Hello and welcome to Dobro For Guitar Players!
Many guitar players love the sound of the dobro and would love to learn how to play but most of the beginner dobro instruction out there is a bit too basic and frustrating to work with if you already understand the basic principles of playing a guitar.
This course is specifically designed for guitar players to get up and running quickly as many aspects of dobro playing are similar to playing guitar.
I'm going to cover right and left-hand techniques and positions that will get you playing the dobro the correct way right from the start.
We'll start with the left hand, move to the right hand and then jump right in to playing scales and licks.
There's tons of relatively easy fun positions that yield great dobro sounds as well as some others that require more effort. Your guitar knowledge will be helpful in most cases but there will be a few new techniques that I will work with you on.
Let's dig in!
