QUESTION OF THE WEEK- What is a pedal steel guitar?

J.J. Terzigni:"It's made from metal instead of wood, and it makes a different sound. It's used in music from Appalachia– around here and in West Virginia and Ohio."

Cory Fraiman-Lott:"It's like a guitar on its side. I might have heard it on TV."

Tania Boyer:"I would say that maybe it has something to do with a pedal and something made out of steel. It's probably used in Hawaiian-style music."
