In this lesson, i give you an introduction to C6 tuning for lap steel. You don’t need to learn a lot of things to get you started, just start off with the basics: tuning up your instrument, understanding the harmonic layout of this tuning then the major and minor chords.
Once you’re done with that, you can check out some of my song tutorials!
You can get the accompanying files for free below (please consider supporting the site by buying a lesson or making a donation if you only use the free lessons 😉 )
I have also included links to useful accessories (strings, picks and bars…) as a reference (not exhaustive of course).

I personally prefer the classic dobro bar:
Propik fingerpicks are also really good ones !
