take that sound for granted but back then it would have been something else.
