Watch the Blocking and Pull-offs online guitar lesson by Jimmy Heffernan from Dobro Handbook

This lick combines much of what we've covered with a new twist, the pull off, which is a very important tool.

We only have one finger (the bar) to fret notes with as opposed to the four we have in guitar playing and so the use of open strings, pull-offs, hammer-ons and slides help make up the difference.

And they all sound great on dobro!
