Look who came to chat about steel guitars! 

Yes, Matt Allwright drove over to my place and brought with him his beautiful Bennett S8 lap steel with a Duesenberg Multibender - fitted by Mick Johnson (http://mickjohnsonguitars.com/).

Matt is a steel guitar fanatic and has acquired a huge amount of knowledge and playing ability in a relatively short time!  You need to check out one of his webpages, namely: https://steelgrimage.com/blog/

In his research, he found Luke Cyrus Goetze, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLOOmtvC9Hc / https://www.facebook.com/luke.cyrus.goetze
Some very musical playing.  Shame about the lack of finger-picks  (I don't know if I'm joking, or not! - it sounds so good!) 
Luke is from the US, but currently living in Munich, Germany.  He's very good, in my view.
