Donation Driven Dobro Instruction

Pick Blocking From Scratch

Here is a step by step method to learn to pick block! Pick blocking (in my opinion) is essential to playing the dobro clean. People tend to be afraid of this technique, but fear no more! Take these 12 exercises slowly, one at a time, and you can be pick blocking within a couple months. When you're comfortable with the exercises, try the single note version of "Tennessee Waltz" (page 4 and 5) with pick blocking! Good luck, You'll thank me for it later, trust me!
