Bob Brozman - Bottleneck Blues Guitar, Vol. 1

Great video by Bob. After watching this I've filed my own bottleneck out of a wine bottle and tuned one of my guitars to open G forever. Probably you'll find PDF file with instruction pretty useful as well

Bob Brozman, who plays duets on National steel with Kaapana, comes
to Hawaiian music via the blues and other traditional mainland folk
forms. His work has a busyness, in the best possible sense of the term - "the guy's all over the place", though he can also lay back and keep it simple when he wants to; he also has a prickliness that many island steel players don't show. He brings out the best in Kaapana, who plays with a fuller, more virile tone than usual. They reach
further back than most of their peers for material and arrangements,
too, so this set has the straightforward, benignly sentimental feel
of the earliest recorded Hawaiian music. --John Morthland

Ledward Kaapana & Bob Brozman in Concert

Two masters of Hawaiian lap steel and slack guitar together, one of my favourite live shows, very positive.

Welcome to Harem!

Another great music number from old Soviet movie - "Белый Рояль" (White Piano) made in Tadzhikistan. Composer again Alexander Zatsepin. Garage/psychobilly experts probably will agree that The Monsters' Sex Wax from their album The Hunch (1992) is almost the same tune.
