Playing the dobro is easier if you have spent some time with a guitar. This course is designed for the guitar player who would like to transition to playing the dobro.
This course shows you how to convert your guitar into a functional dobro using a ‘nut converter’ and a ‘slide bar’ which will cost you less than $40 instead of shelling out a few hundred dollars for a new dobro.
This course will teach you how to hold the bar in the left hand and overcome the unfamiliar feeling. You will also learn how to tune the dobro in G since it is the tuning that you will be playing most of the time. you will also polish up your fretboard visualization for common keys; A, C, D, E, F, and G.
Jimmy also reveals some tricks and tips that make pro dobro players. you will learn to use relative major for minor lines, blocking, triple stops, vibrato, working pockets, pedal steel simulation, thumb syncopation, pull-offs, and many other tricks to improve your techniques.
Jimmy Heffernan has been playing the dobro for many years and is also an accomplished producer, sideman and a popular figure in the Nashville session. You can find this course on Truefire;
