Master Guitar teacher and Hot Licks founder Arlen Roth gets you started on this classic and unique instrument. Arlen explains the differences between dobro and "upright" slide Guitar, and shows you the basics of Open D and High Bass G tuning, slide control, finger-picking, and intonation.
Basic skills (hammer-ons and pull-offs, open-string licks, double stops, and vibrato) and advanced techniques (bending behind the slide, tilting the slide, harmonics, and blues harp and Chicago blues sounds) are demonstrated in real time and slow-motion standard pitch, with right- and left-hand close-ups for easy learning.
Learn blues, country, and Eastern scales and licks, as well as the classic "Hawaiian" sound.
Includes 40-page booklet in standard notation and tablature.
