Are there any Dobro players in the crowd?? I'm looking for an instructor in western Kentucky.
Well, I thought someone at least would ask me WTF a dobro was.
O.k., WTF's a dobro?
I duuno but if it has anything to do with chicken pickin badass "Sweet home Alabama" type music ,( witch i learned the entire song on the Geetar the other day, i just jack up the solos real bad) im game,because sothern chicken pickin country git down music is alright with me. Ill shoot, what is it???
An old instrument becoming popular again. Love the way they sound. They were designed to compete with the electric guitars.
..I'd give ol' Curt my money, he'd play all day for me...
My brother has one. They're sweet.
I love the Dobro too...
You just don't hear that much Dobro guitar in todays "new" country music..
I love the sound of them..many of Randy Travis's older songs had the Dobro featured in them..
A lot of the female artists I like had them in their bands too,like Holly Dunn,Rhonda Vincent,and Alison Krauss..I've drifted over into Bluegrass from "country",because it sounds more like the "classic" country I like best..SOME of the newer country is ok,but I'm not very fond of a lot of it..
If I were to play a guitar,the Dobro is the one I'd love to play the most..Rhonda Vincent has said she'd like to add one to her band..I'd die for that gig!..
I prefer to use the term 'Resophonic' when referring to them because the name 'Dobro' is actually trademarked by Gibson. Still love the sound of them too.
I'd eat a mile of peanuts to smell Allison's butt.
