Hey Gang!

I'm sure this has been discussed but I haven't found it... Does anyone happen to know the order of players of Fireball Mail from The Great Dobro Sessions record? It's really fun to hear everyone play back to back. I'm particularly curious about who is playing the solo third from last, starting at 1:50. The beginning of that solo really stands out which I think is quite cool in this context.

OK sorry for being impatient, but I actually just found a great video by Rob Ickes where he breaks down all the solos and it’s Stacy Phillips that plays the break I was wondering about. Going to explore more of his playing now…

The tab book has the player's name listed at the beginning of his/her section.

When I bought the tab book for The Great Dobro Sessions, Stacy's version of The Last Rose of Autumn was one of the songs I wanted to learn. When I looked at the tab and saw all the slants and chokes Stacy used, I soon realized that song was way above my ability. Such a beautiful song. Stacy had a style all his own.

Hi maxmax. Were you following the discussion at Rob's Reso Room? I'm assuming that's where you saw the Rob video. That was a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed having Rob have us give our guesses before he did the big reveal. (Of course, I guess the info was available elsewhere, but I didn't have that.)
I, too, was most intrigued by Stacy's break. I ended up buying both of Stacy's books because of that discussion.

Stacy was a very imaginative player, way outside the box. I regretted spending a week at Haystack studying with a pompous banjo player when I could have been basking in his technicolor glow. There's a lifetime worth of cool stuff to steal out of "The Complete Dobro Player."

Yes the video I found was from Rob's Reso Room. I'm not a member, but google brought me there. Great stuff!

I'll have to look into Stacy's books. Thank for mentioning them!
