How to Play Slide Guitar Dobro How to Play Hawaiian Music on Slide Guitar
On behalf of Expert Village, I'm Reno McCormickand I'm here to tell you about playing the Dobro today. When the Dobro was invented,the Hawaiians fell in love with the instrument. They love steel guitar also but they havean affinity for the Dobro. They just love how it flows and like their language flows,I don't know how speak Hawaiian, but, I like to hear it, and they like to hear Dobro music,and they like to go like this. We're in the key of C, same licks as we use in bluegrass.Slant. Back to C. We could do that another way, which isn't as flowing when we have toslide our barre between five frets. It's easier and sounds nicer to just bend your barre.That was really an F chord, which this is
an F chord. We can play two notes of an Fchord right here. The seventh fret, the sixth fret. And we can slide it to the fifth fretwhich gets us back to C. When you're practicing, practice going from the C to the twonoteF chord. Slide it up two frets and it's a G chord. Now I make a C with the first and third strings,at the tenth and ninth fret. And that ends the song or we can do our harmonic. We useall the tools that we have just gone over, to learn to play and add interest, insteadof just playing the same standard licks.
