Learn Some Great Dobro Tunes

"Cindy Cashdollar is a marvelous teacher and all the tunes in this Dobro lesson are fun and interesting. "Panhandle Rag" is in G6 tuning (DBDEBG), and is the number she played at the closing of her
"Beginning Dobro" video. "Faded Love" and "Minor Swing" are both in G tuning (DBGDBG), as is the segment on minor key progressions. The remaining number, "Rockabilly Blues", is in E tuning (EBEG#BE). [This E tuning is mistakenly written backwards in the TAB booklet].
All pieces are performed and then played slowly. The teaching is clear and the emphasis is on playing in minor keys. All of these pieces are performance-worthy. Anyone interested in learning Dobro should get this lesson."
