Here is a hands-on Dobro course that will teach you to play your favorite bluegrass and country tunes in no time- even if you've never played before! Jam-packed with information, this 90-minute lesson utilizes close-ups, split screens and easy-to-follow instruction to make it easy for you to learn.
Cindy Cashdollar, one of the shining stars of the Dobro and lap steel world, helps you develop accuracy and good intonation, and increases your depth of musical knowledge. She details essential techniques such as right hand rolls, rhythm picking, crosspicking, tone control, hammer-ons and pull-offs, damping, chord building, and how the scales and chords fit together to form major and minor melodies. Cindy even discusses Dobro construction and maintenance to give you a full understanding of your instrument.
To help you put all this information together, Cindy teaches four all-time favorite country tunes, each one illustrating a different technique, key or style to prepare you for further Dobro adventures.
Songs: Wildwood Flower, Fireball Mail, Sailor's Hornpipe, Wayfaring Stranger.
