My old steel guitar teacher, Al Petty, passed away recently. His close friend and pastor, Jerry Phelps of Tyler, TX Metro Church, is hosting a Celebration of Life service for him Saturday, July 29th at 3pm.
Al Petty was a blessing to me through his teaching in my early years. He was a musical genius with an exuberant personality. Throughout his entire life he was constantly innovating new ways to play and design the instrument.
He will be sadly and sorely missed.
