It's 12:00 midnight as Saturday shades into Sunday in an apartment in the South Bronx in New York City, across the street from Yankee Stadium. If I sit in a particular position on the floor and hold my pocket transistor radio just so,
I can hear the final strains of the WWV A; Wheeling, West Virginia "World's Original" Jamboree. Then it's on to "Live from Campbell's General Store in Oxford, Pennsylvania!" for an hour of musical heaven with Alex, ala Belle and the New River Gang. Amid pitches for ten-pound sacks of pinto beans, navy beans, snap beans, kidney beans, and other of life's necessities there is raw, unadulterated, old-time bluegrass featuring Sonny Miller on fiddle, Ted Lundy on banjo and occasional wailing solos and backup by Deacon Brumfield on resonator guitar. Whenever Deacon steps up to the microphone ala Belle Reed lets go with a whoop of glee. Outside the Flatt and Scruggs Foggy Mountain jamboree album that has a few cuts with Buck Graves, this is my resonator guitar input. I still have no idea of what it looks like or how it is played but the instrument has captured my imagination.
A few years later I am playing resonator guitar at a workshop at the Smithsonian Folk Festival in Washington, D.C. In the middle of "Wabash Cannonball" there is a pounding on the side of the wooden stage, followed in close order by a familiar wail. On the way from her own performance, ala Belle hears my imitation of the Deacon and cannot resist.
Such is the stuff of musical fantasy realized.
In the mid-1970s I wrote The Dobro® Book, that has become the standard teaching text for
resonator slide guitar. Complete Dobro® Player is designed to be a continuation of and supplement to that
effort. Acoustic steel guitar is currently experiencing something of a popularity boom, so it seems an
opportune moment to share some of the things I have learned about this instrument over the past 20
years. This book is aimed at six-string steel guitarists, and both acoustic and electric players should be
able to learn a great deal. However, it is slanted towards acoustic resonator guitars as exemplified by
DOBRO® brand resonator guitars. DOBRO® is a registered trademark owned by the Original Musical
Instrument Co. division of Gibson Guitar Corp. Because of their obsessive proprietary interest in this
copyright, I will be substituting various euphemisms which, for our purposes, can be thought of as
synonymous. They include resonator guitars, resophonic guitars, ampliphonic guitars, steel guitars, lap steels
(though the latter usually implies electric, non-pedal steels), and Hawaiian guitars. When I do use
DOBRO®, I am specifically referring to an instrument manufactured by the O.M.l. Company.
This book endeavors to achieve several objectives:
1. To present an in-depth survey of the styles in which well-rounded lap guitarists should be
competent. Ways of creating and varying authentic-sounding solos in country-folk, blues, bluegrass,
jazz, and Hawaiian Islands styles are illustrated and analyzed. There are also surveys on playing in minor
keys, the use of retunings and the application of pedal-steel licks to non-pedal guitars.
2. To examine the playing of some of the top lap steelers. Tablatures of solos by Jerry Douglas,
Buck Graves, Mike Auldridge, Bob Dunn, Leon McAuliffe, Bob Kaii, David Lindley, Shot Jackson, Gene
Wooten and others are featured.
