Cindy Cashdollar – Learning Bluegrass Dobro
Here is a hands-on Dobro course that will teach you to play your favorite bluegrass and country tunes in no time – even if you’ve never played before! Jam-packed with information, this 90-minute DVD utilizes close-ups, split screens and easy-to-follow instruction to make it easy for you to learn.
Cindy Cashdollar, one of the shining stars of the Dobro and lap steel world, helps you develop accuracy and good intonation, and increases your depth of musical knowledge. She details essential techniques such as right hand rolls, rhythm picking, crosspicking, tone control, hammer-ons and pull-offs, damping, chord building, and how the scales and chords fit together to form major and minor melodies. Cindy even discusses Dobro construction and maintenance to give you a full understanding of your instrument.
To help you put all this information together, Cindy teaches four all-time favorite country tunes, each one illustrating a different technique, key or style to prepare you for further Dobro adventures.
Songs: “Wildwood Flower,” “Fireball Mail,” “Sailor’s Hornpipe,” “Wayfaring Stranger.”
“These lessons are set up so that anyone studying at home can play a couple of choruses on their own. (Cindy) does a fine job, and Homespun should seriouslyconsider not only having her do an advanced Dobro video, but also a much-needed course in the Western swing lap steel she plays with Asleep At The Wheel.”

“I recently bought a Dobro from First Quality and also the Cindy Cashdollar video “Learning Bluegrass Dobro” to go with it. That tape actually stunned me with its presentation, it’s unbelievably good.”

“I just wanted to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed Cindy’s Dobro series. I’ve still got a lot to work on but I just feel that she has given me a light years head start. Her approach and patience just felt so personal. I took up the Dobro not knowing a thing and without her help I’d still be wondering why that thing had a big hubcap on it.”
