Has anyone else checked out Rob Ickes new site for learning Dobro. looks interesting http://www.bigmusictent.com
Yea, Doug, I just finished my two week trial, and I am going to subscribe now. I knew Rob to be an excellent teacher from my visits to Resosummit, and his site has some great instruction. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am lost just reading tab without someone demonstrating and/or explaining what they’re doing. His explanations, and often accompanied by the reasons why he does something, or why he chose those notes, are great. He gets right to the point and assumes you have some knowledge. Not for beginners so much, but you’re hardly in that category.
I recently purchased the 3-month deal and am happy with Rob's instruction except he seems to think I understand the entire fretboard and talks about different notes which I know nothing about. Overall, it's sure worth the money.
Fred, there are a few different versions out there of fretboard charts which will help you memorize where the notes are.
I like the one from Mike Witcher. I have both the G tuning and D tuning versions hanging on the wall in my office/music room.
There are some good musicians who play completely by ear and aren't familiar with the names and locations of notes, along with music theory - but to me it would be like getting into a boxing ring with one hand tied behind my back.
