Event description
Intermediate Dobro

About this Event

The intermediate dobro class will pick up where the beginning dobro class left off, and we will make our rounds through all the techniques of an eclectic style of playing (not just bluegrass!). Covered advanced techniques will include hammer-ons, pull-offs, rolls, the backbeat 'chuck', harmonics, slants, etc. We'll start putting it all together and we'll start to focus in on jamming in groups. There will be homework! With this class, one will be well down the road of becoming a viable dobro player/performer.

**Purchasing a dobro is not necessary for the class. A beat-up old steel string guitar will work with use of a "riser" or "extension nut" made by Golden Gate. Here are two websites which carry them:
