Hello! My 11-year old son has recently gotten very excited about playing a dobro/resonator guitar. He really struggled with trying to play my banjo, specifically relative to fretting on the neck. The lap-style and tonebar fixed that problem! He so loved playing a friend’s several weeks ago that he decided to buy one… with his own money (we helped)!
So, now what?!? I am showing him a few things on the guitar beginner lessons but the resonator is a bit different. The fundamentals (chords, location on the frets, etc) are there but technique and learning how to slide is different. I have been showing him a few rolls as he is using the three finger picks similar to a banjo.
Any recommendations out there?!? Thanks!
