I've been working with the great folks at Peghead Nation to create a new online Dobro Course. There are two Dobro courses on the site, one designed for beginners and one for intermediate/advanced players. New lessons get added every month along with instrument and product reviews. It's a pretty cool site. If you have requests for songs or topics you would like me to cover, please feel free to send me a message. We are shooting new videos every month.
Thanks for checking it out.
Mike was filming demos for his series of videos. This is what he had to work with, though not all wound up being filmed. Just a cellphone picture. It's amazing how much work goes into just getting the recording done, with multiple takes and the glam shots. And I can scarcely imagine what the editing and mixing task must be like. But it was a fun weekend at Jon Grier's house. My guitars except as noted below.
