Great Beginning Dobro Video.
Charles Kahler | Alameda, CA United States | 06/12/2005

"This lesson is a great guide to all the basics you will need to learn to play the dobro. Begins with tuning (G-B-D-G-B-D) and some basic G scales; with advice on holding the bar properly and what type of finger picks to use. There are strums, slides, rhythmic chops, and a few riffs, as well as hammer-ons and pull-offs. The songs (Wildwood Flower, Sailor's Hornpipe, Fireball Mail, and Wayfaring Stranger) showcase all the techniques you will learn. Video lessons don't get any better than this."
Great for Beginners

"I purchased my Dobro and this CD at the same time. I couldn't find a teacher, so I decided to try video training. For the cost of two lessons, this video covers more material than a private teacher could cover in those lessons. The camera work is simple but you can definitely see the work of both hands. You can jam with the band on each song. I went through the material fairly quickly. I'm going to buy her other Dobro video."
Great help - thanks Cindy Cashdollar

"This DVD is really a great place to start if you want to learn the dobro. Cindy Cashdollar is an excellent teacher and wonderful player. The songs are familiar and cover a decent range of styles. She demonstrates the material well and the camera work is good, showing both hands. The sections on holding the instrument and bar are really good. She knows we are starting from scratch. If you learn like I do, by watching and hearing rather than reading, you will get a lot from this DVD. The sound is not the greatest when the band is playing along, but this was in the early days of Homespun and the newer releases are much better in that respect. Overall this is a really solid learning tool that is very helpful. Hearing what Cindy can do with simple material by getting into the sound and tone of the dobro is inspirational. Highly reccommended."
