Dobro Lessons

May Guitar Sessions is up

Hey there,

This month's resonator guitar column, "Traditional Dobro: Chord-based licks Part 2," is on the web at . Working from the basic licks explained and tabbed out in Lesson 1, you get some examples of how to build on these licks to make a more interesting melody going from chord to chord.

Also, there's an explanation of the Nashville Number System that covers what's meant when someone says "go to the 4-chord" or "play a minor 6" and how those names are derived from scale degrees.

Tab and soundclips are provided--hope you like it!
