Default Lap steel

I just bought a cheap,chinese made lap steel.I have played slide guitar, mostly electric for many years and had a National Reso rocket I sold recently because of neck. shoulder injuries I just couldnt paly it for more than 10 minutes at a time.I have never played "upside down" or lap guitar, so I didnt want to invest in anything too pricey til I give it a go for a while.I am looking for sources for tabs on line and dont see a lot.Any body have any links to tab sites with lap steel tabs?Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't what tuning you're planning to use, but you might find Cindy Cashdollar's Homespun videos useful: https://www.homespun.com/instructors/cindy-cashdollar/

https://www.resohangout.com/tab/

This site is not too active these days, but there are a fair number of Dobro tabs if you use open G tuning (GBDGBD)

Should have stated it in the OP.I will be going with C6 tunings, gearing towards western swing type stuff.I've been using open G and D with both the Reso rocket and regular guitars for many years.Cant find much in the C6 tunings.

Join the Steel Forum (I think it costs $5 for life). It is very busy over there and there are tabs constantly being posted or links to tabs to purchase. I am a member over there.
