Square Neck Dobro lessons

Welcome to my online Square Neck Dobro lessons. I’m excited that you're considering taking lessons with me, and I want to ensure you have all the necessary information to make an informed decision.


Here are some important things you should know:

Lesson Format: All lessons are tailored to your individual learning goals and conducted through one-on-one online sessions. While we can use any platform you prefer, I recommend VmixCall , a web-based platform that delivers high-quality audio and video, its free and all you need is a Web Browser.

Lesson Duration: Each lesson lasts for 1 hour.

Lesson Content: I provide a comprehensive curriculum covering all aspects of playing the Square Neck Guitars, including tuning (I suggest starting with open G, Low to High GBDGBD), fretboard comprehension, right and left-hand techniques, music theory, and understanding music. Lessons are customized to your specific interests and objectives.

Instrument: Students must have a suitable guitar for the music they want to learn. For those who don't yet want to purchase a square neck instrument,  I suggest purchasing a slide guitar extension nut that can be used on a standard steel string acoustic guitar, a tone bar such as the Shubb SP1, some finger picks, and a thumb pick.

If you have any questions or concerns about taking Square Neck Guitar lessons with me, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm excited to help you achieve your musical goals!


Some information about the lessons.


What you will need.

Ensure a great lesson experience with these tips:

Have a video and audio enabled device with a strong internet connection.

Optional: Use headphones and a music stand.

No square neck guitar yet? Adapt a standard steel string guitar with a slide guitar extension nut, tone bar, finger picks, and a thumb pick.

For electric lap steel guitars, use an amplifier or an audio interface to connect your guitar directly to your computer.

During the lesson, position yourself so we can see both your hands and the entire fingerboard of your guitar.

A wider view helps with body posture and instrument positioning.

Let's create beautiful music together!
