: Jerry Douglas' Dobro Techniques

Take a lesson from the man the New York Times has called "Dobro's matchless contemporary master." In this tutorial, Jerry Douglas shares the powerful techniques and unique sounds that have characterized his award-winning playing and have made him a legend among acoustic musicians.

Jerry starts by getting you tuned up and acquainted with the Dobro essentials - proper left and right hand positions, bar pull-offs and hammer-ons and a variety of right hand picking patterns. As the lesson develops, you'll learn to master important techniques such as forward and reverse bar slants, "banjo" rolls, string pulls and how to combine rolls in complex picking sequences.

All of the techniques are brought together in detailed, note-by-note breakdowns of three great tunes: Fireball Mail, Cincinnati Rag and Banks of the Ohio. Jerry's clear and concise teaching style, along with invaluable tips on musicianship and equipment, will help you become a better player. By developing bar control, fingerpicking skills, licks and song arrangements, you'll gain insights and abilities that will bring your Dobro playing to new heights.

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
