These lessons in resonator guitar will have you picking better than you ever dreamed you could and will teach you to play eight fabulous tunes. You'll master all the essential playing techniques you'll need to really start to jam. Stacy's friendly, easy-to-follow instructions will add spice to your entire repertoire and prepare you to develop your own style.

DVD 1: Learn to play a variety of fabulous tunes as you master essential playing techniques! Stacy Phillips provides detailed instruction on the use of picks, the bar, hammer-ons, pull-offs, right-hand rolls and a variety of chord positions. His in-depth examination of major scale patterns, applicable to almost any song, allows you to create your own melodies, licks, improvisations and solos. Stacy shows you how, starting with the old-time classic Little Rosewood Casket.

The traditional blues Trouble in Mind gets you into blues notes, licks and scales. Stacy shows you how these blues techniques apply to many bluegrass tunes, including Buck Graves' Foggy Mountain Rock.

Nine Pound Hammer, taught in G, A and Bb, illustrates how various keys inspire different licks. Here Stacy features a series of dynamic solos, complete with a multitude of playing ideas. Dixie Hoedown, a real showpiece, integrates all you've learned so far with contemporary break-down style licks.

DVD 2: Move into more advanced territory as Stacy Phillips continues his exploration of several important Dobro essentials. He helps you build up your repertoire of rolls, drones, scale patterns, hammer-ons and pull-offs, but now the emphasis is on bar slants and string pulls. These powerful techniques give you the ability to play more complex chords and allow you to create distinctive effects, including beautiful and compelling pedal steel-like licks.

You'll learn four tunes in detail. These include Cherokee Shuffle and Bill Cheatham, which emphasize the skills you need to arrange fiddle tunes for Dobro. The great Bill Monroe tune Kentucky Waltz focuses on working forward and reverse slants into your solos, and offers new ideas for using them in the rest of your repertoire. Stacy's original composition, Last Rose of Autumn (featured on “The Great Dobro Sessions”), covers everything you've learned in a heart-felt and complex instrumental.

Stacy's presentations extend beyond the tune being taught. You'll amass a full arsenal of techniques to create your own solos, improvisations and variations. Download now from PlayBetterBluegrass.com!
