    is playing a lap steel hard or it's just like a guitar but using a slide?

    It's similar but not quite the same--it is on your lap--or on another surface--and so the shape of the neck doesn't enter into it.
    ANd, at least for me, the muting works a little differently--as well as the slide is held differently.
    But maybe someone who actually knows what they're doing with it should answer.

    But that's my take on it.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.
