Here is a quick reference to the system of notation I use for transcribing music for the steel guitar: STEEL GUITAR NOTATION LEGEND
If you need help reading sheet music in general, check these pages out: CLASSICAL NOTATION
If you don't have a particular pedal or lever that I have on my instrument, you can use the BAR COPEDENT I have designed. This diagram will show you which fret to move your bar to in order to play the same note.
If you have sheet music you would like transcribed for the steel guitar, send me an email at
I would be happy to help out if I can.
If you would like regular updates when I post new Sheet Music, like SteelGuitarAcademy on Facebook:
