Watch the The D Major Scale online guitar lesson by Jimmy Heffernan from Dobro Handbook

D is another one of the nicest sounding keys on the dobro. Let's have look at the D major scale in the first position using our open strings.

The great lap steel player David Lindley makes great use of this type of scale in his work with Jackson Brown and on "Like a Rock" by Bob Seger. David uses a different tuning but the use of low major scale sounds with open strings is the key to his playing.
