Stacy Phillips provides expert instruction on how to play the Dobro -- a resonator guitar that is played lap-style. Phillips' experience includes playing bluegrass music with Phil and Beth Rosenthal, honky tonk swing with the Honeydews, and with Paul Howard as a duet. Soloing and improvisational skills are emphasized on this video, with special attention paid to right-hand rolls, hammer-ons, use of the bar, and choosing the right pick and chord positions. Phillips also shows students how to create melodies and to play such songs as "Little Rosewood Casket," "Trouble in Mind," "Nine-Pound Hammer," and "Foggy Mountain Rock." ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
