Watch the Left Hand Exercise online guitar lesson by Jimmy Heffernan from Dobro Handbook

Now let's look at the right hand, which you'll find to be much more comfortable and familiar than the left hand where you hold a bar flat on the fretboard.

We'll talk about picks and how to shape them. Please note that you don't necessarily need to use picks if you prefer to just use your fingers as many players such as Duane Allman have done.

So, in this video lesson we'll cover everything you need to know about picks, right-hand positions, how to achieve the best tone, and how to orient your right hand with a 90 degree angle to the strings. Guitar players will get the swing of right-hand dobro techniques very quickly.
