NeffTunes MixTape October 2008

Is there anything sweeter than the cry of a pedal steel as it slowly weaves its way through the threads of a sad song? Man, i loves me some of that lonesome, melancholy sound especially when it pops up in unexpected places. Many of my favorite artists have employed steel guitar accents on some of their best songs to add a bittersweet flavor traditionally used by bands with a more countrified bent, and here are my favorite examples.
Kick back and enjoy, my dear readers.
