New Guitar
Mike @ 5:32 pm

Got a train in to Koln today and bought myself a nice new Dobro (all quite the challenge to my poor German skills) and have started to learn to play some nice mellow sliding blues. Here’s a picture:

My new Dobro

It’s suprising how loud a little guitar can be :).


  1. hi mike,
    i post a guitar blog at http://guitarguitarguitar.blogspot.com/, and i\’m always searching out guitar stuff on the net. resophonics are cool guitars; i can\’t actually tell if it\’s a square neck or a round neck? looks cool

  2. Hi Earl,

    Nice looking site. The guitar has a round neck; I thought a square neck would probably be a bit difficult to play in anything other than a hawaiian style (flat on its back over your knees).

  3. Nice, just wanted to drop a note of support 🙂 Let us know how the playing goes. Bluegrass I assume, or something else?

  4. Thanks Andy, what I tend to play is a bit more relaxed than most bluegrass, but that may change :).
