Been away from the forum for a while. Came back and found no really recent posts. OK, I know the reso isn't a guitar or even mandolin in popularity but really? Am I missing something?

I don't know about the rest of you, for me- All my guitar and mandolin playing friends made fun of me one too many times, so I've been hiding out and moping.

It hasn't been that long Mike, I checked out your home page and your last post was 27 days ago. 

Another wonderful rainy day here in what had been drought ravaged Northern California so I will go for a longish post. 

Hangout activity runs in streaks. There are many people who play dobro that have no idea this forum exists. I believe a lot of them are members of The Dobroholics page on Facebook which is pretty active. 

It reminds me of  the final couple of years of the no longer Reso-Nation forum.  People would come to the hangout and comment that there wasn't much activity on Reso-Nation. Brad Harper was the owner and at a certain point he pretty much lost interest. And there were  problems for new members trying to sign up. So it eventually went away. 

Some members here have gone to Dobroholics/FB because of the more frequent activity. It's great if you don't mind answering "which is the best capo?" or "how do I get used to these fingerpicks?"  for the 90th time. wink

As I have said about online forums over the years, especially in an esoteric category like the dobro guitar - you may not think your vote in a political election amounts to much, but contributing to a forum like this one rather than being a perennial "lurker" can make a big difference. 

Thanks for the idea - I should put on some Pink Floyd and learn to play along with "Comfortably Numb."

Unfortunately this site doesn’t have near the activity of banjo hangout. It guess that comes with it being a less popular instrument, as well as the reason Mark listed.

I used to check out Dobroholics but they made it a closed group and I can't bring myself to do Facebook.

The benefit of forums like this is you can search and find old posts pretty easily, and there's a lot of accumulated knowledge here if you know how to look for it.
