Finally a Dobro

As well as a sweet little Yamaha C151s classical guitar for son Tims' birthday, I purchased a Regal Squareneck Dobro while in Perth.
I have been intrigued by lap steel guitar for sometime now and, following a period of experimentation on a normal acoustic, made the decision that I wanted to explore this style of playing more seriously.
One of the main inspirations to do so was because of a guy called Stacy Phillips who features in the following videos.

He has also written a seminal Dobro tutor which I also ordered and received when I got home yesterday so I am into it -and damned difficult it is too!
