New Website

I'd also like to invite everyone to drop by my new website. It's got the same address...


But I signed up with HostBaby and, using their well designed tools and phone support, made a new site myself. Technology has caught up with my ignorance and I am now able to do this without being a codegeek. It's been fun, I have more music and video on the site, a section just for dobro related stuff and dobro music, and just more interesting stuff to poke thru. check it out when you have a minute and if you have any suggestions to make things better or find something that doesn't work right, leave a message on my guestbook page or shoot me an email thru my contact page.

Summer Dobro Workshops

If you're thinking about a summer workshop with some dobro content I've got a couple to recommend.

I will be at Week 3 (Aug 11-17) of the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop along with Sally Van Meter and Stacy Phillips. Enough dobro for you? Sally will teach 2 classes, Stacy will teach 1 class, and I will be doing some workshop periods. (Stacy and I are teaching other classes besides dobro, too). It's a great workshop in a beautiful setting.   http://www.psgw.org/

I'm also teaching at Centrum's blues week July 29-Aug 5  http://www.centrum.org/blues/   I'll be offering a lap style slide class and a bottleneck class. The dobro class will explore some D tuning as well as G tuning and focus in a bluesy direction.
