About the Author:
Doug is a Canadian musician who has recorded and performed with a who's who of fellow Canadian and International musicians. He has toured in North America and Europe extensively as both a sideman and a frontman. A busy teacher, with his own instructional video series, Doug teaches guitar and Dobro at workshops across North America and has developed his own voice on his instruments. He appears on over 100 CDs as a sideman and has two solo recordings; "Canadian Borderline", and "Bone Bottle Brass or Steel", with a new release in the works! Doug hosts his own weekly TV music show in Canada called "Sittin' in with Doug Cox." His Dobro is heard daily across Canada playing the popular adaptation of CBC National Radios' "Discdrive" theme "Fanfarinette" .

Playing in Open Tunings with and without a slide will add many new dimensions to your musical path. I hope the areas we have explored in this book will open new doors in your playing and understanding of music and the guitar. I would also like to emphasize my belief that everything I teach in this book simply reflects the way I approach the guitar and should not be taken as the right or wrong way to do things. I believe that aside from doing anything that causes you physical damage, there is no right or wrong way to play music. Do what you like and what works for you. I also encourage any music student to study with as many teachers as possible and learn what you can from every musical encounter you have. Thank you for studying with me and I hope to see you down the road! Doug Cox
