Motion seconded- My old 30s Radiotone has one of those decals with all the notes and they've always been a major distraction with a capital D. (Except at the store when I tried it out and said "this is cool, I want this")

   Actually , that's a good one . Probably be more popular than my other sticker idea of " Kiss Me , I Play Dobro "

Good News : With your Banjo background . your right hand will adapt quickly . Lack of Armpit Guitar experience is no impediment .

Good News : You will be playing basic music on dobro much more quick than you ( anyone) could on Banjo or most other fret instrument .

Bad News : Playing at the Mike/ Jerry/ Rob level of skill , it like a rookie banjoist wanting to play like Earl or Bela . You will be making enjoyable music soon , just not at their level for a while .

For free 'tube lessons , Lessons with Troy , and DobroJoe . Opinions on books vary . But I will give endorsement also to Teach Yourself Dobro by Janet .

A local friend would help. There are so many questions on your adventure.

Get a cheap model and tinker with it incessantly. Your wife will eventually lose patience and say "Get The National/Scheerhorn...Already!!!" That worked for me. But be careful is your wife is also a musician. When you get an upgrade, she gets an upgrade. That happens with me.


Gordo wrote early in the thread that he had a $100 Antares on the way so the cheapo part is covered. I've never seen an Antares - but at 100 bucks you can't go any cheaper. 


There's one that's been posted on Maine's Craigslist for quite a while. Looks like a perfectly good intro-to-dobro axe.

Gordo's doing it right: getting something cheap to see how well he takes to it. Antares instruments don't hurt your eyes, so when he's ready to step up his game, all he'll really have to do is put in getter hardware. That should hold him for a few more years.

Good luck with it, Gordo, and welcome! let us know how it goes.

Thanks, but it has been slow going. I actually had an online lesson with Dobro Joe
But I couldn’t make it. Too darn busy with the job and the family.

Bad dobro attitude. We can only help if we hear: "Job and family have been slow going. Too darn busy learning dobro."

Get to it!
