    Jude & Lawrence Moylan
  • Amazing service & so happy with our new gates! We needed some gates made at the last minute for the arrival of a puppy & James went out of his way to have these measured & made in time! Thanks James & Emma we will be back! Highly recommend.

    Melissa McCallum
  • Could not recommend James highly enough. I had over four different companies come to my property and everyone told me that what I wanted couldn't be done. James came and provided a great solution and the project was completed very very fast and efficiently.


    I found James's communication very quick and the total price for the gate install was the sharpest I had received. I would not hesitate to recommend designer gates, fantastic service and great quality product. Thanks.

    Courtney Keast

Frequently Asked Questions


See below for the answers to some of our most common questions, if you have any other questions, please contact us.



Neo-Traditional Country is a collection of classic Nashville Country Pedal Steel licks that helped define the 80's and 90's. Bruce Bouton guides you through several of his most recognized licks and solos, sharing his stories and insights on the recording scene at the time. Questions? We can be reached at:


Neo-Traditional Country is a streaming video course hosted by Modern Music Masters.
Unlike a private lesson, you can review the materials by watching the videos over and over, use the video player to slow things down, and print out lesson materials. The course is composed of video content, downloadable pdfs, and Practice Tracks. The course videos are available to stream online 24/7, and can be paused, fast-forwarded, or slowed down.


The course is one single payment of $59 - about the cost of a single Skype or Zoom lesson. For that you get 24/7 access to the lessons and materials, with no enrollment expiration.


The Course can be viewed on desktop computers and most mobile devices – phones, tablets, laptops – as long as they have a compatible browser on them and they are connected to the internet. You will need to keep your OS and browser current as how browsers display items changes over time. For example, in the Mac world, you will need iOS 11.x or higher.


Bruce uses a standard E9 setup.
