I am writing this blog to help students of Dobro™ become better students. It does not teach you how to play the Dobro; you should get that from instructors or from their books and CDs. Use this blog as a companion piece to your other instruction.
The posts cover two main areas of discussion:
- How to practice effectively
- How to apply music theory to the Dobro
The second topic, music theory, lays a road map of the musical landscape that will let you do the following:
- Figure out where you are
- Relate where you are to other landmarks in the landscape
- Make better decisions about where to go next
And of course, feel free to add comments and enrich the conversation.
As I add posts organically, I am maintaining a contents post that organizes the posts logically by topic.
CreditsI am deeply indebted to the following people who have instructed me and made my journey richer and more enjoyable than if I had been on my own:
