The Hawaiin Steel Guitar

The Hawaiin guitar or Steel guitar isn’t just a type of guitar but also refers to the method of playing the instrument. Developed in Hawaii in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a steel guitar is usually positioned horizontally on the lap or on a stand. The strings are plucked with one hand, while the other hand changes the pitch of one or more strings with the use of a bar or slide called a Steel (generally made of metal, but also of glass or other materials).
