You're a beginner or intermediate Dobro player; you know a few tunes such as "Cripple Creek", "Old Joe Clark", and "Fireball Mail". You might have learned the basics of playing, but you may not have played with other people much or at all. You're at your favorite festival, and you've just come up on a HOT jam session. You'd love to join in, BUT you're afraid that (a) you won't know the tunes, (b) you won't know what to do or how to do it, (c) you'll be embarrassed or choke, (d) they'll ignore you and pretend you're not there, (e) someone will take your Dobro out of your hands and fling it into the woods, (f) they'll all get up and leave, (g) they'll laugh, (h) something even more horrible might happen. It doesn't have to be like that! Our task is to give you some tools and tricks so you can sit in on most any jam session and come out alive and grinning. It's easier than you think. This book will teach you how to do it! Written in notation and tablature. Free audio tracks available on the publisher's website.
