Mike Auldridge, Dobro Takoma/Devi Records, D 1033, early 1970s, and Mike Auldridge & Old Dog Flying Fish Records, 1977.

I love the sound of the Dobro, now for some reason called the resophonic guitar. They are played on the lap (or held out flat if standing) and with a slide. I’m currently (at age 43) learning to play guitar, so maybe I’ll tackle Dobro too.

Auldridge also worked with a band called The Seldom Scene. A very clever name says I.

Another great Dobro player is Jerry Douglas, currently with Alison Krauss and Union Station.
