Hi all,

I just got a dobro-type square neck resonator a few weeks ago and have been in the old woodshed with it. I've been playing guitar for about 30 years and play a fair amount of slide in standard tuning but the dobro's open tuning, bar, and finger picks are a bit of an adjustment, to say the least. I did a search on the site and see a few mentions of dobro playing and players. Things are coming along and I'm enjoying trying to crack the puzzles of this instrument and incorporating it into the sound of my acoustic group. I'm just curious about what books or web-based material players on rukind may have used to get them going in the right direction on the instrument. Thanks for any recommendations! ... 4250859059
